10 Father’s Day Gifts From Kids with a Creative Touch

Father's Day

We’re gearing up for Father’s Day already! It’s amazing how fast it comes up!

These are some ideas for store-bought Father’s Day gifts from kids with their own touch of creativity added to it. And really… does Dad want another tie? (Ask him what he really wants or ‘bribe’ him to find out… I have a way to do just that below!)


The kids and I like to do a mix of homemade something from the kids and a Father’s Day gift that he’ll really want (i.e. that’s from the store). As I mentioned last week, I’m excited to be a brand ambassador for JCPenney this year. It fits every life, even Dad’s!

George and I picked out a new wallet for Dad at JCPenney. He needs a new one pretty badly. We got him the same wallet he’s had for over 10 years (one of the first gifts I ever gave him when we were dating), but a bifold this time instead.

We decided to make it a little special for Dad by adding some George doodles and drawings inside!

Adding a creative touch to Father's Day gifts from Kids

I have a package of printable business cards that we used that are the perfect size to slip into the wallet slots. Otherwise we would have used scrapbook paper and cut it the same size. George is still getting the hang of writing.

He practiced the letters he knew: L, M, and H, but didn’t feel confident enough to draw a D for Dad. For a couple of the cards, I wrote ‘DAD’ and ‘I Heart U’ and George colored it in with Crayola Twistable Colored Pencils.

On the rest of the cards he made his own doodles and drawings (a rainbow). When it came time to tear the cards apart, George was excited how magical it was that we didn’t have to use scissors.

He took his time filling up every card slot of the wallet and filled up the cash slot as well.

    My favorite gift to give my own dad was to rent a canoe and go fishing with him. We both love to fish and really enjoyed the special time we had together. We never really caught anything but I loved hearing the stories of when he grew up.
