We made our last minute Father’s Day cards today and I think they turned out pretty well.
Materials Needed for Father’s Day Cards:
1. Corrugated cardboard cards and matching envelopes. I got mine from Michael’s but if there isn’t one near you perhaps Target has them. I found these Kraft cards and envelopes from Amazon (affiliate link). They’re not the same, but they would work just as well!
2. 1 scalloped heart punch
3. 1 scalloped circle punch
4. crayons and glue
5. assortment of scrapbook paper, but old wall paper samples would work just as well
Directions for Father’s Day Cards:
1. Lay out an assortment of colourful scrapbook paper and let your students choose their favourites.
2. Punch 1 heart and 3 circles for each student. To save time you could pre-punch a large variety of hearts and circles ahead of time for students to choose from.
3. Print “Dad” on the circle shapes in a dark colour
4. Glue “Dad” and the heart onto the front of the card
5. Print “Happy Father’s Day” inside the card in a variety of colours
That’s it! Like I said, super easy, and everyone in the class was able to make these.
The only tricky part for a few of them was making sure the card opened the right way. Very very careful listening was required — ha ha!
