In a few months, Fatherís Day will be here. Your kids are probably trying to come up with unique ideas this year. To help them, here are some Fatherís Day ideas for younger kids.

Make a Fatherís Day card using construction paper, crayons and draw dad on the front with the words ďI Love You Dad!Ē Mom can also download the many coloring templates kids can use to glue on to construction boards to make larger 8-1/2x11 cards. .

* Kids can take their teddy bears and dress them up with a hat, tie, and glassesÖ.and place a Happy Fatherís Day sign for the bear to hold.

* Kids can help you make a Fatherís Day breakfast for dad and present it to him either in bed or at the kitchen table.

* Kids can help mom make gingerbread cookies and using piping to outline the facial features. It can then be glued to a piece of cardboard and the kids can decorate the cardboard with dadís favorite things!

* The kids can present dad with a card containing a list of chores they will do for dad for a week.

* They can also make a story book using construction paper, to tell about their dad and why he is so special!

* Mom can bake dadís favorite cake and the kids can decorate it with dadís favorite sports games, such as baseballs, footballs, soccer, or basketball.

Kids love to draw, paint and mold. Using some clay, they can make dad a handprint and sign their names on the palms. He would certainly love that! In fact, kids also love to build things, so why not build day a special kite (with the help of mom, of course), then the entire family can enjoy this wonderful present.

Special t-shirt painted by the kids; a card made of construction paper and decorated for dad; a picture frame made out of two pieces of cardboard and painted by the kids; or dadís favorite cookies made by the kids with a little help from mom. If dad is a golfer, why not have mom buy a box of golf balls and have the kids paint their initials on each one. How about taking a small Xmas tree and turning it into a Fatherís Day tree. Decorate it with his favorite candies and cookies. Or if dad is a baseball or football fan, the kids can decorate it by taking white Christmas balls and drawing baseball stripes on them; and making cookies in the shape of footballs using gingerbread dough! A baseball cap with dadís initial can adorn the top of the tree, or you can find a mini sized football helmet and add his name to it as well.

More often than not, dad would probably receive a tie as a gift. Well, make this particular tie special. Let the kids be as creative as they want with paints and sparkles. Does dad lose the remote control often? Why not make him a TV remote holder using cardboard and fabric. The kids can decorate the cardboard with glow in the dark paint color, so that no matter where the holder is, he can always find it!

No matter what Fatherís Day handmade gift ideas you come up with, there are plenty of ideas you and the kids can come up with. Donít forget the handmade ashtray; your dad can use it as a paperweight, too!

Fatherís Day ideas for younger kids can be achieved by asking them what they would like to make for dad; or perhaps buy for day. One thing though, he may not want any more ties! Make a Happy Fatherís Day Sign using construction paper, and hang it in the kitchen or living room area. Dad will be so happy to see how much effort his children have put into making his day a special one!
