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.

- Paper plate
- Craft paint: gray, black, white
- Construction paper: red, yellow and orange
- Circle punch
- Black marker
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.
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.
Step 5: Use a black marker to write a nice short message for dad: ” I love you to the moon and back”
