Fish Handprint Craft

This fish handprint craft is cute to make for Father’s Day! We love that these are made from your child’s handprint too. And how about the saying “Hooked on Daddy”? This would make such a perfect gift for the fishing father in your family. Or even if the dad doesn’t like to fish, it’s still an adorable Father’s Day card idea.

The best part about this craft is that it has an adorable keepsake of your child’s handprint. These would make perfect cards to make in preschool or a daycare for Father’s Day.

There is a really cute poem you can add to it also (print off and add an insert card or hand write it and include inside the card):

This is a catch you’ll want to treasure,
My love for you has no measure
I made this from my hand to say,
I hope you have a Happy Father’s Day!
