Father’s Day Card!

This Father’s Day card is super easy for children of all ages to create with a little help. It will allow them to put their creativity into it and develop fine motor and problem solving skills.

You will need:

  • Construction paper. At least one full size sheet for the card itself and half of another sheet for the fish.
  • Tissue paper is assorted colors, cut into squares.
  • White glue and a spreader.
  • Scissors.
  • Black Sharpie.
  • Googly eyes (optional).

Instructions

  1. Take a piece of construction paper and fold it half. This will be used as the card base. We used blue paper to symbolize the water.
  2. Fold another sheet of construction paper (a different color from the card) in half. Remove half of the paper. Draw the outline of a fish and cut it out.
  3. Apply glue to the fish, and apply squares of tissue paper in layers adding more glue each time. Let it dry.
  4. Glue on a googly eye and let dry.
  5. Glue the fish onto the front of the card. Using a sharpie, write a cute message on the front. We used “I’m hooked on daddy.”
  6. Write happy Father’s Day on the inside of the card and affix to the gift.

Enjoy!
