Using the glue, stick the body of the rocket in the middle of the black paper. Stick the red triangle on the top of the rocket and the orange triangles on the side of the rocket, as shown in the image. Stick the stars in the background.

Step 3:

Using the hole puncher, punch holes in the bottom part of the rocket. Next, the yarn has to be threaded through the holes. If your child is too small to use yarn, you can give them cut strips of orange and yellow-colored paper.

Step 4:

Using the black marker, write down your special message inside the rocket to finish off your card! You can make it creative with something like – “Dad, I love you to the moon and back!”

Once the glue dries, your card will be ready to be gifted!
