5 Father's Day Gift Ideas

Father's Day is such a special day for all the amazing dads out there. And, like with all of the holidays we celebrate, it's a great time to tie in some themed lesson plans that you can do in classroom (if you're still in school) OR at home! We can't wait to share some cool ideas that are not just fun for Dad to receive, but for your students and kiddos to make!

1. Mustachedads treasures (1)

These little mustaches are so much fun! You can try having your kids add them to a picture of their dad, use the mustaches as a fun photo prop, or just make a silly mustache card. Take a look at the full lesson plan here for more details.

2. Layered Gift Cardsdads treasures (2)

Layered gift tags are a great project to help your kids feel included. This may be an easy project, but it will leave your students feeling very accomplished. Help students put this little tag on their Father's Day gift for a finishing touch. Take a look at the full lesson plan here.

3. Father's Day Fundads treasures

This jar project is the perfect way to teach organization your your kids! With only a few supplies, they can take a boring glass or plastic jar and turn it into a great storage place for dad. Take a look at the full lesson plan here for more details on assembly.

4. Heart And Ribbon Gate Fold CardHeart And Ribbon Gate Fold Card (1)

Who doesn't love a sweet red heart gatefold card? Although hearts are typically used for Valentine's Day, we think this card is too sweet not to use for Father's Day. Check out the lesson plan here for more details.

5. Hearts In Window Cardheart cards (1)

This cut-out heart card lesson plan with the envelope is the whole package. You can easily add some variation by giving your students the option to use the heart or use a class taken picture in the middle instead. Just like the gatefold heart card, you can turn this card project into a writing assignment and get your students to practice their writing.
