DIY Father’s Day Gifts

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Jun 12, 2014 10:29:00 AM

DIY Father's Day GiftsWith Father’s Day just around the corner, I enlisted the help of my adorable nephews, Brayden and Rylan to make special gifts for their dad and grandpas. This project is so easy it kept the attention of five-and-a-half and four-year-old boys.

Brayden, who will be in kindergarten this fall, loves zombies! He drew one with a red apple!

Rylan just turned four last month and likes lots of colors and made sure his signature was on the front.
