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.
- Black Sharpie.
- Googly eyes (optional).
- 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.
- 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.
- Apply glue to the fish, and apply squares of tissue paper in layers adding more glue each time. Let it dry.
- Glue on a googly eye and let dry.
- 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.”
- Write happy Father’s Day on the inside of the card and affix to the gift.
