What to make for fathers day?


There are a ton of DIY gift ideas for dad! 


Just a quick search, “Father’s day Ideas for kids” will load up a ton of amazing ideas. 


I’m here to show you this one which is easy peasy. 


Here are the details of how I made this simple Father’s Day tape resist craft/activity for kids: 


  • Use Masking tape to create letters and words onto cardstock paper. 

  • I used two cardstock paper attached in the back with tape for more space and for easier folding into a DIY Father’s Day card. 

  • Then, get creative! 

  • Use dot markers or markers to create a simple and easy Father Day Gift for dad! 

  • Once the drawing is complete, have your littles remove the tape for a fun fine motor activity! 

  • My girls love removing the tape and it’s easy because it’s masking tape! 

  • Voila! You’ve presents to make for dad on Father’s Day with this simple Tape Resist Activity! 




You can also incorporate a bit of paint or markers into the mix instead of dot markers. 


My youngest enjoyed dotting around and filling in the letter holes and my oldest enjoyed creating a rainbow with it. 


For our Mothers Day Tape Resist Activity we used some foam shapes to color around and create a shape when it was finished too which was awesome! 


There are so many fun ways you can go about it! 




Father’s Day Presents from babies


These are great for a differentiated set of ages. 


Both my 4 and 7 year old enjoyed making these for dad. 


But, what about babies? 


Can they try this out too? 


They can with a bit of help! 


Babies love putting things in their mouth. 


So, with supervision and help from a parent you can direct them to painting with the dot markers or a DIY baby paint. 


This simple Father’s day gift for baby is very fun and can be made as one of many quick gifts for dad.
