This homemade Rocket Father’s Day card idea is perfect for our kids! My husband is an aerospace engineer so my kids always look for airplanes, spaceships, and rocket themed gifts to make for him.
Even if the father in your life is not a rocket scientist, this DIY Father’s Day card is just too cute! I love the inside that says: “You Rocket being a dad!”
We have also made this Homemade Father’s Day Card for both my husband and the grandfather’s in our family — it was a big hit too!!
