Father’s Day will be here in a few short weeks so it’s the perfect time to get your children involved in creating a fun Father’s Day Gift for the special hero in their life. Every year my kids enjoy creating handmade cards for their Dad and we love putting together a simple, practical gift for him. Today I’m excited to share with you my favorite Top 10 Father’s Day Gifts Kids can help Create which includes our fun Energizer Headlight Gift that we are giving to our Dad this year.


My husband has several hobbies that involve working with small pieces. I like to call him my Tinker Guy. If it needs fixing and it’s fixable, my husband can surely fix it! Over the last several years he has enjoyed everything from fixing old coo-coo clocks to setting up model trains. At least once a week he will summon one of our children or me to come hold a flashlight for him for extra light. When I saw the new Energizer Headlight at my local Target, I purchased it with a $4 off coupon and I knew it was the perfect, practical gift for Dad! I love how it’s a hands-free tool that makes Dad’s life a little easier when he’s working on all of his projects and hobbies. I’ve made a printable gift tag for you to make the gift even more simple to put together!





Supplies you will need:

  • Engergizer Headlight (Use this coupon and purchase your Energizer Headlight at your local Target. They have several different varieties and colors of the headlight to make sure you get the perfect one for your Dad.)
  • You Light Up My Life Dad Printable Gift Tag
  • white cardstock paper
  • colored cardstock paper (optional)
  • hole punch
  • 2 1/2-inch circle punch
  • 3-inch scallop circle punch (optional)

1. Print off the You Light Up My Life Dad Printable Gift Tag and cut it out with your 2 1/2-inch circle punch. If you’d like to, cut out a scallop circle shape on colored cardstock paper and glue it behind the gift tag as a background color.


2. Punch a hole in your gift tag and the Energizer Headlight packaging and tie the gift tag onto your headlight. Now it’s all ready to give to Dad on his special day!
