DIY Decorated Toolbox
Gift your favorite handy-man a new toolbox on Father’s Day! Decorate a plastic toolbox with finger paints, paint markers, and paintbrushes!
Cover your child’s hand with finger paint and press the hand to the side of the toolbox to leave an outlined print on the side. Use paintbrushes to fill in any empty areas of the handprint with additional paint.
Let the painted handprints dry. Using a paint marker, write “DAD” on the side of the toolbox and any other decorations!
Once you have let the toolbox dry overnight, fill it with tissue paper and various gifts for Dad.
A few “Dad” gift ideas: Starbucks gift card, travel mug, tape measure, grill essentials, favorite candies, nuts, etc.
Additional ideas: personalize the toolbox by adding the logo of a favorite sports team or images that represent Dad’s favorite things (basketball, cars, cooking, etc.)! You can also use a tackle box instead of a toolbox for a Dad that loves to fish!

DIY Kid’s Art Candy Pot for Dad
Made To Be Momma’s simple art pot is an easy DIY gift for Dad on Father’s day. Using a medium-sized terra cotta plant pot, paint the bottom of the pot black, leaving the pot rim unpainted.
Allow the paint to dry. Then, using metallic paint markers, have your kids draw a picture of the family on the pot.
The metallic paint markers will be visible on most acrylic paint colors, so you can try painting the pots with Dad’s favorite colors too!
You can also write a message on the unpainted rim using a paint marker, or leave it blank.
If a child isn’t happy with the result, just paint over the design, and try again.
Once the artwork is completely dry, fill the empty pot with a bag of Dad’s favorite candy, tied with a ribbon. You could also fill the pot with a plant, gift card, garden gloves, or small garden tools.
