Materials for simple Father's Day cards

  • Cardstock Papers
  • Markers (get a lot of colors!)
  • Washable Paint

Fun Father's Day Cards for Kids

You are out of this world card: What better way to make Dad feel proud to be a father than with this cute little card. It takes only minutes to make, and it can be a fun activity for your kiddo to "blast off" their creativity.

To make this, all you need to do is paint your child's foot with brown or red paint to make the rocket's body. Have them press their foot against the cardstock paper, and then the two of you can paint the wings and other features. You can go as crazy as you want with the design!

When you are done, it will be time for you to tape Dad's favorite candy bar to the bottom of the card. Remember to finish by using a black marker to write 'YOU ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD, DAD!'

Voila! It's ready.

Stay Cool, Dad: Remind Dad just how cool he is with this fun Father's Day card. Not only will your child have fun making it, but they'll also appreciate the leftover treats :)

For this one, you will need a pack of Mike and Ikes. Luckily, they go for about $1 at the local store, so you don't need to blow your budget! Find the same-colored candies and stick the toothpicks through their bottom. Now all you need to do is finish it off by writing whatever you want on top. It could even be "Stay Cool, Papa."

Gold Medal for Papa: We think this is the perfect father's day card for kids to make. The creativity is great, dad will love it too!

An empty round container would be perfect for making a fun Olympic gold medal for Dad. Why? Because he is the best of course! Cut ribbon or construction paper for the accents and throw in some of dad's favorite treats for his sweet tooth.

Handprint Monkey Card: We are sure he'll be hanging this cute little monkey on the fridge.

This cute card only needs a handprint and some creativity to make. If you don't have googly eyes, no worries. A marker and a little bit of artistry are all you need. Don't forget the best part about it, the message 'I love hangin' with you, Dad!'

<Heart-Warming Handprint Card: Make his heart melt with this simple handprint card.

This is probably one of the easier ones to make on this list. Trace your child's hand to create this touching card for Dad. You can encourage your kid to write whatever comes to their mind on top of the card; we are sure Dad will appreciate it either way.
