Father's Day card idea

Weather inspired card

For a few weeks we have been basking in sunshine so when we had a much needed rainy day I decided we would use inspiration from the sun we have seen so much of lately to make a Father's Day card - and you have a week to make it so no excuse!

At age 2 M loved doing this and it is the first real time that I have let her loose with glue and given her scissors to have a proper play with (supervised and she has had goes with them at toddlers but only briefly).


  • Blue crayons/pens
  • yellow crayons/pens
  • yellow straw
  • glue
  • scissons
  • card
  • paper


I started by getting M to use a few different yellow crayons and pens to colour in a bit of paper. Once she was happy with that she had done I cut a circle from the paper to make the main part of the sun.

Next I folded a bit of card in half and got her to use a variety of blue crayons to colour in the front of the card for the sky.

Once finished she was let loose with the glue to glue the sun onto the sky.

I then (with help) cut a straw into nine, as close to, equal parts for the sun's rays and again M got full control of the glue to coat the straw and stick it to the card.

I then (rather badly but you get the jist) wrote the message on it. I was just going to put you are my sunshine on it but M was determined that I added daddy on it too.
