“Last Minute” DIY Gift Ideas for Grandpa on Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a wonderful time to show our love and appreciation for not only Dad, but also Grandpa too. See our ideas below for easy, thoughtful gifts that you can help your children make for the grandpas in their lives this year!

  • Homemade card – let the kids make Grandpa a homemade card and encourage them to draw their own artwork. If you want inspiration for specific Father’s Day ideas, a quick Pinterest or Google search will provide many funny or cute sayings!
