Here are some craft and cards ideas you might like to make to celebrate Fathers' Day.

We would love to see them on our so ask a grown-up in your family to take pictures of your creation and put them om our Facebook or Twitter pages.



Have a go at drawing a portrait of your dad. You can frame his portrait or use either on the front or inside your card.

Remember to first gently draw the lines and parts of the face with just a normal pencil, which will make it easier and cleaner to rub off what you don't need or don't like later. Then, when you are happy with your portrait go over the final lines harder. 

You can finish your portrait at this stage, so it almost looks like a black and white photograph, or you can colour it in. Experiment with your colouring pencils to get the colour and shade closest to the one you need by gently drawing one colour on top of another (like we did when we drew the portraits of Samuel Pepys and of our mums).

Origami Fathers' Day Crafts

Origami is the art of paper-folding. Its name derives from Japanese words ori (“folding”) and kami (“paper”). Traditional origami consists of folding a single sheet of paper, usually a square, (often with a colored side) into a sculpture without cutting, gluing, taping, or even marking it.

The trick is to make sharp folds (you can use your nail or the blunt side of scissors) and be persistent and resilient, ask a grown-up for help, if needed.

If you don't have coloured paper, use any and just colour it or draw what you want on the finished models.
