free printable fathers day cards for kids

Do you celebrate Father’s Day?  We don’t do gifts but we always have cards and a usually a nice family meal.  Every year I have the best intentions of making a card but it never happens.  This year though I decided I would be organised and make sure it happens.  So I made these little mustache cards – aren’t they cute?  I was so pleased with the way they turned out that I thought I would share them here.  If you still need a card, then these free printable Father’s Day cards are the answer.  You can print them and let the kids decorate them as they wish.

To make these cards, all you have to do is print out the PDF’s, fold along the line and cut them out.  Just make sure that you don’t cut all the way round – the tops shouldn’t be cut so that the back of the card remains attached.  I used pink, maroon and grey coloured card but you can choose whatever colours you like.  And if you’d like the kids to decorate them then lighter colours will of course be better.

I’ve attached two PDF’s of these Father’s Day cards – one where the mustaches have little messages printed on them and the second which are left blank for you to put your own message or just to decorate as you wish.  We’ve made so many of them and Anya can’t wait to get decorating.  Happy Father’s Day to all those great dad’s out there!



P.S. If you want some more fun free father’s day printables, here’s a round-up I did a little while ago.

I’m always so last minute when it comes to a Father’s Day card or organising something for the day.  So this year I thought I would try and get ahead of the game and have at least a fun card and something fun lined up well in advance of the day.  We’re not in to giving gifts or anything major but it is nice to do something to mark the day.  So I’m planning a family lunch and I also wanted to find a cute card for Anya to give Richard.  I would love to have created my own little DIY with her and may still do next week but in the meantime I went looking and I found these sweet free father’s day printables.  They’re not all cards but they can all be turned in to one or used in different ways.  I like them all but I suspect Anya will choose the glasses or the cute little bow and tie one!

"father and daughter moments ebabee"

Have you ever watched the movie ‘Father of the Bride’?  For those of you who haven’t it’s about a father who is struggling (in a humorous way) to come to terms with his baby girl growing up and getting married.  In our home, Richard has already made a few joking (i hope) comments about Anya not being allowed near boys till she’s at least 25!    But boys aside, fathers and daughters do have a very special relationship.  It’s a different bond from what mothers and daughters share.  As Fathers Day is on Sunday I wanted to share a few lovely yet unexpected differences in our relationship that I have noticed and wondered if you have noticed these too:

1.  The bonding time took much longer for Richard.  He loved Anya from the day she was born and probably before but he didn’t find it easy bonding with a baby.  And then 6 months in to her life, everything changed and the bond grew stronger and stronger from there on.

2. He notices lovely little things about her that I miss.  Little facial expressions, big new words she uses, if she’s grown a millimetre. Maybe because I spend a lot more time with her or maybe because he sees her differently than I do.

3.  He falls for her feminine wiles each and every time!  All children want to get their way.  Boys tend to be more straightforward asking for what they want whereas girls can be a bit more creative.  When Anya is plotting to get her way, I can see what she is up to from the start.  But Richard innocently falls for her ploys hook, line and sinker!  And the best part is that she knows this and takes full advantage.

4. He lovingly makes complex DIY things for her that she adores like dolls houses and magnetic fishing games.  Recently he made her a ride-on plane from a large cardboard box and when she tired of the plane and demanded a boat, he stayed up late in to the night to transform the plane in to a boat so she would wake up to it the next morning.

5.  Anya gets away with doing things to Richard that no other person on the planet could do.  Like putting frilly clips in his hair or even painting his nails!

Have you noticed any special little differences in the way you and your partner are with your daughter?  Or maybe this applies to sons too in a different way?  I’m really curious to hear.

A very happy Fathers day to all the wonderful dads out there! x
