So, if you're like me, you're probably anxiously scrambling for a fun and frugal gift idea (or ideas) that your kids can give dad this Father's Day weekend. My hubs is SO hard to buy for. Not because he is hard to please, necessarily, but because he's just a low-key kinda guy. So, in addition to taking him out to eat - tradition every year - I'd like to have the kids make a fun DIY gift for him to receive on the day that celebrates him.
I scoured the interwebs and found these fun ideas that are easy and frugal. Your kids will have fun making any one (or all!) of these DIY gifts and will undoubtedly be proud to present them to their dad this Father's Day.
