7+ Fathers Day Finger Painting Ideas (last minute gifts)

Sharing is caring!

Father’s Day is less than a week away!  If you are like me, it has come along way too quickly.  Nothing makes Dad feel appreciated more than a handmade gift, especially one that comes from his children.

These last minute Father’s Day Finger Painting Ideas will help you and the kids come up with ideas of gifts for Daddy! Plus, they can share in making the art along with Mom! Who knows? Dad may even want to get in on the art fun as well!

These Golf Lover Gift Ideas are also a fun addition to a homemade gift idea for dad!

What age group can make these easy Father’s Day crafts? 

While kids of all ages can join in on the fun, little hands tend to have the perfect time! (this doesn’t mean that older kids can’t join in on the fun!) These are great activities for fine motor skills and a great option for making a homemade gift for Fathers Day. Sure to put a big smile on dads face with this sweet gift idea.

What art supplies do I need for these easy painting ideas? 

The list could be endless! I always like to keep my art room stocked with art supplies. Some of the simple materials that I keep on hand are:

  • ​construction paper
  • white paper
  • white cardstock
  • tissue paper
  • paint marker
  • fun paint colors
  • scrap paper
  • alphabet stickers
  • googly eyes
  • ink pads and stamps

And anything else that you want to add! Be sure that you have kid-safe washable paint to use as well for handprint art or fingerprinting activities. Young children will love having options to make homemade cards, pictures, or a fun craft for creative father’s day gift ideas!
