If you enjoy this printable, you’ll probably like this Father’s Day tackle box idea too!
With Father’s Day around the corner, here’s an easy and ever-so-simple Father’s Day card idea he will absolutely love and perhaps even tear up a bit upon receipt.
Anything that uses handprints or fingerprints wins over my heart.
This “Best Dad Hands Down” card is a winner!
My Kids are Older. Can I Still Use the “Best Dad Hands Down” Card?
Yes! My youngest is 9, and it gripped my heart to acknowledge her hands aren’t as itty bitty anymore. Our kids grow way too fast!
If you’re like me and have older kids, use the 1st page in the “Best Dad Hands Down” printable. This will be more of a certificate or can be popped into a frame, or glued onto chart paper, and folded to make a card.
If you have a baby, use page 2 of the printable, as their hands are much tinier and will fit in the space provided on the face of the card after the same is folded.
Love the Idea of the Handprints but want to Do More?
You know my love for wiggly eyes, right?
Add a pair of wiggly eyes to each hand and smiles, and your card will look super cute!
Can you think of other fun ways to jazz up your child’s handprints?

How should my child place their hands?
In line with the card, you would need to place your child’s handprints on the card inverted.
If your child is older and if you’re able to get your child to place both hands on the card at the same time, try and have them position the hands with the thumbs touching and the two index fingers touching each other. This helps form a heart shape in the gap between the fingers.
Can you see it?
Can this idea be done on Canvas too?
This beautiful keepsake idea can definitely be done on canvas too.
