Father’s Day Handprint Rocket Card

Sharing is caring!

What better way to show dad how much you care about him than with a handprint card? Let’s make it a Father’s Day handprint rocket card so we can write these nice words inside it: “Dad, I love you to the moon and back!”

I absolutely love this message and have already created a couple of crafts to match it: the Father’s Day footprint paper plate craft and the Father’s Day paper craft.

We love all sorts of cute messages to write to dad or grandpa so in our collection of Father’s Day crafts you will find different card ideas, from “Dad, you are one in a melon!” to “I’m hooked on you, dad!“.

How to make a Father’s Day handprint rocket card

Start by folding a cardstock paper sheet in half. Place your kid’s left hand next to the folded line and trace it with a pencil.


Cut out the handprint card and fold it in half.

Trace on a different color cardstock paper three triangles, one will go to the top of the handprint card and the other two (which should be identical in size and shape) will go the sides of the card. Glue all the triangles to the back of the folded card.


Use a round object to trace two or three circles on a third color cardstock paper. Cut out the circles and glue them onto the front of the card.


Use the hole punch to make a few holes at the bottom of the rocket.

Cut yarn strands of the same length. Fold the yarn in half and thread the fold through a hole in the card to make a loop.

Thread the other end of the yarn through the loop and pull it tight to secure it to the card.


Repeat for the rest of the holes.

Use a black marker to write inside the card: Dad / Grandpa, I love you the moon and back!
