Drawing a Heart for a Simple Father's Day Craft for Kids

Having the ability to draw a killer heart & create script-hand lettering can be a huge bonus if you’re making this with littles that can’t write yet!! However, letting the kiddos go wild and make this gift for dad their own is a great option too!

Crazy simple supplies and super budget-friendly! Especially if you buy good quality, low-priced frames.

Clearance can be an easy solution if you’re looking for unique frames at a smaller price point. However, if you’re on a time crunch you can easily find a good selection of simple frames for $5 or less!

Budget-Friendly Frames
for your Father’s Day Craft…

  • Wood Grain Frame – This frame is super simple and so incredibly budget-friendly! You can seriously throw this craft together for around $6 with these frames. Say what?!


  • Simple White Frame– A little more pricey than the above frames, but these frames supply such a super classic look! Can’t really go wrong with a white frame like this!

Frame for Your Photo Craft for Father's Day

  • Linear Frames – This one has a classic look Dad will love. Plus, it comes in multiple colors!


  • Unfinished Frame – These are a great option if you have a little extra time on your hands! Your kids can paint their own frames for Daddy, or you can finish them with a stain to match your home decor. Plus, they definitely won’t hurt the wallet!


  • First, you will need to do a little prep work. Pick up 3 photo frames.


  • Second, cut your card stock down to size so that it will fit into the photo frames easily.*NOTE: I used 3 – 3.5 x 5 photo frames when I did this with my kids a few years back.


  • Using your markers, write the words WE ♡ DAD, writing one word on each piece of card stock.*TIP: If your children are older, encourage them to do this part themselves & get creative with it!


  •  Now for the best part, plan a super quick photoshoot! Get some shots of your kids individually holding their frames.


  • Once all photos have been taken, print the pictures and put them straight into the same picture frame!

Other Ideas & Options

This craft is super simple, but can easily be adapted to meet your individual needs.

Not sure the way we made ours will be the best option for you? Check out these tips and ideas!

Have more (or less) than three kids? Try some of these simple solutions!

  • Simply add extra words to the mix – try something like We love Dad tons (perfect for 4 kids)


  • Mix up the wording completely – try other fun dad-related sayings such as Dad Rocks! (perfect for 2 kids)


  • Spell it out instead – Try spelling the word Daddy or Grandpa, putting one letter in each frame instead of doing a phrase! (perfect for 5+ kids!)


Only have one child? Easy Peasy.

I Love Dad Gift Idea for Father's Day

  • Keep it simple – use the simple phrase I ♡ DAD all in a single frame. Pick a larger frame and make it stand out.


  • Make it funny –  using the phrase Just Like Dad, take multiple photos of your child in different poses or making silly faces.

Life & Homeschool Author

Hey guys! I’m Mary, homeschool mom of 3 amazing kiddos.

I’m so excited that you decided to check out my little corner of the world!

If you have been following our journey for any length of time, you already know that I’m obsessed with coffee, organization, and all things simple.

I’m also a huge dog lover and introvert 💗

My homeschool style is very eclectic.

I enjoy a solid mixture of structure and free range. I set goals for myself and my children each week, but I put no pressure on perfection.

We use a wide variety of curriculum in our home.

Some of our current favorites are The Good and the Beautiful, Life of Fred, Beautiful Feet Books, and Lifepac.

While my kids do spend a good amount of time learning at desks, they also spend countless hours exploring their creativity and practicing a little independence.

I love mountains, rainy days, and sitting by the campfire. 

Our family recently relocated to the PNW and we have been enjoying finding new nature spots to explore together 🙌🏼

I can’t wait to connect and share all the things I’ve learned on our new journey! 

Just a Note…

Thanks for checking out the holiday portion of the blog! 

Typically summer is the most productive time for my blog. However, our family is currently living in temporary housing and we do not see an end in sight (thank you housing marking 😪) — meaning my workspace & supplies to produce quality content it extremely limited.

I am still working, but it’s nothing like normal.

As always, we appreciate your patience!
