With Father’s Day coming up quickly, Brexton and I took some time to create a FUN, handmade card that he can give to Daddy next Sunday to say thanks for being a “TEE-rific” Dad! For this birthday, Brexton got a set of golf clubs, so him and Kyle have been outside practicing in the backyard. With it being one of their favorite things to do together, it seemed like a perfect focus for the card!
This DIY Father’s Day card was super simple and really only took us about 15 minutes or so! It’s great if you’re looking for a crafty activity to try at home with your kiddo/s that also saves you $5-6 on a card at the store (can you BELIEVE how expensive cards have gotten?!). And I know you moms out there! — if you have a kid, you probably already have all these supplies at home!
What You’ll Need
- Construction Paper
- Hot Glue + Gun
- Glue Stick
- Golf Tee
- Styrofoam Ball (golf ball size)
- Your Child’s Hand!
- On a green piece of construction paper, trace your child’s hand three separate times.
- Use the scissors to cut out the hand tracings (or have your child do this!).
- Take the cut out hands and use a glue stick to paste the hands onto the bottom of a separate piece of construction paper (we used blue) with the fingers facing upwards.
- Using your hot glue gun, glue the golf tee into the “grass” that you created with the hand cutouts.
- Cut your styrofoam ball in half, and use the hot glue to glue that half-circle piece onto the top of the golf tee.
- Have your child write a message to Dad! We wrote “You are a tee-rifiic dad. Love, Brexton”.
