It’s almost Father’s Day, and we all know that homemade gifts make the best gifts. You might be searching Pinterest for the perfect Father’s Day craft for kids. I’m excited to share this one with you. Introducing my Father’s Day Magazine…
Father’ Day Magazine
I had created a Mother’s Day Magazine resource a few years back. I had many requests for a similar version for Father’s Day, so I created this Father’s Day Magazine just for YOU! Simply print and go, and have your students or child create a book for Dad.
Here’s what’s included to create your four page magazine spread:
Father of the Year Cover
First, have your child or students color the cover and add an illustration. Options are also included for “Man of the Year” to use in lieu of the word “Father”
An All About Dad Interview page
Next up is the Interview. Record your child’s or student’s responses on the blank lines. This is my favorite page. These answers are usually guaranteed to give you a good laugh!
A Writing Page
Then, have your child or students write about what makes their Dad the “Father of the Year.” Depending on the age, you can write the response if needed and have the child illustrate.
Handprint Keepsake Poem
Last is the keepsake poem page. Simply use a jumbo stamp pad or tempera paint to add a handprint. Have your child or students write their age and sign their names.
Assembling Your Magazine
Once the pages are complete, it’s time to assemble your magazine. You can use 12×18 construction paper and fold it in half to create a four page magazine spread. You may also hole punch the pages and use ribbon or yarn to tie the pages together.
I hope this post has given you some DIY Father’s Day inspiration. You can find my Father’s Day Magazine in my TPT Store!
