Everyone loves at least some level of recognition. What better way to show someone that they are awesome than to give them a trophy.
Now making an actual trophy can be quite a project (although if you want to make a super easy one you can paint a paper or other cup in yellow or gold and transform it into a trophy), so we are showing you a simpler version that can be made by younger kids.
If making this one as a Father’s day craft for preschoolers, assistance with cutting will be needed, so it’s best if you prepare all the pieces and focus have the kids focus on decorating the card.
Most older kids (kindergarten +) should have sufficient scissor skills to make this card on their own.
Ready? Let’s make the Father’s Day Trophy Card
How to Make Father’s Day Trophy Card Tutorial
What you need:
- our template – grab it at the end of this tutorial
- construction paper (letter or A4 size) in trophy colors (golden yellow, orange or simillar)
- other colors for details
- optional: foam number 1
Follow the Step by Step Instructions
Print out our template on construction paper. We’ve chosen yellow for our trophy card.
Cut out all the pieces of the template.
Fold the trophy card along the dashed line.
Make sure the fold is super crisp – we make our folds crisp by running a craft stick across the fold – effective and inexpensive tool, especially if you are crafting in the classroom.
Cut along the full line to make the trophy shape. Do not cut the dashed line on top and on the bottom of the trophy.
Glue the handles on the trophy – you can glue them on the front or in the back of the card.
Take the circle shape. As you can see there are two circle shapes, one inside the other.
You can either color the larger circle (not coloring the smaller one within) or trace the large circle on construction paper in different color.
If you traced the circle, cut it out.
Now cut out the smaller circle from the template.
Glue the small circle inside the larger one.
Trace the rectangle on white paper (you can also leave it as is, or choose another color).
Cut out the rectangle.
Glue the rectangle on the bottom part of the trophy card.
Glue the circle o the top part of the trophy card.
If you have one, stick a foam sticker (or other sticker) inside the circle. Number one dad right?
Alternatively you can also write the number with a marker.
Who is the trophy award for? And what is it all about? Our trophy goes to the best dad, but you can get even more creative with your wording.
You can go even further with decorating the trophy. Add gemstones, ribbons, stickers…
Last but not least, add a personal message inside this fun Father’s day card.
