Father’s Day is coming up soon, which means now is a great time to come up with some card and craft ideas to show that special guy just how much he’s appreciated. And our Whaley Love You Father’s Day Cards are a whale of a good idea!
These Whaley Love You Father’s Day Cards come with a free whale printable template, so there’s no guesswork involved. Simply download and print the free whale template. Then, trace the whale shape onto the felt and cut your pieces form a heart-happy whale.
Along with pieces of dark blue, light blue, and teal felt, you’ll also need white cardstock, googly eyes, glue, scissors, a pencil and black marker, as well as a light blue crayon. On the white cardstock that you’ll adhere your whale to, you can begin by printing out an I Love You message to go around. Or, wait until you’re done and let the kids write their own.

Use a black marker to create a blowhole on top of your whale and then glue your light blue water spray coming out of the blowhole. Glue a google eye onto your whale’s face and use a black marker to create expression above the eye. Use the light blue crayon to create water drops from the spray coming from the blowhole.
