Families all around the world celebrate Father’s Day and plan special activities to celebrate the special men in their lives.

It’s also a holiday that celebrates and honors fathers and their influence in our lives. You don’t solely have to honor your biological father on this holiday though. Celebrate grandfathers, stepfathers, adoptive fathers, and others you consider father figures by giving them a gift, a handmade present or special meal to show your appreciation.

Take a few minutes to help your children make this cool Father’s Day DIY “Pop” Card.
