My kids and I have been debating on which gift to get dad this year.

It’s very hard to buy a gift for John (my hubby 😊) because he always says that he wants nothing.

This is really frustrating for me and the kids because we really want to get him something to show him just how much we love and appreciate him.

So, after hours of debating on which gift to buy, we finally decided that it would be much more meaningful if we actually make the gift ourselves.

That’s when we started researching different father’s day crafts that are easy enough for kids to make.

We discovered a few great ideas that I’m going to share with you today.
