The Dad Card

Guys, I’m super excited to share today’s Father’s Day craft with you – The Dad Card. You know how people say ‘man card’ or they’re going to ‘pull the parent card’? This means they get to trump a decision, or get the final say. Give Dad his very own ‘Dad Card’ so he gets priority for decisions on his special day! The best part – you can make it really quick and easily using on-hand supplies!

Fun, right? I’m eager to see what things hubby pulls HIS Dad Card for 🙂 Now, for mine I used whatever supplies and scraps I had on-hand, and you can do the same. Just make little tweaks as you need if you have different random supplies. No need to spend lots of money!

Directions

  1. Use your markers/paint to color the popsicle sticks as desired. Use your hot glue gun to secure them into a frame – overlapping as I did, if you want.  The Dad Card / the perfect Father's Day Gift - let him pull his Dad Card to have the final say with shows, meals, etc. on his special day / Make this quick and easy Father's Day craft with supplies on-hand! by BusyMomsHelper.com
  2. Glue your scrap cardstock/paper/etc. (I used an old paint color card) behind the frame so you have the centerpiece. Attach your handle (or cheap brush, whatever) and then add your text by writing it or using stickers. That’s it!

It’s easy for the kids to help – coloring the sticks, choosing the sticker/text, even helping with the gluing (with high supervision). Great affordable and EASY Father’s day gift from the kiddos!
