Supplies To Collect
This whole craft can be made in construction paper and/or painted paper, but will look extra special with the following supplies:
- 12-inch x 12-inch dark blue or black construction paper
- pompoms in various colors
- cardstock in white and shades of yellow
- white glitter cardstock
- gold glitter cardstock
- star paper punch
- white glue
- glue stick
- double-sided tape
- black felt pen
Preparing The Craft
First, cut a spaceship from white iridescent cardstock, and “steam” from gold glitter cardstock. Glue together.
Next, with a star paper punch, punch stars from white and yellow cardstock.
Then gather a selection of pompoms in various colors and sizes to represent planets in our solar system.
Add double-sided tape to the back of the spaceship. This will give it a raised look on the craft, helping it stand out.
Finally, write a Father’s Day greeting and the words “You help me soar” with a black felt pen on strips of white cardstock, or use computer-printed messages.
Making The Space Father’s Day Craft
Invite your child to adhere the spaceship to a sheet of dark blue or black 12-inch square cardstock. This size paper gives a nice large canvas to work on.
Add glue to a small food container lid or paper plate. Have your child dip their pompom planets in glue and stick them around the spacecraft on the paper. Your child will love the chance to use soft, fluffy pompoms.
Ask your child to adhere punched stars in the sky with a glue stick.
Glue the Father’s Day greetings to the picture where there is space to do so.
This colorful, easy craft can be made for a father or a father figure for Father’s Day. Or it can be adapted to give to a special person any time of the year.
