The Story of His Life

Timepieces like this creative fill-it-out yourself booklet designed by Hello, Wonderful are what memories are made of.

Spell It Out

Surprise Dad when he walks through the door on his special day with this colorful card that doubles as a banner. Let him slowly pull out the greeting, like a magician pulling an endless string of hankies from his sleeve. Then hang it across the mantle, so Dad really gets the message. Skip over to Modern Parents Messy Kids for the tutorial.

Color Me Dad

This coloring superhero card by Alpha Mom is an easy-breezy option that ranks high on cuteness factor—the best combo if we do say so ourselves. The kids can customize the fill in the blank section to make it their very own. Head over to Alpha Mom to download your card now.

This printable card from Julep is ready for him to spin the wheel of wish lists and decide just what he wants most for Father’s Day. Card AND gift completed.

Happy Hero Day

Let your little one decide what to fill it with. And find the free printable at Tatertots and Jello.

Spiffy Sayings

This bow-tie card is a keeper, especially when you take a photo of your little one holding it and turn it into a gift or (even better!) dad’s new screen saver. The template and tutorial are available at Julep. This a perfect DIY card for the three and under set—easy-peasy—just the way we like it!
