Father’s Day is coming up! Let your kids show Dad how much he’s loved with a homemade gift.
If you’re looking for fun homemade Fathers Day gifts your kids can make, I’ve got a great idea for you! Dad will love knowing that his kids think he’s the coolest!
Fathers Day Craft
Just a heads up… This craft may require a little prep work from mom. Sometimes, craft foam can be difficult to cut so Mom may need to do it ahead of time.
However, if your little ones want to make this craft independently, you can certainly use construction paper instead. It’s much easier for preschoolers to cut on their own.
What You’ll Need:
- Black, Pink & Bright Green Craft Foam Sheets – or construction paper if desired
- School Glue – liquid glue will work better with foam
- White Poster Board or Cardstock
- Pencil or Marker
- Google Eyes
- Popsicle Stick
What You’ll Do
To start this craft, you’ll need to download and print the popsicle template. You can do that HERE.
You can even laminate the template for stability if you plan to use this in a classroom setting or with multiple children at home.
Cut your template out.
Trace the popsicle onto bright green craft foam (or construction paper) and cut out.
NOTE: This is the step some kids will need help with. Craft foam is bendy. Some children will need you to hold the foam for them. Others may need you to do all of the cutting on this step.
Glue the popsicle stick to the back of your popsicle. Be sure to center it so the popsicle is lopsided.
Glue your popsicle to your white poster board or cardstock.
Glue google eyes onto your popsicle. Add a black smile made with black craft foam, or use a black marker to draw one on. Cut pink rosy cheeks from craft foam, and glue above your popsicle’s smile.
Again, some children will need help with this step, especially since the pieces you’re cutting are even smaller than the first one. They should be able to do it on their own if you are using construction paper.
Cut out popsicle droplets from scraps of the bright green craft foam and glue them around your popsicle.
Add your message with a marker or print your words and glue them onto your card.
You’re all done! Dad will treasure this Father’s Day craft card because it was made with love!
