DIY Father’s Day Card: You’re An Un-BEE-Lievable Daddy
Father’s Day will be here before we know it. I always think I have so much time to make an adorable craft with Bella for her dad and pick up a small gift then BAM, I’m rushing around last-minute. This year I vow to be proactive, at the very least I’ll get the craft part of his gift done in advance. The gift part I can probably slack off on a bit. I normally buy something off Amazon and I have a Prime membership, hello FREE 2-day shipping!
Today I’m sharing this adorable DIY bee Father’s Day card. It’s a perfect craft for the older kids to do on their own. If you have a toddler like me, you will need to assist them in making this card for their dad. If you like having options go check out the You’re An EGGcellent Daddy! DIY Father’s Day Card. You can decide which one you like best and want to make. If you have more than one child you can make both, allowing each child to have a special card for their dad.
There is something extra special about handmade cards. Maybe it is the time spent making it, or the extra thought you put into your special personalized message that makes these types of cards cherished for years to come.
Even if you are not a crafty person you can totally pull off this DIY. At the end of this post is a link to print not only the card, but the bee that you will cut out to use as a stencil to make the adorable bee.
