Fathers Day Crafts for Toddlers
In our home we’ve always been big fans of homemade gifts and I think there’s something really special about something that your child makes just for you.
Father’s Day is the perfect time to create something that you’ll want to store as a keepsake, something that your kids can create with a little help that dad’s will genuinely love to receive.
Your kids will have fun getting creative and dad’s have something to treasure, a win all round!
As there’s loads of homemade Father’s Day ideas here today I’ve divided it into two lists for you, Fathers Day gifts toddlers can make and Fathers Day cards toddlers can make.

It’s designed to be suitable for toddlers and preschoolers with toddlers generally considered to be one and two year olds and preschoolers normally three and four year olds.
As you will know, children at this age develop rapidly and there’s a big difference between the abilities of a ole year old and those of a four year old so take a look through the list for fun craft ideas which are most suitable to your child’s age, abilities and most importantly to their interests.
Of course, as with all activities for toddlers and preschoolers your child will need to be supervised throughout, especially if they are using small items.
With this many ideas there’s probably more than you’d want to make in one year so it’s a good one to bookmark or pin this post for later so that you can return to it again next year.
