6 DIY Father’s Day Cards That Will Make Dad Fist Pump

Sure you could just buy dad a card (we guessssss), but where’s the play in that?! Make papa’s day extra personal and playful with a homemade card. Set up a craft area and partner with your little one to create one of the following designs to show dad how much you care.

Fingerpaint Cards

A great choice for little-little kids, finger-painted cards give them a fun sensory experience as they honor Papa. Your design options are as versatile as your skill level. For beginners or tots, a simple paint-handprint with a cute message—”High Five to You Super Dad!”—will make him feel warm and fuzzy for sure. Older, craft-loving kiddos, will get a kick out of the Fingerpaint Monkey Card featured above.

Hole Punch Card

If you would describe your crafting skills as “beginner only”, this one’s for you! The only skills required are the ability to use a hole puncher and follow a straight line—and if those lines are a little wobbly, just uh, blame the toddler.

Washi Tape Cards

Another beginner-friendly option that utilizes one of our craft box favorites: washi tape! If you’re new to washi tape, it’s a Japanese paper tape that’s gently adhesive (need to reposition? No prob.) and comes in SO many beautiful colors and patterns. If you can place tape on paper, you’ve got this.

LolliPOP Prize Ribbons  

A card that comes with candy?! Count us in. These creative prize-ribbon cards are a sweet (sorry not sorry for the pun) way to honor dear ol’ dad.

Pasta Bow Tie Cards

Oh the creative places you can go with dry noodles and patterned paper. These colorful bow tie cards make our heart swoon with their brilliant re-imagining of farfalle and dad’s dapper style. If you’ve got younger kiddos, skip painting, choose a pasta shape, and glue a simple design or word—something like the word “DAD” spelled out in small macaroni is a winner! Glue it, give it, done!
