Father's Day Whale Card Craft Kids craft


These Father’s Day cards are super easy to put together, thanks to the free printable templates found at the end of this post, and they look great when completed.  Plus, they’re completely customizable! Change up the colors, get creative with it, and add your own personal message to your card.


And while we created these cards for Father’s Day, you can use the printable template to create your own whale card for a variety of events and activities. Whether it be thank you cards, get better soon, Mother’s Day, birthdays, teacher appreciation, or just because!


Since you can use these cards for a variety of occasions, it’s a good idea to make extras to have on hand.  Just gather up a few simple supplies to recreate these adorable cards.



To get started, you’ll need:

    1. Colored craft papers
    2. Craft glue
    3. Sharpie or marker pen
    4. Pencil
    5. Scissors
    6. Printable template (found below)


After gathering up all of your supplies, print out your template on regular printer paper. Carefully cut out your template pieces.


Chose your whale and card colors, pulling out the colored papers you want to use.  Trace the template patterns on the selected papers and carefully cut out each piece. Fold the card piece in half.



Grab the water splash pattern and glue it to the top back of your whale’s head, as shown below.



Next, attach the semi-circular patter to the bottom of the whale, creating his stomach. Align the straight sides together as shown below.



Now you can glue your paper whale onto your prepared card.  Allow it to dry while you grab a black sharpie or marker.  Using your marker, add a mouth and eyes to your whale.  You can copy the facial pattern we drew or get creative and draw your own face design on your whale.  Have fun with it!



When your face is done, add the quote “I Whaley Love You,” “You’re Whaley a Great Dad,” or any other fun whale puns or quotes you can think of. 


For example, if you’re using this card to give to a sick friend you could write “I Whaley hope you feel better soon.”  For a teacher appreciation gift you could write “I Whaley loved having you as a teacher.” And so on.

If you want, you can also use colored markers, crayons, or colored pencils to add in the whale’s scene.  You can add blue waves, like we did, or anything else you can think of.

When you’re done with the front of the card, open it up and add in your own personal message, your favorite Father’s Day themed quote, or draw a picture for Dad. 


And, again, be sure to make extras! Hand them out to Grandpas or uncles for Father’s Day or keep blank ones on hand for the next time you need a card and don’t want to run to the store.
