If the treats on Pinterest are any indication, all dads wear ties and are super into grilling and mowing the lawn. While I’m sure this fits the bill for some dads, I can tell you that my husband only wears a tie when required (at most once a year), would much prefer that I cook no matter the cooking surface, and has never touched a lawn mower.

And just as all dads are different, so are all children. Some may enjoy intricate kitchen projects, while others, like mine, would rather use their fingers to trace “XO” into the frosting of store-bought cupcakes. And it is with this deep understanding of difference, that I curated a list of fantastic Father’s Day food gifts that the kids can help make.

There’s something here for every dad and every kid too. Truly.

Father's Day food gifts that the kids can help make: Popcorn Father's Day gift with free printables at Live Craft Love

Popping pop corn: My kids can do this! And I love how this Popcorn DIY Father’s Day gift idea with free printables at Live Craft Love uses a play on words without assuming that your pop is into fishing or grilling. The only assumption here is that he likes popcorn — and c’mon, that’s fair! Right?

 

Father's Day food gifts that the kids can help make: "We would be MUFFIN without you, Dad" Father's Day printable at Eighteen25

I can’t help it — I love a good play on words. This We would be MUFFIN without you, Dad free Father’s Day printable at Eighteen25 is a little corny, I know, but very cute nonetheless. And making muffins with kids is about as easy as it gets in the kitchen. (Especially if you buy them at the store — ha!)

Father's Day food gifts that the kids can help make: Monster Train Mix Father's Day gift with free printable at Lil' Luna

I realize that not everyone feels comfortable referring to their children as little monsters, but I certainly do — lovingly of course! And my little monsters would think this Monster Trail Mix Father’s Day gift at Lil’ Luna is hilarious. We’d probably make our own train mix to customize it with some of our papa’s favorite ingredients, and throwing together train mix is totally manageable. Especially if I let the kids snack along the way.

How hilarious are these Father’s Day Bacon Roses at Lily the Wandering Gypsy? Part of what makes them funny is that they actually look pretty. Amazing! These take a little more work to make, with a craft piece. But if you and the kids are up for it, I think they’d feel like a treat to any omnivore dad, at least the ones who love bacon.

Father's Day food gifts that the kids can help make: Tie-shaped pizzas for Father's Day at SheKnows

I joked about ties — probably because my husband never wears them and I know women who do — but I get that it may be a perfectly appropriate symbol for a dad in your life. If it is, these Father’s Day tie-shaped pizzas at SheKnows  are adorable. If you use a store-bought crust, even the littlest kids can help make these.
