Free Father's Day Craft Events

Dad deserves a special gift from the kids almost as much as mom does, and finding fun, free craft projects for the kids to handcraft him something is a great way for your children to create a beautiful gifts while building on their natural creativity! Here are some great ways for your children to express themselves in the name of "dad".
With the many free projects the kids can participate for father's Day,
they are sure to create a special memory for dad or grandad!
Today from 9:00 a.m. - noon, kids can participate in the free Kid's Workshop at  Home Depot (3300 Carpenter Rd., Ypsilanti or 45900 Michigan Ave., Canton) to make Dad a special Valet Organizer suitable for home or office use. If that doesn't work, Home Depot has added a special Father's Day Kid's Workshop June 18, from 9:00 a.m. - noon where kid's can build dad his own tool box!

Michael's Crafts (3655 Washtenaw Ave., Ann Arbor or 41904 Ford Rd., Canton) is hosting a free make-it, take-it craft event on June 11, 10:00 a.m. - noon where mom's need only purchase the frame, and kids (ages 3 and up) get to create their own handmade masterpiece for dad's special day! All supplies are provided to decorate something really special for dad, and the best part is, there is no clean up for mom!

The local libraries are also getting into the spirit of Father's Day with several free projects. Kids can show Dad their love by personalizing a key chain and a card for him at the Ypsilanti District Library (8975 MacArthur Blvd., Ypsilanti) from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 14 or YDL-Whittaker (5577 Whittaker Rd., Ypsilanti) From 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 16. Then on Saturday June 18, head over to the Ann Arbor District Library ( 2359 Oak Valley Dr., Ann Arbor) from 11:00 a.m. - noon to make an awesome personalized Father's Day card.

If that weren't enough, last year I came up with an idea to help my kids create something fun that my husband would appreciate - And use. Customized golf balls decorated with Sharpie markers. So make sure to check out our fun Golf Ball projects for Father's Day.
