Nothing beats a homemade gift from the heart! Enjoy quality time together and create an easy DIY Father’s Day Gift that will build memories to last a lifetime!

Jar filled with Lego Duplos for an easy DIY Father's Day Gift Idea

Buying gifts for men is always hard! It seems like Keith rarely needs or wants anything, which can make material items seem like a waste of money. But I do know one thing that he always enjoys, and that’s spending time doing fun activities with his three boys…making THIS the perfect gift!

The kids and I recently sat down together and brainstormed a long list of their favorite activities to do with Dad. It wasn’t hard, since he keeps us constantly on the go! Plus, each child had their favorites, so our jar quickly filled up when we began writing these different adventures onto individual building blocks. I know that Keith will love the thought behind the gift, as well as the seemingly endless stash of readily available options for those precious Saturday afternoons when we happen to have some free time! And as we check off each item from our “list,” the boys will literally AND figuratively be building special memories with their Father.

That’s a gift to last a lifetime!

So what exactly went inside Keith’s jar? What are the kids’ favorite ways to spend time with their Dad? Well, let’s start by making one thing clear: whatever these boys do always involves food! So if you’re gifting Dad with a jar of activities, you’ll probably want to include some snacks to have on hand as well!

For instance, I recently caught Keith and Casey diligently working on one of Casey’s new Lego sets that he received for his birthday…while also munching on some Horizon Snack Grahams!

I hope that you’ll take some inspiration from our family’s favorite activities and snacks to create a special DIY Father’s Day Gift for your own dad this season as well — and build many special memories along the way!

    1. Hi, Jen! No, unfortunately it’s not a printable tag — just some stickers that I used to make a homemade tag. 🙂

  1. What kind of blocks are these? I’m having trouble finding ones that are smaller than mega blocks but bigger than Legos because that’s what it looks like would fit in a large jar.

    1. Hi, Shelby! These were Lego Duplo, which are the larger Legos for younger kids (but not quite as big as Mega Blocks). 🙂
