The Cutest Fathers Day Card Ever!

I pinned this idea this morning and could not wait to make my own.  Here is the picture from Pinterest:

Here is a link to the original from A Day in My Life.

And here is how we made our own;
Step 1 - Have the kids pick out 2 colors they want to work with:

Step 2 - Have them choose the color for their hands, trace the hand (only one and then fold paper in half) and cut hands out.

Step 3 - fan the other sheet of paper and cut off a square.

 Step 4 - on the strip have the kids write "This Much"(or if your 5 year old gets angry because he wrote one letter incorrectly and throws the paper and crayon - you can write it)

Step 5 - Have the kids (or you) write "Daddy I Love You" on one hand

Last step - glue strip to inside of hands and let dry.


  1. This is super adorable and wish I had the idea earlier (working at a preschool and didn't have as great an idea). Keeping fingers crossed i remember this for a whole year. Thanks

  2. Aww that is super cute! Kind of makes me wish I had kids just so that we'd have an excuse to make these.

  3. Love your hand print cards with the accordion fold going on between them!! CUTE idea!!

  4. These are very cute! I may have to make one from my 20 month old to daddy. Thanks!
    I'm stopping by from the Serenity Now Party & would LOVE for you to link up to my party too! Also check out my giveaway going on until tomorrow night if you have time.
