Make Father’s Day special this year by encouraging your kids to make him something themselves! These Fathers Day crafts for kids are fun and easy-to-make.
Father’s Day was not celebrated in the US, outside Catholic traditions, until the 20th century. As a civic celebration in the US, it was inaugurated in the early 20th century to complement Mother’s Day by celebrating fathers and male parenting.
It celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make to their children’s lives.
Its origins may lie in a memorial service held for a large group of men, many of them fathers, who were killed in a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia in 1907.
Father’s Day in the United States is on the third Sunday of June.
