fathers day

Fathers Day is extra special. Fathers are a pillar of strength for the family. They are the most underrated, un-praised and unsung people and yet they are the most valuable asset of the family. And with the Fathers Day approaching, let’s prepare to appreciate and acknowledge all that they do for us.

Here are some ideas to get inspired with:

1. Stress Ball

With today’s stressful life, Dads tend to burn out at times. Lets make them a stress ball to ease out all the tensions. Its a 5 minute craft but very effective.

Supplies needed:

  • 2 Balloons
  • Scissors
  • Maida (All-purpose flour)
  • Permanent Marker/ CD Marker

Method:

1. Stretch the ballon to ensure it doesn’t stick from inside. Fill it with Maida upto the neck and tie a knot.

2. Take another Ballon and cut of the brim at the end of the neck to ensure better elasticity.

3. Wrap the filled up balloon in the second balloon. this will ensure better protection against “leakage”.

This little gift is great for the Dads (or Grandpas) who love to read.  A bookmark with a cute photo of their son (or grandson) is bound to bring a smile on their face every time they open their book to read.

What you need – photo cut out, string, scissors, permanent marker.

  • Click a pic of your kid in the desired pose. You can do this with your own pic too !!
  • Take a print, cut out the desired shape, and get it laminated (for protection).

  • Punch a hole at the top.
  • Thread the bookmark with wool / thread or any other piece of string. You are good to go.
