Get ready for dad and grandpa’s heart to melt when you give them this adorable robot Father’s Day card. Grab our easy template in our shop and follow along this post as we show you how to make a paper robot craft. This simple paper card idea is super easy for preschoolers and kids of all ages to create.
Robots are such a cute theme for crafting any time of the year. We designed this fun robot craft around Father’s Day but the adorable message on the inside of the card could be used for Mother’s Day, Grandparent’s Day or for giving to any one you love all year long.
We have two different options for making this adorable robot card. In the first option the outside of the paper robot says “Beep Bloop…Do you know who love you?” in a robot text and a photo of a child is glued on the inside of the card for a special surprise for Dad or grandpa. The added photo definitely makes the paper robot a keepsake to treasure forever.
The second robot card option says “Beep, Bloop Beep…” on the outside of the card. Inside the cute saying is finished with “Means I love you in Robot.” Either option is sure to make the recipient’s heart melt!
