Father’s Day is just around the corner, and I always like to make something with my kids for their dad this time of year. I really love a gift or card that let’s the kids’ individual voices shine through. Today, I have a little Father’s Day card printable that your kids can color and fill out to make a sweet little gift that Dad will love.
Supplies needed to make your own Father’s Day card printable:
- White Cardstock
- Colored Cardstock (optional)
- Permanent Adhesive Roller
- Paper Trimmer
- Envelopes (A2 or A7)
- Crayons or Colored Pencils
- Father’s Day Coloring Card Download
Start by printing off the Father’s Day coloring card on white cardstock (the printable can be downloaded from the supply list above). If your printer will print double-sided, you can just print the card out that way. If not, just print both pages, trim, and glue front to back with permanent adhesive.The card is 4.25″ x 5.5″ and will fit perfectly into an A2 envelope. Or, if you prefer to add more color to the mix, you can trim down a piece of colored cardstock to 10″ x 7″, and fold it in half to make a 5″ x 7″ card. Then cut the printable up into individual panels and use the permanent adhesive to adhere the card pieces to the larger colored card. This card will fit perfectly into an A7 envelope.
Either way, when your Father’s Day card printable is assembled, it’s time to let the kiddos get to work. They can color the front cover, draw a picture of dad in the frame, and then fill in the blanks in the note for Dad.
Help smaller children fill out the note by asking them the questions and writing in the answers for them. You are sure to get some adorable answers! I love that my four year old thinks that Dad’s job is cleaning up his dishes.
I hope you will have fun making these Father’s Day card printables with the kids in your life. Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!
