Hi, I’m Amanda! I blog over at Artsy Momma and Fun Handprint Art where I share DIY crafts, hands-on fun for kids, and all kinds of handprint crafts. I’m excited to be guest posting over here today! Since we love handprint art and holiday crafts, I thought I’d share a cute Father’s Day craft that kids can make together with their dad or by themselves to give as a gift.
Recently I made a free printable Father’s Day craft for another blog buddy where we collaborated together to come up with a cute saying: Someday I Hope to be Big & Strong like Daddy. Her son always says how he wants to be big and strong like his dad…. too cute! My little man wanted to make one too so upon her suggestion; I made a vertical printable like the one you see here. Be sure to head over to check out the one that she made which is a somewhat different version. She also shares a unique way that she made the prints with her son who doesn’t particular care for messy crafts. It is also in different colors with the layout being horizontal instead.
On to the craft……
First, head over here to get the free printable Someday I Hope to be Big & Strong like Daddy template. Choose 2 colors of paint for the handprints. Have the Dad use the lighter of the 2 colors to make a handprint in the center of the page. Uses the darker color to have the child make a handprint to place on top of that one. Don’t forget to add the date and/or the child’s age!
I love that it makes a sweet Daddy & Me keepsake that will be cherished for many years and is so fitting for my little guy who likes to pretend to have muscles like his papa.

Oh, this version is neat! Love how you changed it up to include Dad's hand… what a great alternative take on the activity we did 🙂
I love this version from Fun Handprint Art too. She did a great job capturing the size difference between the two hand prints.
