When was the last time you decorated for Father’s Day? Never? Yeah, me neither.
This year we made a card for my husband that would double as decor for Father’s Day.
My daughter loves that it isn’t a normal folded card, and I love that it will give a festive touch to our Father’s Day celebration.
To make your own Father’s Day banner, you will need:
- 15 paint chips or pieces of colored cardstock – whichever you have on hand
- string or twine
- a small hole punch (not pictured)
- an envelope
Begin by freehand cutting out the letters to spell Happy Father’s Day. This is so much easier than it seems! If your kids are a little older, they can do this step themselves.
Once all of the letters are cut out, have your kids put them in order. You could just do this yourself, but I try to squeeze in learning opportunities any chance I get.
We went with a rainbow theme (my daughter is currently obsessed with anything rainbow!) which helped her to put the letters in order.
Punch 2 holes in the top of each letter (only 1 on the A).
Make sure to save the little holes to use as confetti.
Then string each letter onto a piece of string or twine.
For even more help keeping the kids busy this summer, don’t forget…
