Add some adorable handprint fish to this homemade card template and Dad will be o-fish-ally happy this coming Father’s Day! Children can make this craft on their own or with a little help from Mom or Grandma. Don’t forget Grandpa likes fishing too and will certainly want a card from his favorite grandchildren.

Let your kid’s craft along with Little Tiger (age 6) as she takes them step by step through creating this craft in the video below. They will love being able to complete it on their own or you can keep reading to find the directions.
Cover child’s hand with paint and make handprints. Set them aside to dry. When they are finished drying cut them out and decorate them using the pen to look like a fish.
Fold the blue paper in half and then cut out a pond.
Print out the background template on any color paper. Glue the pond to the bottom of the paper.
Glue the shapes together to make the fishing rod. (Don’t glue the heart yet.)
Glue string to the fishing rod attaching it to the circle, the middle of the rod, and the end of the rod to look like fishing line. Let some string hang down from the end of the rod.
Glue the heart to the end of the string.
Glue the fish handprints on. (This is when the card turns into a keepsake–isn’t it so cute!) Let the craft dry and then it’s ready for Dad!
