Business Card Holder

This one looks great and has high functional usage. Recycle a soap box and turn it into a professional-looking business card holder by using coloured paper. Suit it up by designing your dad’s favourite office outfit and place it on his desk. This is sure to put an end to his over-stuffed wallet!

Travelling Bag

If your dad is a heavy traveller, then this gift will be perfect! Make a travelling bag for your dad — so he thinks about you even when he is miles away! Use craft paper and shoe lace, and design the bag with artistic patterns! Your dad can store his travel essentials in this crafty bag.

Key Holder

Recycle cardboard pieces to create a colourful key holder for your dad. Since most dads are known for misplacing their keys, we’re certain that this will come to the rescue! Put an end to last-minute-panic attacks with this colourful key holder. Add a personalised message or stick a photograph on it!

Greeting Card

Beneath every suited up dad is a mighty superhero! Believe it or not, we’ve only made use of cardboard and paper in this greeting card activity. Customise this greeting card and write a message straight from your heart. It will also look great on your dad’s desk, don’t you think?

Table Decor Gift

One more desk add-on that you shouldn’t miss. Make a tree in the shape of your dad’s hand. Just as how a tree shelters us, dads too protect and provide a solid foundation for our upbringing. This abstract gift will show your dad how much you love him! Don’t forget to add a personal message.

Photo-Frame Gift

Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? Reminisce about the good ol’ days with dad by going through your old photo albums. Pick out your dad’s favourite memories and stick them on this recycled photo frame. Make it as colourful as you can. In addition, you can also make a scrapbook of memories! Perfect for an early morning surprise!


We’re sure your dad will enjoy these Father’s Day gifts just as much as you would have had while creating them. Though one day is never enough to thank our dads, let’s make the most of it! Happy Father’s Day to every superhero out there!

    Awesome ideas by flintobox. My child really liked your worksheets especially the one with space craft games. He even loved the wildlife safari box and world traveller was his favorite. I am most contented with this educational subscription of Flintobox among so many which I have tried. Keep it up..
