This Father’s Day, gift dad with a memory he’ll never forget! Our paint resist Father’s Day craft is the perfect way to get dad in on the action and create a sweet momento with his kids.

You can do all the prep ahead of time, leaving him to soak up an extra special experience this Father’s Day.

What you need to get started


  • Watercolor paper
  • Glue
  • Watercolors
  • Paint brushes
Creating the paint resist

Sit down with your child and brainstorm all the things they love about their dad! My daughter thought of being outside, kicking around the soccer ball, playing princesses, and listening to his joke stories before bed.

Daddy and me Father's Day project: paint resist with glue

Using glue just as you would a pen, draw words and images to depict these ideas on your watercolor paper. We added a sun and princess crown, and then spelled out words for her remaining ideas. Let the glue dry completely before beginning to paint.

On Father’s Day, wrap up your glued paper with some watercolor paints and paint brushes. Your glue will have dried clear, so have your child explain that they’ll need to paint together to reveal his Father’s Day surprise!

When their paint creation is dry, dad can hang up the finished project to be reminded of a fun Father’s Day activity for years to come!
