After drawing up the symbol, I used my handy dandy X-Acto knife to cut out my superman emblem. I had to papers stacked – a blank red one was under the one I had all marked up.
I then traced the outside of the symbol. I used a ruler to mark it just slightly smaller than the red symbol. I used the knife to cut it out. Yes, this card took a bunch of prep from me, but it’s now the kids’ turn to step in to help a little.
We took a blue sheet of card stock and folded it in half. They first glued the yellow on the paper. Next, it was time for them to glue the Super Dad symbol. It was originally going to be a rectangular card, but we decided to make it into a square. Another thing we considered but the girls decided against (surprising me) was turning the card into the shape of a cape. Inside I wrote “We think you are a super dad.” Then, the girls were able to write and design the inside.
