How To Make Your Father’s Day Monster Card Craft

Step 1 – Begin by printing out your Monster card Card Template – Click to Print.

Please note that when you open up this PDF it will contain all the templates you need. Just right-click, and select the page option you want to be printed first.

Print On:

White cardstock –  ‘head with print & mouths’

Red cardstock – ‘head without print”

Blue cardstock – horns, ears & antenna’ (or print horns on orange as pictured below)

Step 2 –  It is time to do some cutting. Depending on the age of your child, they may need to lend a helping hand. 

Let your child pick out their favorite mouth, horn, ears, or antenna of choice. The size of the head and inside printed labeling will all be the same. 

HEY! If you have more than one child, there are plenty of options. No two will be alike unless this is what they both want.

Putting it together is so fun!

It may get a little confusing if doing both at the same time and in different colors. I do hope my little notes will make it easier to understand. It is quite simple once everything is printed first in the colors listed above.

Step 3 – Now that every piece has been cut out, it is now time to put your Monster together.

Start by gluing the inside print head to the red cardstock head. Fold the headpiece in half so the inside is white, and the outside is red.

If using a glue stick, you can move on to the next step quite quickly. If using school clue, you will need to wait until the inside is completely dry.

Otherwise, your card will be glued shut. That may cause a few tears in the process. This we all want to avoid.

Gluing Antenna on card

Step 4 – Glue on the mouth, ears, antenna, and horns onto the back or front of the card, whichever you prefer.

Warning, Don’t look NOW – MONSTER BELOW

Step 5 – This is the step in which your Monster card comes to life. The really scary cool part.

Now it is time to attach a pompom or a few together for the nose & google eyes. Let your kids make their monster cards on their own. 

If you have extra horns, antennae, and ears from previously printed pages, they can create a monster with many horns or ears. You’re all done! Dad will treasure this Father’s Day Monster Card Craft card because it was made with love!

I am going with the idea that this card is just stinking cute. I will let you all decide.
