It’s that time of year again when all the ‘Best Dad’ Coffee mugs, keychains, and t-shirts come out. Most of it ends up being stuff that is set aside and forgotten about. Despite the fact that it is supposed to be cherished and loved. A gift from the kids to Dad. Well don’t spend wasted money this year, and give Dad something he will like. Golf ball art can be made by a very young child (with the help of an adult of course) and Father’s Day will be fun and easy!
Golf Ball Art
This is a really simple art project for kids to do, with your help of course. My son did it for his Dad when he was only about 10 months old. And he could’ve done it earlier then that. Pretty much as long as your child is sitting up and reaching for things, this will be something for them.
How To DIY Golf Ball Art For Father’s Day
So first take your card stock and put the stickers on to say whatever you want them to. Remember that the cardstock is a little larger than the frame, cutting it before hand is a little easier than after.
Next, tape the cardstock down, face up, into the bottom of you 9×13 pan.
Next Take your paint and dab the colors you are using all over the card stock. Make sure it is enough to be spread around. If you have to open the pan back up and add more during. Then put the lid securely on the pan and tape it shut.
My son was 10 months to do this activity and he needed to be shown how to tilt the pan to roll the balls at first. But then he absolutely loved it. You may need to help make sure the paint really gets on the entire card but it is honestly up to you. Tobias did a pretty good job of getting it all over himself, I just finished off one small corner at the end.
When the painting is done, remove the cardstock from the pan and let it dry entirely.
Peel off the stickers and see what it looks like. For ours, you couldn’t see the letters super clearly so I filled them in with the metallic paint pen.
Then take your little one and paint the bottoms of their feet to take a footprint. I got both feet and was pretty proud of how it turned out. Then write the name and age in your paint pen. Make sure it is completely dry and place it into the picture frame.
And that’s it! Like I said, it’s a super simple activity with minimal items needed. A lot of which you may already have! Tobias loved doing this project and Stuart loves that it was made just for him. It hangs in our bedroom.
