Printable Superhero Father's Day Card to make for Superdad

Use our free printable superhero Father's Day card template to help your child make the perfect handmade footprint card for their superdad this Father's Day! Whilst this superhero craft can be made by kids of any age this superhero dad card would make a perfect first fathers day card as it contains a precious footprint as well as the words 'You are my favourite Superhero'. Tiny baby footprints make this card adorable, but it would work well as a toddler or preschoolers Father's Day craft too. I love the addition of a photograph of dad!

Does your child have a real life superhero as a dad? If they do this printable superhero card is a perfect craft to make for Father's Day. Baby and toddler footprints will look so cute on this superhero keepsake card and older preschoolers can add details to turn their footprint into superdad by themselves. If you don't want to make a superhero from footprints you could colour one of our superhero colouring pages instead. 

We also have a set of superhero handprint coasters that would make a perfect handmade Father's day gift to go alongside the superhero dad card.

Superhero Father's Day Card

STEP 1 : Download the superhero card template

You will need to download and print out the superhero Father's Day card template using the link at the bottom of the page.

We have a few versions of the printable Superhero Father's day card. There is a card that says 'Daddy you are my favourite superhero' and a card that says 'Dad you are my favourite superhero'. We also have a version that simply says 'you are my favourite superhero' so that it can be given to anybody for any occassion. We have included the UK spelling of favourite on the cards as well as the US version, favorite. 

If you want the superhero badges that we used you can download them using the link on our superhero puppet craft

Step 2 : Make a footprint

Make sure that you have all your supplies ready before you start to take footprints from your baby, toddler or preschooler. You can use ink or paint to make your prints. I tend to prefer ink as it is a bit less messy!

For babies lay your baby flat and gently press their foot into the ink or paint and then onto the paper. Make sure you press each of their toes down so you are left with a good print. I like to have a packet of baby wipes handy so I can clean their little feet straight away before they start wriggling about and getting paint or ink everywhere! 

For toddlers or preschoolers you can either make the footprints by sitting on the floor and dipping your child's feet into paint and then onto the paper or you can ask them to stand in paint and then onto the printable. Some young children love having their feet actually painted too!

STEP 3 : Turn the footprint into Superdad!

This is the fun part! You can turn your child's footprint into a superhero anyway you choose. Adding a photograph of dad's head to the heel of the footprint is definitley a fun way of turning the footprint into superdad. I find this version with my husbands head stuck to it far more funny than I should, (he is a real superdad though!)

For this superhero card idea we simply stuck a photograph of dad onto the footprint, added a superhero logo and drew on a red superhero cape using a red sharpie. You can get the printable superhero labels using the link in our superhero puppet craft

Another idea that makes an equally cute Father's Day craft is to draw a face that looks like dad onto cardstock. For babies and younger toddlers an adult may have to do this step but having a preschooler draw dad's face would make this Father's Day card even more personal. 

We cute a circle out of flesh coloured cardstock and then added hair eyes and a mouth.  If you can match the skin and hair colour to dad's it will make this card really special. We decided to add an eye mask too! Then either draw on a superhero cape or cut a triangle out of red cardstock and glue it on. 

We added a logo to this superhero footprint craft too as I think it really makes the footprint craft look like superdad!
