This was such a fun and easy father’s day craft to do with the kids! I loved the freedom of expression that came with it; from picking out the colors to what the picture would say, and then painting it himself! Jude calls my dad many different names, even by his first name! So, I let him pick which one he wanted written for his craft. He chose to go with grand pop, which is a mixture of two names he calls him. Love it!! We also made one for his own papa and his other grandfather. Hope also jumped into the fun by getting her little fingers in the paint and having me turn into a ninja to keep her from eating it. Even though it is nontoxic, I’m sure it wouldn’t taste all that great! This fathers day craft took us maybe 30 minutes to do but it could be faster than that with bigger kids. This father’s day craft is meant to look different, so keep that in mind for when you see the final result. If you have straight angles, of course it will make it look neater, but if you have curves in it like we did with the “Grand” word, then it will not look as smooth. You’re welcome to fix it with a paint brush, but we decided to leave it as is.
For this father’s day craft you will need:
Cardstock, Paint, Scotch Tape, Paintbrush (optional), Pencil (optional)
Step 1: If you decided to use a pencil, write out (very lightly) what you want your poster to say. Then you will use it as a guide for where you want to lay your tape. Use the tape to spell out your words
Step 2: Paint it. Let your kids pick out the colors and smear the pain with their hands or paintbrush
Step 3: Once it is dry, carefully pull away the tape. Don’t forget to erase the pencil marks if you decided to use it
