Mother’s Day has come and gone and now it’s time to focus on the Dads in our lives. I usually wait until the last minute to figure out what to do for my husband. Usually, Pinterest comes to my rescue. Oh Pinterest, you know me so well, showing your pretty pictures of crafts and home dec I say I will make, but never do. This time, though, I’m determined to make a few of these Father’s Day gift ideas. Even my boys are excited to get started. They especially want to help me make anything that has to do with candy.

5 Last MInute Father's Day Ideas

At the Car Wash

Let’s start off with something easy to pull together at the last minute! A car wash kit. All you need is a few basic cleaning supplies, a tub and you are good to go!

Next, let’s dive into candy my kids have been begging for. Here is a cute idea to write a story about dad using his favorite chocolate and candy bars. (Just make sure you buy fresh ones, no need to give dad that leftover Easter candy I know you still have in your pantry.) 😉
