Father’s day is right around the corner.  Like, hello weekend, hi it’s Father’s day.  This is Jacob’s second Father’s day.  Last year I began growing 3 types of hops for him, and they are actually still growing well!  This year, Hunter will be giving Jacob something.  But what?  It maaayyyyyy be one or two of these ideas.  Maybe.  Maybe not (Jacob if you are reading this….).

These are all crafty gift ideas.  Since Hunter is only 1, the craft will be done by me, but with Hunter’s inspiration.  If you’ve been following me on pinterest, these will not be new to you!  If you don’t follow me, feel free to, it’s a fun place. 🙂

And as a bonus idea, Giselle share this one: I had my son paint a flower pot then put his handprint on it, before modge podging and filling with some of my hubby’s favorite candy. Cute and easy!

Are you making anything for your dad?  Or are your kids making anything for their dad?

I am a major procrastinator this year….

  1. I love when you put posts like this – they all look so great to make. I did end up making that month by month photo thing for my kids 1st bday, and well it didn’t look as impressive as yours it still was nice to see how much he grew over the year. I’m going to have to keep this bookmarked for future references.

    That last one about the pots and putting hand prints on it – I was looking at someones blog yesterday who had tried, it is hilarious! http://www.theboringrunner.com/2013/06/mothers-day-pinterest-fail.html
