20 Cute & Fun DIY Father's Day Cards for Kids to Make

Are you looking for a fun card for the kids to make for dad this Father's Day?

Read on for Father's Day cards your dad will love, from free printables to foot and handprint crafts, plus plenty of puns to make him laugh!


Let's face it, Dads aren't always the easiest people to find gifts for, especially on Father's Day.

Ties and tools are given so much, they're a cliche and the first thing he expects on his big day.

But wouldn't it be fun to give him a surprise?

There are lots of fun gifts kids can make for Father's Day but if you'd prefer to make your card just as cool as the gift, we have you covered for that, too.

Each of the following cards is either special enough to be a gift on its own, or can easily be a great accompaniment to a gift.

(Or they do the job for you, ike the shirt pocket cards which hold a gift card for Dad's favourite store.) 

Many of these cards offer your kids a wonderful opportunity to practice fine motor skills while expressing their creativity through colouring, gluing, cutting, and more.

Some of these lovely cards capture those little precious footprints or handprints that dad will treasure years down the road when those tiny hands are all grown up.

There is something really special about Dads and these cards are all a wonderful opportunity for kids to let him know how much he means to them.

Happy Father's Day!
