This is a great craft for kids and Dad is sure to love that it will keep his favorite beverage cold.

Upcycled Tie – Find a solid color tie at a local thrift store. Chances are you can score one for a buck or so. Let children use fabric paint to decorate the tie as your children see fit. They will no doubt come up with a colorful creation that Dad is sure to love.

Remote Control Station – Find a simple, square storage basket. Fill it with dried snacks such as nuts, chocolate, and chips. Add a piece of Velcro to the side, and another piece to the remote control. Attach the remote to the basket, and Dad will always know where to find it along with some great snacks.

Movie and Munchie Basket – Find a simple basket and fill it with dollar store candy and snacks. Add some inexpensive DVDs or a movie theatre gift card. You can even include “coupons” offering to treat Dad to a Redbox flick if you would like.

Personalized Cell Phone Case – Find a solid colored cell phone case at your local dollar or retail store. Let kids use Sharpies to create their own message to Dad on the case. Dad will love seeing their artwork and creativity each time he takes his phone out.

A Personalized Coupon Book – Snag a simple mini notebook at your local dollar store. On each page make Dad a personalized coupon he can redeem later. The coupons can be for things like chores, a massage, a lawn cutting, etc. Of course these coupons should never expire!

Personalized Drinking Glass – Find a fun, oven safe drinking glass or mug at your local dollar store. Use Sharpie markers to write a message to Dad on the glass or draw a picture. You can then bake the glass at 275 for about 20 minutes to set the design.
