No matter what your kids call their father, whether it be papa, daddy or plain old dad, I think we can all agree that dads are pretty cool. Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity for a cute and simple popsicle stick craft for your toddler or preschooler.
This “cool” Father’s Day card is not only really easy to make, it makes a fun summer activity for children to do on their own or with a bit of help from mom.

Father’s Day Popsicle Stick Craft
What you need
- Colored cardstock
- Sequins, gems or stickers (I used both but it was a bit hard for my 4 year old to glue the sequins)

- Glue stick
For the wording on the card, you can write whatever you like but here are some ideas to get you going:

- Fold your cardstock in half and cut along the middle so you have two pieces
- Mark about 3 inches of the way down on each side and cut from there to the top to create the curved top of the popsicle.
- Write your text with marker
- Let your preschooler go wild with sequins, gems and markers
- Glue or tape the popsicle stick to the back of the card stock
