Lion Fathers Day Card

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft Ideas for Kids | Lion Fathers Day Card for Kids to make for their Dads, with a free template included.

This super cute printable Lion Fathers Day Card is great fun for kids to cut, stick and assemble; creating a sweet card that will make Daddy weak at the knees! The simplicity of the printable design works well for small children who are refining their scissor skills and the extra large nose is purposely big to allow for any potential error as kids’ navigate their way around the smaller shape.

This Lion Father’s Day Card forms part of a growing collection of DIY Printable Cards, which also includes “I love your True Colours Rainbow Card” and a panda and cat adaption of the lion.

The cat adaption can be found in our exclusive member’s area where you can also download:
