Donuts for Dad Father’s Day Cards

Father’s Day is coming up and that means making something cute and thoughtful for all Dads and father figures out there. Last year my preschool class made donut Father’s Day cards and they turned out adorable. They were a big hit at the “Donuts with Dad” breakfast.

I made a few donut cards to show you how to create them. This is a quick craft and can be personalized in lots of ways. Small kids will definitely need help with cutting and assembly but older children will be able to make them independently.


  • Card-stock in beige and brown and assorted colors for icing and sprinkles
  • printable template
  • scissors and glue
  • pencil
  • photos of the child, small enough to fit in the donut hole
  • optional for decor: markers, glitter, stickers, paint or whatever else you can think of
  1. Print and cut out the templates.
  2. Trace the donut front, back, and icing templates on card-stock and cut them out.

3. Take your photo and trim the edges. You want it to be larger than the donut hole though. Glue the picture onto the backside of the top layer so the photo is seen in the hole.

4. Next glue the icing on top, then the back layer of the donut in place. If front and back don’t align perfectly just trim the edges a bit to make it look even.

5. Decorate your donut. I chose paper sprinkles for this one.

6. Turn your craft over and write a message for Dad on the back. For a baby it could be a handprint, older kids can draw or write a personal note.
