This king of the grill card is a great Father’s Day handmade card kids can make for dad and grandpa. They will appreciate the thought and love the card.
When you live in a four season state or country you look forward to every new season, but summer holds a special place in your heart. It’s the time spent at the beach, camping, biking or doing anything else outdoors. And when it comes to summer food, it’s the grill and the s’mores.
Nothing sounds better, at least in my opinion, than bottling up all the things mentioned above in one weekend.
I was making fun of my husband this past weekend when I told him about my latest craft project – the one I’m sharing today. I was telling him that our kids could not make a king of the grill card for their dad. The reason is that this family has a queen of the grill. 🙂
Like most families, we started with the husband being in charge of grilling but slowing the wife took over. Not because she wanted to. She had to. A working late dad and a mom who needs to feed her family are not a good combo.
So first I was just prepping everything for him so he could start grilling right away after coming home from work. And in time I learned how to use the grill and do the job myself.
The only place I would not grill is when we go camping. My hubby does a wonderful job at starting a fire and now the boys like to get involved too so I let them have their thing and share this together.
OK, let’s go back now to our king of the grill card and even more ideas that you can find in our Father’s Day craft collection. You can combine this card with one of these 20+ gifts kids can make for dad.
King of the grill card
- King of the grill template
- Cardstock paper: white, yellow, brown and black or red
- Black marker
How to make a king of the grill card
The King of the grill template comes with two versions:
1. home template – print the template, cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding paper.
2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.
This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
Step by step directions
Fold the grill circle in half.
Glue the writing paper onto the bottom half of the grill and the “Happy Father’s Day!” label onto the top half.
Glue the fire to the back of the folded grill.
Glue one or two grilling spatulas onto the grill. If you use one spatula, glue it in the middle of the grill. If you use two spatulas, glue them onto the sides of the grill.
Glue the legs at the bottom of the grill.
Use a black marker to write a message for dad.
