Make This Kid-Friendly Craft for Father’s Day

Make This Kid-Friendly Craft for Father's Day |

I have a dad who absolutely loves to read! Ever since I was little, one of his favorite pastimes was to enjoy a salty snack with a book in his hand.

Another interesting fact about my dad: he’s always bought himself everything he’s ever wanted. And since he’s a man of simple needs, he’s very difficult to buy gifts for! But what he does always appreciate is a gift that’s handmade and from the heart.

I am excited to share these Duct Tape Corner Bookmarks using some very manly patterns: woodgrain and plaid. Learn how to make them below. They’re very easy and very inexpensive!

Kid-Friendly Craft: Duct Tape Corner Bookmarks


  • Duct Tape – colors and patterns of your choice
  • Cardstock
  • Craft knife and mat
  • Scissors


1. Cut two squares that are 2.5” from your cardstock.

4. Cut another piece of duct tape and turn over so the sticky side is facing up. Place the half square as shown on the left below and fold 1/16 inch on the bottom up. Trim the edges straight up (perpendicular to the corners. Tape the half triangle to the full triangle as shown on the right.

    Father’s day is just around the corner, and I know your crafty kids are going to want to make something fabulous to give Dad on his special day. All of the Father’s day gifts that we’ve made here are really easy to make, and the toddlers and preschoolers in my daycare have been very proud to give them to their Dads. And form what I’ve heard, their Dads were touched and honored to receive them.
