- The Original Paint and Macaroni Picture Frame
This Father’s Day original craft is super easy to make with some cardboard and the macaroni noodles that have been sitting in your pantry. Trace and cut out the frames and let the kids work their creative magic to create and paint unique, one-of a-kind-frames. Have them glue on macaroni and paint the frame with dad’s favorite colors. Once the paint and glue dries, add in some stickers of things that dad loves for a personal touch.
- A Fun Message Board For The Fridge:
This craft is a great solution for a cluttered fridge that has grocery lists and magnets scattered everywhere! Why not get your organization onwith a crafted message board, where everything can be organized in one place and the kids can write notes to dad! All you need is a whiteboard that’s magnetic, fun magnets, a plastic cup, an eraser, extra magnets and some whiteboard markers.
Place the whiteboard on the fridge and have the kids draw a portrait of dad with the markers and have them add in lots of fun magnets or the ones already on your fridge! Make a corner for the grocery or to-do lists so the whole family can stay organized.
Glue the spare magnets to the cup for marker storage or glue them to the extra whiteboard markers to make them stick. It’s a wonderful gift that keeps you organized all year long!
