DIY Father's Day Cards

With Father's Day coming up, we have been squirrelling away making some homemade Daddy's Day cards for Papa Brown and thought you might like to try them too!

We tried 4 different designs so there is something for younger and older children to try and the whole family can enjoy getting crafty.

Superhero Card - Captain America 

You Will Need :

  • Red, White & Blue Card or Paper
  • Pen or Pencil
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Circle & Star Shapes (different sizes for drawing around)

1. Draw around and cut out your circles - 2 x red, one white and one blue for the centre

2. Draw around and cut out your star shape (we used a start from a shape sorter toy... I suggest finding your star shape first and then you know how large your circles need to be)

3. Glue your circles on top of one another to create the Captain America symbol, stick to a piece of white card and write 'Daddy Is My Superhero' inside

Superhero Card - Batman

You Will Need :

  • Black & Yellow Card or Paper
  • Pen or Pencil
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Oval Shape (for drawing around)

1. Draw around your oval shape to create the larger black oval and cut out

2. Draw around your oval shape again on the yellow material and cut it out just (around 0.5 cm) inside the line so you create a slightly smaller oval to sit on top of your black one

3. Do the same again this time with your yellow oval on black paper or card to create the base of your Batman sign

4. Now to create our Batman symbol... pinch the smaller black oval in half and mark the halfway point with a pencil

5. Draw a small rectangle around the halfway mark and cut it out

6. Take your child's fingers and thumbs and draw around them (as shown below) to create Batman's wings and ears. Cut out along the drawn lines and your Batman symbol is complete! Fix to card and write 'Daddy Is My Superhero' inside.

Shirt & Tie Card

You Will Need :

  • Different Coloured Paper & A4 Card
  • Pen or Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Ruler

1. Fold your A4 piece of card in half and place the top edge of your ruler along the top edge of the card

2. Splitting the width of your card into thirds, use your pencil to draw two lines along the bottom edge of the ruler, each marking from the edge of your card to around a third of the way in, so you have a space in the middle

3. Cut down the folded spine of the card from the top until you reach your drawn line (around 2.5cm or the width of your ruler) and then cut along those lines, leaving the gap in the middle

4. Fold the cut section diagonally down into the centre to create your shirt collar

5. Draw and cut a tie shape out of your coloured paper (we used spotty wrapping paper!) and stick it between your collar. You could also stick buttons on the collar or draw a pocket on the shirt... you could even add a bow tie

"Hands Down, Best Daddy" Card

You Will Need :

  • Paint
  • Card
  • Your Child's Hands!

1. Print your child's handprints onto the card, you might like to dip their hands into paint or paint it onto their palms with a brush

2. Add "Hands Down, Best Daddy" on the front and you're done!
