Celebrate your students’ special father figures by building this adorable Father’s Day craft!

A Father’s Day Craft Idea That has All the Tools

This adorable Father’s Day craft activity is perfect to create a Father’s Day gift that will spark joy in father figures! In this craft activity, students will complete a writing prompt about a special father figure in their life, cut out the prompts and assemble this craft into a toolkit full of special words!

Inclusive Father’s Day Craft Idea

The base template can be decorated with messages specific to the special father figure in your students’ lives. These include:

  • I couldn’t build a better dad… 
  • I couldn’t build a better grandpa.. 
  • I couldn’t build a better brother… 
  • I couldn’t build a better uncle… 
  • I couldn’t build a better stepdad… 

✂️ Give Them the (Safety) Scissors 

This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities. 

With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:

  • strengthen finger and hand muscles
  • build dexterity and fine motor skills
  • improve hand-eye coordination
  • develop focus and attention.

And all of these skills are necessary to use a pencil and a fork; button a shirt and tie shoes; write, type and swipe.

Scissor skills are brain and muscle skills!
