The school year is ending and I’m pretty sure this is my last project of the year. I may do one in the summer, not sure about that yet. It’s Father’s Day so I had to do a card for the dads. For Mother’s day I did a quick & easy card that said:
Mom you are oFISHally … the best.
The kids colored two fish, one to represent their mom and one to represent them. I grabbed some blue construction paper, glued them on, and voila. Really quick & easy, but super cute. For Father’s Day, I was having trouble finding ideas and with 16 students, it had to be something cheap and of course, quick & easy.
I went and searched Google & Pinterest and I decided on the Superhero Fathers day Card that reads:
I copied the similar design, but instead of writing out the names of each superhero, I used a picture of each. So for this project, all you’ll need is:
- construction paper
- printed pictures of each superhero
- glue / markers
Now here’s where the time consuming part came in. Cutting out each superhero took some time, but thankfully I have amazingly helpful co-workers. Also I cut construction paper into blocks to create the similar design, but that’s really optional. You could keep it simple with just a piece of construction paper. I’m glad I took the time to cut it though.
This is by far one of my favorite projects and the kids loved it as well since they’re all about the superhero characters. Some were looking for Captain America and Thor, but hey, I just went with the first I found on Pinterest. I didn’t have grey construction paper, so I just used orange. Again you could keep it simple with just one solid color for the whole card.
If you really want to be cheesy with this project you could take a picture of their dad and use it as the face of each character. Talk about an easy, yet hilarious, photoshop. Working with 3-6 year olds, printing the pictures was the best option because they’re visual learners. The 4 & 5 year olds wrote out their cards, but with the pictures even the 3 year olds knew what this was. I usually have to bribe them to do a project, but they were so excited for their turn with this one.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
