5 Easy Father’s day cards for kids
1. Thumbprint card
It’s easy as well as fun to make. Toddlers love this activity as they love the colours. All you need is watercolours and paper. We made this card couple of years back and my daughter was so engrossed while making it for her dad. Dad’s little princess was excited to make her dad look like a hero. Thumb painting is a great activity for developing Prewriting skills too. Strengthening muscles of the thumb for proper grip.
2. Monkey handprint Card
This is a unique use of handprint – to make a little monkey. Colour the palm of the child and take its print on the paper. Paint a tail and a head with few branches and your hanging monkey is ready. You can either draw or paste googly eyes to add more fun to your card. You would love to hear those giggles after pasting the googly eyes for sure. If your child is a preschooler then make him write the message.
3. Rocket cutout paste Card
A simple card but needs adult’s help as the cutouts have to be provided to kids. This activity is not only fun for kids but also help them to identify and learn shapes. The fire of the rocket can also be shown by paper strips cutout or bright-coloured threads or wool threads that could be used giving simple knots.
4. Popsicle cutout paste card
Kids love popsicles in summers and you can see that twinkle in their eyes when they make one. Any coloured paper cut-outs can be used but felt paper has a different texture that gives vibrancy to the card. We had used felt paper and it had come out very well. Buy Feltpaper here.
5. Watermelon slice cutout paste Card
Another favourite fruit of everyone in summers is watermelon. The red colour of the fruit is catchy and make kids jubilant. All primary colours like red, blue and green fascinate kids a lot. Usage of any coloured paper cut out will do but felt paper gives a bright look. A heartfelt message on it and you are done.
