Dads are hard, right? I know I’m not the only one who struggles with trying to come up with something meaningful and desirable to give the Dads. We ended up making Father’s Day Painted Cards & Tape Collage Bookmarks.
The kids painted “DAD” cards with liquid watercolors. They were given a variety of colors and they all turned out great. Download a copy of the DAD card printable here. (The lettering is slightly different than pictured.)
Father’s Day Painted Cards & Tape Collage Bookmarks
Our bookmarks are made using adding machine tape paper – although any paper can be used of course. There’s a story about that – a friend who was visiting made her own projects using the roll of paper and colored masking tape that’s out in our writing center & I loved the idea! To personalize them, I took pictures of each child with Instagram for the back. Originally I thought a strip off three or four pictures of each child would be fun but it’s hard enough to get one picture of each child! After gluing it all to cardstock I laminated them, punched a hole in the top & added ribbon.
Hope all the Dads have a great Father’s Day!
