Father’s Day Activity Ideas

Planning on getting creative with Father’s Day crafts for someone special in your life? Here are some fun ideas from our playgroup community that you can do with your little ones together at home or at playgroup!

Footprint and Handprint Crafts

Who can resist cute handprint and footprint artwork?

Using our printable (below), paint your little one’s foot to stamp their footprint onto. Or you could make it even more personal by using dad’s actual shoe imprint!
West Byford & Bridgetown Playgroups did something similar to this last year.

Painted Mugs

A classic activity that is always a hit with parents. Using a plain white mug and acrylic paint, your little one will have a great time decorating their mugs. We love these ones from Little Wombats Playgroup where they taped the words “DAD” which they peeled off once the paint dried for a nice touch!

Host a Father’s Day morning tea / event

For our playgroup families, why not host a special event or morning tea and invite the special men in your lives?

We especially love what Beverley Playgroup did one year where they put on a fun craft that each child and dad had to complete together. This particular activity involved hammering bottle lids onto logs and sticking materials such as pipe cleaners and yarn to make a cool log face!

Photo Frames / Hanging Frames

How cute is this handmade activity from Wanneroo Playgroup? They supplied all the items and asked parents and children to choose one activity to make together.

Salt Dough Prints

Salt dough creations are always a fun activity to do with little ones.  The little ones at Toodyay Playgroup created these fantastic hand/footprint masterpieces which make a sweet gift.

Personalised hats

Get out your fabric markers and let the kids personally decorate caps for dad!  Boddington Playgroupies looked like they had lots of fun making these hats.

Decorative Pots with herbs

Have a dad that loves to look after his own garden? Decorate a terracotta pot and plant a herb for dad to keep like Bayswater Playgroup did. The end result is fantastic!
