As Father’s Day approaches, finding a meaningful way on this special day to honour the special dad or dads in your life becomes a top priority.

We love the idea of homemade gifts on KiddyCharts, so for this Father’s Day, we are offering a delightful collection of happy fathers day printable cards that not only allow kids to get creative, but also foster precious family bonding time.

Crafting homemade cards is an engaging and educational activity that encourages children to tap into their creativity and fine motor skills. As little hands color, cut, and assemble the homemade card or cards, they develop essential skills like hand-eye coordination, dexterity, and spatial awareness. Furthermore, the process of creating something tangible instills a sense of accomplishment and boosts self-confidence.

Beyond the practical skills, making a simple card for Father’s Day also provides an opportunity for children to express their emotions and thoughts in a meaningful way. By writing heartfelt messages or drawing special memories, kids can communicate their love and appreciation for their dads in a unique and personal manner.

Fostering family connection

The act of creating happy fathers day printable cards together can be a cherished family experience – it is lovely for a parent to receive that sentimental card from their children. As parents guide their children through the process, it opens the door for quality time, shared laughter, and conversation. These moments not only strengthen the parent-child bond, but also create lasting memories that will be treasured for years to come.

KiddyCharts’ collection of printable cards caters to a variety of interests and skill levels, ensuring that every child can find a design that resonates with them. From the whimsical fishing bears card to the vibrant Hawaiian shirt design, each card offers a delightful canvas for self-expression and creativity.

Inclusive designs for all families

One of the standout features of KiddyCharts’ Happy Father’s Day card collection is its inclusive approach, recognising the diverse family structures that exist today. The “hearts” card, designed to be printed double-sided, is a heartwarming choice for families with two dads. By providing an option that celebrates and embraces this family dynamic, we hope to foster an environment of acceptance and inclusivity.

The lasting impact of handmade gifts

Handmade gifts, like these happy fathers day printable cards, carry a special significance. They represent the time, effort, and love poured into their creation; from the sweet message that younger kids may have thought of to the funny Father’s Day card that you might get from older / teen children. For dads, receiving a card made by their child’s own hands is a priceless treasure, a tangible reminder of their unbreakable bond and the precious moments they’ve shared.

Not only will you create a cherished keepsake for dad, but you’ll also embark on a journey filled with laughter, learning, and lasting memories. Celebrate the special dads in your life with a lasting gift.

What do the printable Father’s Day cards look like?

The pack of Father’s Day card template ideas includes a cover sheet to color in, as well as a set of instructions for the four different designs that we have for you. We think there is enough her to create a unique card for your dear old Dad. Hopefully all the designs cover the things that your children like to do with the Dad(s). We got ideas for a cute card, you can personalise with different colors, to a few funny card ideas too. Print these out on card stock for a more professional touch of course.

Our first two greeting cards are focused on fishing-inspired stationery, and then the famous Dad shirt – of the Hawaiian variety – that classic dad jokes stable 😂. Print them both out, and then color them in for a personalised touch for the special man in your life. We think adding these cards to any little gifts ideas could be the perfect Father’s Day gift for you and your little kids.

Remember that these don’t have to be for Dad, they can also be for anyone that you feel has supported, and cared for you over the years. From a Dad to a best friend.

The Hawaiian shirt in particular can be adapted for use for anybody – pop in a heartfelt dad quote to show a little more Dad love. This shirt offers a blank Father’s Day card so you can add your sweetest hidden messages in the main body of the card.

Our next two cards offer the simple, and the inclusive cards within the sets, with a special DADS crown for those families with two dads in them. Print out and color in for loads of fun with the family, whatever that family looks like. Make your very own super dad smile with our cards.

Our last three designs are focused on Dad himself, particularly if you Dad is known as a grill master Dad in the household. Something that we know that Dads can enjoy doing for their families. We hope that these are perfect for you and your family to color and add to for having fun with.
