Father's Day Craft: Handprint Baseball Cards
With Father’s Day just a few days away, little english has put together the perfect craft to give to Dad on his special day! Tradition has been, and continues to be an important part of little english. We incorporate tradition closely into our clothing designs to create classic and timeless pieces for families, that’s why we wanted to share a craft with you that will celebrate dad and maybe start a tradition in your family to do on every Father’s Day.
This hand tracing baseball card is not only a heartfelt gift to give to Dad but it also will be a wonderful keepsake. As your children grow older, you can look back on when they gave these cards to Dad and remember how little their handprints used to be. You can also write a sweet message to Dad in the card that he will hold close to his heart.
To match these precious Father’s Day baseball cards, little english has designed a summery and stylish baseball collection. Baby boy will look adorable in the Beach Bubble in Baseball. With an apron front, thin criss cross straps, and a baseball applique, this red seersucker gingham style is perfect for the summer heat!
For toddler boy we love the Applique Peter Pan Short Set in Baseball. This set features a peter pan collared shirt with a baseball applique in the center and seersucker gingham shorts. The shorts feature a banded waist band for easing dressing for toddler boy. To match brother, the Raglan T-Shirt Dress in Baseball is great for sister. This dress combines red and light blue stripes for a patriotic feel and also features applique baseball pockets.
