Eco-Friendly DIY Father's Day Gifts

By Peaceloveorganicmom
Father's Day is only about a week away so I wanted to share some eco-friendly ways to make dad some special keepsakes. After saving some of the cardboard boxes from our weekly recycling, my girls and I came up with the idea to make their dad a coupon holder and coupons as well as a Father's Day badge. These are very simple crafts and great for young children to make dad something fun!
Coupons for Dad
Eco-Friendly DIY Father's Day GiftsEco-Friendly DIY Father's Day GiftsMaterials:
(1) Toilet Tissue Roll
Medium Sized Piece of Cardboard
Glue Stick
Colored Recycled Paper
Crayons
Scissors
Handmade coupons are such a sweet way for kids to give their dad something special. Have your little one come up with a few ideas for special things he/she can do for dad. Then take a toilet tissue roll and flatten it. Glue a piece of paper on the end (we used dad's favorite color, green) to seal it shut. Next, let your child decorate the front to personalize it. Then cut pieces of cardboard small enough to fit into the coupon holder. Cut squares of recycled paper to place on the front of the coupon to add a little but of color. Have your child write their ideas on the front of coupon and then stuff the coupon holder full!
