Paper plate footprint Father’s Day craft

Sharing is caring!

Surprise dad with an adorable paper plate footprint Father’s Day craft this year!  It is guaranteed to put to put a big smile on his face and show him how much he is loved. Inspired by our own Father’s Day rocket craft, we created a variation of that craft. This one adds a more personal touch as it uses our kid’s footprint. Besides, we managed to combine two of our favorite crafts: footprint crafts and paper plate crafts.

Supplies:

Paper plate moon

Step 1: Start by painting the paper plate to make it look like the moon. Use gray paint and add a few drops of white and black here and there. Once you’re done painting, splatter a few drops of white paint on top of the paper plate.

Step 2: Fold yellow construction paper in half and have your kid step on it, with the foot close to the folded line. Trace the footprint and cut it out.

Paper strips

Step 3: Use the circle punch to make 3 circles from red paper and glue them on top of the footprint. Cut orange and red paper into strips and wrap one end of each strand of paper around a pencil.  Glue the other end of the paper strips under the back flip of the footprint card.

Step 4: Glue the footprint card on top of the paper plate moon. Cut a triangle from red paper and glue it on top of the footprint card, on the paper plate. Cut 2 small orange triangles and glue them at the bottom of the footprint rocket, one on each side.
