Easy Handprint Magnet Father’s Day Craft
I love how simple these DIY magnets where to make. Plus, we had everything we needed in our activity supply closet.
To make your own handprint magnet, you’ll need:
- foam sheets
- magnetic sheets
- pen and markers

First, I let my kids pick out their favorite color foam sheets. Pink and blue for the win!
I traced each child’s hand on the foam. Then we cut out the handprints.
The magnetic sheets we purchased had a sticky side. I let my kids carefully peel off the backing, then press the foam handprint onto the sticky magnetic sheet.
If you can’t find magnetic sheets with a sticky backing, you can use some craft glue to stick the handprints to the magnet.
Make even more simple decorative magnets.
While the kids took a quick lap around the kitchen to get their wiggles out, I cut out around the handprint shapes. This left us with foam on one side and magnet on the other.
We slapped the handprints on the fridge to make sure they’d stick.
Then, we headed back to the kitchen table to decorate!
Your kids will also enjoy making these cute Father’s Day crafts!
For Father’s Day, I wrote out a simple message with a permanent marker. Regular markers sometimes don’t work well on foam. I like to have a permanent marker on hand, just in case.
You could also kick your handprint magnets up a notch with glitter, sequins, or other decorations. But we decided to keep it simple for Dad.
I love how these handprint magnets for Father’s Day turned out! These would be so cute wrapped up with a few photo prints and a new coffee mug for work.
