Father’s Day handprint card for kids to make

Sharing is caring!

Our Mother’s Day handprint card turned out so adorable that we just had to make a dad version, too. We have created footprints for a Father’s Day craft before but this is our first handprint craft dedicated to celebrating dad. This Father’s Day handprint card can be adapted for grandpa too. Just paint the hair grey and there you go: a perfect card for grandfather.

Personalize the card with paint to match dad’s hair color and accessorize it with glasses, hat, bow tie or a tie.

Step 3: Use a black marker to draw the eyes, nose and mouth. You can add a mustache to make it even cuter, even if dad doesn’t wear one.

If you prefer, you can use googly eyes instead of drawing them.
