This Shark Father’s Day Card is loads of fun for kids and dads! What better way to tell Dad he’s totally awesome or should I say totally JAWSOME?!
This printable shark card has a cool shark pun message at the top which says, “Happy Father’s Day, You are Jawsome!”. Glued beneath the message is a shark swimming towards the surface, a bit like the old Jaws film posters! Rather than being menacing however, our shark is super cute and fun with an open and shut mouth where kids can write a special message for Daddy. You could also use the mouth to draw a picture or glue a photograph instead.
These Father’s Day shark cards are easy to make with the printable template. The shark pattern comes in both colour and black and white. The colour template is ready to use and the B/W template can be either coloured in with paints, pens, pencils etc. or you can trace around it onto coloured cardstock if you prefer.
As we have visitors from around the world, we’ve made the printable shark cards in two formats for your convenience. One has UK spellings and is in A4 size and the other has US spellings and is in letter size.
