So one of the first things my husband taught my kids was to high five. My son (age 1.5) calls it a “hi-fye” and he always has to high five both hands. If he is not done high fiving he will grab your hand and turn it over so he continue until he has decided he is done. This is what inspired the Give Me A High Five Father’s Day Card. The card is super simple to make and adorable to give to dad because when he opens it his kid’s hands will spring out of the card when it’s opened just like they are high fiving dad.

Give Me A High Five Handprint Father's Day Card: A fun and cute homemade card for kids to make for Dad and Grandpa. Hands pop-up to give dad a high five when he opens the card.

Supplies:
Construction paper
Pen/Markers
Acrylic paint
Paint samples (optional)
Pipe cleaners
Scissors
Tape

Directions:
1.  Fold construction paper to make a blank card large enough to conceal a hand print from each child in your family.

2.  Use acrylic paint and make one hand print for each child. Once they are dry cut them out. I liked to leave a border around the hand print so the color of the paint sample adds some color to the card. If you don’t have paint samples construction paper works great.

 

I LOVE using paint samples for hand prints because you can wash the paint off the paint sample if you need a do-over. Awesome tip, right? 🙂

3.   Write a message on the front of the card: “Just wanted to say…”

4.  Write a message on the inside of the card: “High five to the best dad ever!”

Ms. Tiger colored the inside of the card for daddy and grandpa.

5.  Make a spiral with a pipe cleaner so the hand will pop out of the card. It works best if each hand print has its own pipe cleaner.  Tape the end of the pipe cleaner to the backside of the hand print then attach it to the card. Make sure the hands are placed so they are hidden inside the card. The pipe cleaners are very giving so just bend them where they need to be and your done! 🙂

Add some hand drawn kid artwork to your card. Here are Ms. Tiger’s fireworks for daddy.

  1. Hi Katie!

    Thank you so much for making these designs available.

    My son and I had lots of fun making the High Five card. It looked amazing!

    We also made the Father’s Day keepsake book out of a paper bag. It looked fantastic, and my son’s dad was absolutely delighted with it!

    I would never have have come up with these two ideas on my own, and your directions were so clear to follow. Thank you.

    I feel inspired to try other crafts with my son in the future.
