Make a Greeting Card to say Happy Parents’ Day!

Making cards is among the most simple and easy of Parents’ Day ideas, but is still an effective way to make parents happy. As you make your own card for your parents, you can teach your child various card making methods, like creating art using dried flowers and leaves, pencil shavings, etc.

Finally, be sure to remind them to write their messages on the card.

Painting a Picture as a Parents’ Day Gift

Allow your kids to use all kinds of colours and a variety of techniques to create pictures as gifts for Parents’ Day. This could be a picture of your family, a scene from a nice vacation you took with them, or anything else. Let them be creative when they paint and let their imagination run loose.

Some techniques they can use are finger-painting or spray painting (flicking the paint with a toothbrush). You can even help your kiddos frame the picture or portrait if they wish to do so. If their clothes get messy while painting, they can always be cleaned perfectly with Surf excel.

Say Happy Parents’ Day with Flowers

There are many easy flower-making tutorials available online that can help you teach your children. Instruct them to tie the flowers together, & add a nice note before presenting them as gifts for Parents’ Day.

Cooking up a Storm to Make Gifts for Parents
