We’ve recently discovered that one of our favorite ways to celebrate Mother’s Day or Father’s Day is by making a homemade card.

And what’s sweeter than handprint arts and crafts for kids

There’s nothing more sentimental to Mom and Dad then a DIY card made from their child’s hands, so we knew these minion cards would steal the show! 

Today we’re showing you how simple it is to make these cards at home or in the classroom with your children.

Father's Day Card Craft For Kids | Make this easy DIY minion card craft for Dad this Father's Day. It's a cute handprint idea Dad will treasure for years! #fathersday #fathersdaycrafts #fathersdaycards #handprintcrafts #handprintart #minion #minioncrafts #toddlers #preschoolers #kidsdiy #easykidscrafts #homemadecards

Directions

Fold a piece of yellow card stock in half with the fold line on the left side. Trace your child’s left hand on the paper, with the pinky along the fold line. Cut the handprint out, leaving the fold line in tact along the pinky.

Use the 1.5″ and .25″ punch to cut out two circles from the black card stock. Use the 1″ circle punch to cut out one circle from the white card stock. 

Using the scissors or a paper trimmer, cut out two rectangles about .5″ wide and as long as you need to extend to the outside of your child’s handprint (mine were each about 1.5″ long).

Glue the .25″ black circle to the middle of the 1″ white circle, then glue both to the middle of the 1.5″ black circle. This will be the minion’s eye. 

Glue the black rectangles behind the minion eye to create the goggles. Center the entire eye and goggle piece just below the fingers on your child’s handprint and glue in place. If it extends between the fingers, use scissors to trim the excess.

Cut out a square from the bright blue paper that’s large enough to cover the bottom of your child’s handprint. Glue to the bottom of the handprint, then cut the excess off. 

Cut two long and skinny rectangles from the bright blue paper to serve as the minion’s overall straps. Position them on an angle to the bottom of the handprint and glue into place. Cut off the excess that extends off the handprint. Use the black marker to draw on the overall snaps. 

Using the .5″ circle punch, cut out a circle from the light blue paper. Use the scissors to cut off the top quarter of the circle. Glue this piece in the middle of the overalls. 

Use the black marker to draw a mouth on the minion.

The directions sound a little involved, but once you see the video of this handprint craft, you realize it’s a simple craft. 

It’s especially easy if you have circle punches, but don’t let that discourage you if you don’t own any. You can also cut the circles out by hand.

Another option is to use a large googly eye instead. Then you have less circles to cut out and it’s now a cute 3D card!

I don't see where to request or download this template for the Father's Day minion card.

Because every child's hand size is different, we couldn't make one for this craft, but the directions walk you through how to do it!
