10 Easy Father’s Day Cards for Kids to Make
This is a bright and easy card that even two year olds can help with! Their little handprints will look adorable on the card! While you have to do the cutting, kids can help with gluing and placement. You can use a straw instead of the golf pick.
Any child who knows how to scribble can make this card! All you need to do is the prep work – cutting letters and taping the paper down, then letting your toddler go crazy scribbling with all her crayons! Peel off the tape, and you have a masterpiece!
This is a unique use of handprints – to make a little monkey! This card will require painting your child’s fingers, which he’s sure to love!! Some more paint and googly eyes and you have a cute little monkey! If your child is a preschooler, get him to write the message too.
This is a lovely little card whose beauty lies in its simplicity! Cut out your toddler’s handprint in colored paper and ask her to stick it on plain card. Show her how to fold the fingers and see if you can get her to write I love you!
It really doesn’t get easier than this!! Get your toddler to dip his thumb in some paint and print on a plain card as you guide him. Once you have enough ‘grapes’, paint some vines and get him to write at least the word ‘Dad’!!
This is a bright sunshiny card that doubles up as a collage for toddlers to make! Get your little one to don an apron and paint a bottle cap yellow. Then cut out the sun’s rays and help him arrange them around the cap and glue everything in place. Draw a face on the sun and you’re done!
This is a perfect toddler card for Dad! Let the kids tear up colored tissue or crepe paper and stick them within the fish outline. Add on a googly eye, draw a hook and Dad’s fishing card is ready! How easy was that?
Pasta crafts are always a hit with toddlers and your child will probably want to make more of these cards! Get some stiff card, and ask your toddler to paint bow tie pasta shapes before gluing them on. Write on a wish for a simple and elegant Father’s Day card.
We’ve done handprints, now it’s time to have fun with footprints!! This works best with little feet that’ll fit on a card. There’s not much to do once the print is in place, though you can ask your little one to pick a candy for Dad – ask him to choose between Mars, Milky Way or Galaxy, to stick to the theme.
This one’s an impressive looking card that requires a little prepping on your part. Cut lines in the card edges to fold into a collar. Let your toddler decorate the tie with colored paper or stickers and then stick it onto the shirt. Show him how to fold the collar over the tie. Stick on DAD letters and the card is ready!
Toddlers will love the fun that goes into making the card and they’ll be very proud of their creation. Dad’s heart will be warmed at the sight of his little one going into so much trouble for him! So ask your little one to choose a card he’d like to make, gather the supplies and get crafting!
