4 easy Father’s Day crafts and activities
Let the little ones say ‘thank you’ with these 4 easy Father’s Day craft activities, including cards, photo frames and baking! What about making voucher books? Filled with different ways they can help out over the weekend…from breakfast in bed to tidying bedrooms. You could even encourage writing skills by getting the children to write letters and stories they can take home for Father’s Day.
Of course, all of these activities don’t have to relate directly to Dad. For those children who might have different family members or guardians looking after them, they can be easily changed and adapted.
