It is always difficult to come up with new and fun idea for Father’s day presents, but this year I think we have done it with these tiny pictures.

You will need:

  • Mini canvas and easel – ours came from Tiger for about £1
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Tape

Draw around the mini canvas on the piece of paper. In the middle of your template draw the outline to a picture that reminds your child of their Dad i.e. a car, tennis racket, heart etc. Then cut it out.

Tape the stencil you have just made to the mini canvas; you’ll want to use a tape that is easily removed without leaving a sticky residue.


Using their fingers get them to fill the stencil with the paint.


Wait for it to dry and then remove the stencil.

Happy Father’s Day
