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.

There are many ways you can show dad on Father’s Day how special he is and these cards are very easy to make by kids as young as toddlers and preschoolers.

They are great last minute card ideas and you can use colored pencils or markers to draw the hair. This way you don’t have to wait for paint to dry.

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.
