This fab pocket money photo frame for Fathers’ Day craft is brought to you by Sara-Jayne from Keep Up with the Jones family. Sara-Jayne is a fellow mum to boys, she has three under six!
I know that when we were little, my dad loved our homemade gifts. He also loved Walnut Whips [and more lately Ferrero Rocher] but the look on his face when he opened a present that we had clearly made just for him was the best feeling ever. Me and my sister were always so proud of ourselves when we handed over a sticky tape encased piece of handiwork and stood back, ready for the grand unveiling.
I love homemade gifts because they’re worth so much more than any expensive gadget to me as a mom, just as they were to my dad. They teach that money isn’t the most important commodity in life, and they instill a great sense of pride in our little ones – whilst also helping to foster the joy of giving rather than receiving.
Pocket Money Photo Frame for Fathers’ Day
This year my boys have already started making for their own dad. Their dad works as a software engineer and he has a rather large desk filled with monitors – and so to cheer him up at work they decided to make him a frame for his desk – and it cost less than £1 to make.
You Will Need:
- One clip frame – we got ours from The Range, for 39p (UK Aff Link/US Aff Link)
- Scrabble Tiles – ours were from the sale corner in Hobbycraft for 49p (UK Aff Link/US Aff Link)
- Glue Dots (UK Aff Link/US Aff Link)
- Colouring crayons and paper, or a photograph
How To make a Pocket Money Photo Frame for Fathers’ Day:
It’s so simple to make. The boys decided on a message to spell with the scrabble tiles and added a glue dot to each one, spacing them across the frame.
They then drew a picture of them with their daddy on the paper and we put it into the frame. As daddy is quite nosey, we’ve popped in a little photo for the purposes of this tutorial. We don’t want to ruin his surprise!
Clip it together and wrap it up!
It’s so simple, and so special – and a lovely reminder of the little boys who adore him and are waiting for him at home every evening.
