This simple and sweet Father’s Day Heart Dad Fingerprint Craft is sure to be a wonderful keepsake for dad for years to come! And we have the base Free Printable Dad Template, so all you need to do is add heart and fingerprints!
For the littler ones, you can add some masking doubled up under the edges so the heart stays in place. Then, it’s such an easy keepsake that however it turns out after that, dad is sure to love it!
We’ve done some really fun Father’s Day crafts. I still love this Paper Bag Dad Craft. It’s one of my personal favorites. We also have a lot of other great ideas, too, like our Super Dad Card, I Whaley Love You Father’s Day Card, and these super fun Fork Painted Lions for Father’s Day.
To make our Father’s Day Heart Dad Fingerprint Craft you will first need our Dad Template. This is the base of the craft. It’s made transparent so you can print on any color cardstock, but we used silver cardstock. Then, pick some acrylic paints, white paper, and scissors.
Heart Dad Fingerprint Craft
- Dad Template
- Acrylic paint – blues, yellow, white, red, etc.
- Silver cardstock
- White paper
Begin by printing out the Dad Template.
Now cut out a large heart from a full sheet of white paper. It should mostly fill the page, though you will need room around the heart for fingerprints.
Position the heart centered over the word DAD. I used where the heart was folded and the A of DAD to help center. Try not to move the heart from this point, or apply masking tape along the edges to help stay in place.
Gather your paint and pour some in a tray or paper plate. Dip the tip of your finger in a color and begin forming fingerprints along the heart. Make sure the edges of the heart are completely covered.
Add more colors.
When finished, carefully peel the heart off the page.
Do you think Dad will love it? I think Dad will love it! And, be sure to find more of our Father’s Day crafts at Our Kid Things!
