Sharing is caring!

Let your hero know that he’s a superhero – with an Easy and Fun Super Dad Puppet! This is the perfect Father’s Day Craft for Kids of all ages.

During the pandemic, there was a story of a Dad, whose kids were upset about not being able to go back to school. So he sent them out with their school bags, and then opened the door and welcomed them as if they were coming to class. He took great pains to make the kids feel good, and he has created a memory they’ll treasure forever!

Dads do so much for us, don’t they? They’re the ones who always have our backs, and protect us against everything -sometimes even from Mom! Yes, there’s no doubt about it – Dads truly are superheroes!

However, somehow, the attention tends to go towards Moms, especially when the baby is born. Flowers arrive for the Mom, everyone hovers around her and brings gifts and treats. Poor Dad gets relegated to the background, although he’s working very hard too, even if it’s behind the scenes!

So today, we’re going to let Dad know how much he means to us – with an easy and fun Super Dad puppet! It’s a cute, customizable craft that can be changed to suit Dads of all shapes and sizes. You can also customize the outfit, adding checks or stripes, if that’s what the Dad in your home prefers!
