After we made our superhero Mother’s Day Gift last month I knew right away we’d have to revisit the idea for Father’s Day. After all, Dad’s have some mega super powers just like Mom’s do, don’t you think?! This Super Dad Father’s Day Gift idea is going to make Dad feel super special on Father’s Day.
We’ve included a message that kids can personalize on the back of the Father’s Day gift so they can share what they feel makes their Dad extra SUPER.
Here at I Heart Crafty Things we understand that everyone household circumstance is unique and different so we have tried to make a template option that works for everyone for Father’s Day.
You’ll find when you open and download the template there is an option for Dad, Grandpa, Uncle, Super Hero and Super Man. We hope this is super helpful if you are creating this craft with a large group of children.

Instructions to make Super Dad Gift Idea:
Step 1: Begin by downloading and printing out the Super Dad Father’s Day gift template.
You can either print this all out on white paper and have children color in all of the pieces on their own. Or you can print out the Super Dad capes on colored cardstock and the face template on a skin tone colored cardstock.
We printed on colored cardstock at home but in a group setting where ethnic traits may vary, it would be beneficial to go with printing the faces with white cardstock so the children can color in the skin tone how they choose.
Step 2: Cut out all of the pieces of the template. Use your markers (or crayons) to color in the the Super Dad badge and the Super Dad face. On some of our examples we used yarn for hair. This is optional.
Step 3: Personalize the Father’s Day gift label by completing the sentence with something “super” your Dad does using markers.

Step 4: Lay the Hershey’s chocolate bar on top of the superhero cape, aligning the chocolate bar with the bottom of the cape. Fold down the top corners and make creases along the cape to form the cape around the chocolate bar.
Add tape to the superhero cape and lay your chocolate bar down onto it.
Step 5: Add a piece of tape at the bottom of the chocolate bar and at the top of the chocolate bar and attach the Super Dad badge and the face to the tape.
Step 6: Use a glue stick (or tape) to attach the Super Dad Father’s Day gift tag to the back of the superhero cape.
