5 DIY Father’s Day Gift Ideas the Kids Can make

Father’s Day is almost here and we all know Dad does not need another tie or a second pair of slippers (he can only wear 1 pair at a time anyway).

I have been searching some of the best (and most adorable) DIY Father’s Day Gift Ideas to share with all of you in one spot.

Seriously, how adorable is this for bay or toddler to Dad?! A trip to Goodwill could even get you a ball and mitt for cheap. Purple Power, magic eraser or a degreaser cleans the ball well.

If Dad has a desk he likes to show off his kids work at, this is a fun way to add color to his workspace.

This is a lot of fun to fill with worms and fish treats. I would supervise the kids on this craft so that enough candy is left over for Dad’s gift!

This is such a simple project for the kids that requires a bunch of bolts, washers and nuts and glue. I bet you can put an ask out in your community groups an someone may have an old can of these around for you. If you need to polish them up, put them in a plastic bottle with some apple cider vinegar and shake them every once in a while.

METALLICA | BLACKENED American Whiskey from Cask Cartel

I was sent product for feature. Opinions are my own


Did you know that June 14th is National Bourbon and Scotch Day and then Father’s Day lands on June 16th. Celebrate Dad with a bottle of not-so-average whiskey! The best part is you can order his bottle online right now and know it will arrive fast, packaged well and be a premium liquor and at a great price! Let me give you a suggestion of a bottle that is a hit in my home with guests!

I thought I have had good American whiskey before. I get caught by the locked case at my supermarket that I assume are the best of brands. Or I head to a Wine and Liquor store and see so many options and don’t know where to start. I have tasted some amazing straight whiskey and bourbon blends, but nothing compares to METALLICA | BLACKENED American.

By far, it is the smoothest whiskey I have ever tried. Now when guests come over I immediately have those who I know appreciate a good whisky try a sip and they about melt into their chair!

Take a virtual sip below….

It is a blend of straight whiskeys finished in black brandy casks and a proprietary sonic enhancement process called Black Noise. It uses batch-specific Metallica playlists, selected and arranged by the band, to extract additional flavor and characteristics from the barrels. The low hertz sound waves of the music increases the molecular interaction between the whiskey and wood. It was co-created with (the late) master distiller Dave Pickerell, formerly of Maker’s Mark and WhistlePig.

LoopRope Bungee Cord Tie Down System

I was provided sample. Opinions are my own

What are you getting Dad this year for Father’s Day? I bet your answer is the same as mine every year! I just never know how to shop for my dad. He is a simple man who doesn’t ever want much. He does build model planes, he works from home and on the road and my parents own a boat. Typically, I just resort to a gift card to his favorite restaurant or a new shirt. This year, however there is a product I think he can use when on the road and even on the boat, LOOPROPE.

Know someone that constantly struggles with rope and knots. No matter our occupation of hobbies, we all will need a rope at some point as well as a bungee cord and fasteners. When it comes to tying down a load with tarp, if you are not good at knots then good luck keeping your load secure.

When it comes to hobbies like camping or ATV riding (like our home), bungees are always a must and tie downs come along for the trip too.

Maybe you just have to secure a pet crate when driving, or fishing poles for a trip to the lake or river. Maybe you have equipment in your car you are tired of shifting in the back seat. Did I miss anything? The LoopRope is possibly the handiest gift you can buy for your home or Dad for Father’s Day. It is hard to not think of a use for this genius design. “It’s like the duck tape of bungee cords as the uses are absolutely endless!”


The LoopRope is a revolutionary bungee cord fastening system that eliminates the need for dangerous and limiting bungee cords, those messy cargo nets and most other light to medium duty tie downs. It is fully adjustable, never tangles, safer than traditional bungee cords and linkable so you can create custom cargo nets.

I use mine to keep my sub box from sliding all over my trunk area which it likes to do. I have to be careful how I hold it back as I do not want something rough that damages the speaker and I don’t want to interfere with the sound or create a rattle.

They come in 3′, 4′ and 5′ lengths. All the ends of the ropes come together at one point. They are all linkable even if cut in half. You’re first point of contact can be to make a slip knot even though this is acting like a bungee cord so your fit is tight! The clips will move around the rope for customized fit. The buoy rope is great for watercraft and even securing inflatables and coolers on the boat. Truly genius!

Nomad Battery Cable: Lightning Cable and Charger in One

I was provided sample. Opinions are my own

How many cords and chargers are lying around? Funny how 10 years ago we would wonder why I would ask such a question and here we are carrying cords, battery packs and extra car chargers around with us. With a house of boys it is a constant struggle to keep track of cords and battery packs. The Nomad Battery Cable is a game changer in this house and now I need 1-2 more for even more organization. Here is why…

I have a battery pack and so does my husband and son. Each of those bulky packs needs the cord. So, I always keep 2 cords in my car, one for our son in the back and for us in the front seat. Then I do the same in our truck for when we drive that. Those cords never stay put! That is because it gets grabbed to use for a charger and then never put back.

The Battery Cable from Nomad is a lightning cable and charger in one! Better yet, the charger is a small cylinder and not a large ‘brick’. Now, my goal is to just keep one of these in each car and one in the living room. This way plugging the charger back in means the cord is also available with it and that is less of a cord hunt when we need one.

  • New robust aluminum housing
  • 2,800mAh of power storage
  • 1X iPhone charge
  • Apple MFi approved
  • Pass-through charging technology
  • ballistic nylon braided
  • The battery enables one full charge for iPad, iPhone 7, 7 Plus, X, 8, iPhone 6, 6S and 6/6s Plus.
  • charges your phone first before then charging its internal battery

It is compact enough to just slip in my purse and if I need the phone plugged in, I can just reach for the lightning end of the cord and plug it into my phone without taking it fully out of my purse or travel bag.

You will love the convenience of carrying 1 cord that is light and compact! They make great gifts for Mom, Dad and are a game changer for traveling!
