At Early Learning Furniture we have a set of free Father’s Day resources that are great for teaching children about Father’s Day and for children to complete as gifts for their fathers. See our full range of free resources.
Father’s Day as an observance, officially began in 1910 in Spokane, Washington. Senora Dodd proposed it to honour her father, who had raised her after her mother died in childbirth.
Father’s Day continued to grow and be celebrated by more and more people, until it gained national-event status in 1924 under President Calvin Coolidge.
From here the movement continued to grow and in 1966 President Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed the third Sunday of June to be Father’s Day.
Here are a few of our favourite Father’s Day craft ideas for kids.
