Father’s Day Gifts – made from children’s artwork

Father's Day Gift GuideThis is part 6 of our Father’s Day Gift Guide series.

There’s really no better way to celebrate dad on Father’s Day with a special gift just from the offspring. While of course they can “give him” nearly anything at all, we’ve found a bunch of awesome gifts from children’s artwork that are actually made by the kids. (Well, mostly.)

When artwork is the gift itself, the HP Digital Photography Center has some great tips. You can scan even 3-D macaroni art to present on a DVD, or scan and reduce all the pictures of Dad that the kids have drawn, and assemble them in a photobook or scrapbook.
