I love when my kids make homemade gifts. They are so special, unique and always cute. As Father’s Day rapidly approaches, I wanted to share 10 homemade Father’s Day gift ideas baby can give to dad. These ideas work for baby’s with moms help, or even elementary aged kids that are able to create more independently.

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

Super cute ideas! I did a Father’s day round up the other day and also linked the race car shirt. So cool! I can’t wait until my little guy is older to do something like that.
