3 DIY Jars Of Love - Father's Day Crafts For Kids

Father's Day is just around the corner! For quick-and-easy craft ideas, we've put together 3 craft collections for you to make the most of Dad's special day. 😊

In part 1 of our 3 craft collections, we're sharing 3 DIY Jars of Love ❤️ to give you a quick pick between a few perfect Father's Day ideas. All you need is a mason jar and some simple ingredients found around the house. Let's get crafting!

1. LEGO Building Memories Jar

You and Dad make it together through thick and thin. So show him your gratitude by creating a meaningful LEGO jar for him. Gather up some blocks of LEGO, jot down one of his favourite activities on each block, and stack them up in a big mason jar. Spending time with Dad doesn’t end on Father’s Day! Grab your jar when you want to do a weekend activity together, select a block and complete it! When you’re done, stack the LEGOs on top of one another, symbolising the memories 'built' together over time. 💕

2. Homemade Treat Jar

Share a goodie stash with your dad to enjoy on his special day! To make Dad a personalised snack jar, pick out some of his favourite treats and layer them inside a large mason jar. Then, tie a piece of ribbon or twine around your jar and a gift tag with your special Father's Day message that reminds Dad how much he means to you. 💖
