Over the years we have created many Father’s Day crafts that come with cute messages: “Dad, I love you to the moon and back”, “Loads of love, dad!” , “Hooked on dad!” and “My dad rocks”. It’s time for a new one. To give a more personal touch to our new craft, we made with a a handprint.

We love handprint crafts and we know that our adorable “One in a melon” craft will melt daddy’s heart.
