Father’s Day Crafts for Preschoolers

There is a big day coming up for Dad!  Time to get ready to show him how awesome he is.  I have pulled together a bunch of Father’s Day Crafts for preschoolers that I thought you might enjoy.  Before we begin, I always like to share some great books to read with Dad on Father’s Day…(or any other day of the year).  I recently was introduced to the book Dad and the Dinosaur -and it is a perfect gift to give Dad this Father’s Day!  In the Story Dad and the Dinosaur, the little boy loses his toy Dinosaur.  Only Dad understands the importance of the Dinosaur and he helps his son find it.  It is an adorable book for little ones to read with Dad…  it says to dad…”Dad, I know you understand just what I need!”

Now, on to our Father’s Day Crafts for Preschoolers!  First, we have our free Father’s Day activity pack for your little one.  Print it and have your little draw pictures about their dad, write about him, or color him something he will love.  Here are a few of the images of what is included in our printable Father’s Day Activity pack.  In all there are 8 pages.

I absolutely love handprint crafts….if you do too, here are some awesome Father’s Day Handprint Crafts

The second thing that I LOVE is a book mark!  Every day loves to read and needs a book mark…what a great way to encourage your little reader -make dad a book mark!  Actually, in our home, Daddy loves to read big long books to the kids before bed time.  The current book he is reading is the Chronicles of Narnia!

This next one is a cute fun thing you can do with dad on Father’s Day.  As you may know, I love hand and footprint crafts. I have an entire pinterest board devoted to them.  This one is easy, and makes a great memory:  Daddy and Me footprints.

Okay, this next one is the coolest.  My kids absolute LOVE the Monsters Inc Movies.  Create your own Monster Hug card!  Super Cute!

Here is another easy footprint craft to make before the big day…I love you beary much footprint!

This next one is super sweet.  You may also know that all of the art work in my home is made by children…  this would make a great one for my wall..(or maybe a nice one for your wall!)  This could make a nice gift for dad to put in his office or workplace… A We love Daddy photo frame!

Here is another Father’s Day craft for preschoolers…  one that can entirely be made by a preschooler:  A Pom Pom Frame.

This next one is a great way to recycle some juice boxes after you drink them.  The children would have lots of fun painting the inside and making a photo frame just for dad!

I thought the necktie bags I found were clever and cute, so I just had to share…

This printable father’s Day booklet is also really awesome.

OR…make Dad a “Hooked on Daddy”  card!

Lastly, make dad a Flying Superhero!

Handwriting Patch Curriculum
Teach a child handwriting AND drawing using our handwriting curriculum.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound ReadingMrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
