For this year’s Father’s Day celebration, we’ve put together a set of downloadable cards that you can print onto card stock, cut out, and make into a little present to give to dad, some other maker in your life, or to keep for yourself. The three cards are: Basic Maker Skills for Kids, the Maker’s Checklist (for project planning), and the wildly popular Tips My Dad Says card (one of last year’s most popular posts/downloads on the site). We’ve even included a gift card that you can use. Your recipient can pin these cards up in a workshop or slot them into the pocket of a Maker’s Notebook.

We hope the patriarchs in your life have a great day and that we can encourage you to celebrate the maker in them. We’ve started a fun conversation on the craziest thing dad ever built (or tried to build). You can add your stories here. We’ll wrap the best of these up on Sunday.
