Day 16 Make a Trophy for Dad

Father’s Day is tomorrow (at least here in the US) and I know for a fact that most Dads love two things – handmade gifts and sports – so why not give your Dad both! Today’s sponsor, Springfield Dolls, has a great craft for girls on their site for making a trophy for Father’s Day- we are going to take that inspiration one step further and make a doll sized trophy and I’ve made you some extra printable embellishments for both activities.

Springfield Girls Olivia (soccer player) and Madison (cheerleader) were at their spring sports banquet and Olivia received the trophy for athlete of the year.  I made her trophy using the basic instructions from the SF Style Club Father’s Day Award craft but instead of cups I used individual coffee creamer containers and I used aluminum foil instead of silver tape.

First, let’s get Dad taken care of !! Download the Father’s Day Award instructions as a PDF file and then gather your materials to make his trophy. When you get to the part about adding in photos of yourself and Dad, print out the extra page of embellishments and get creative.

Download the trophy embellishments page as a PDF file. The activity page has elements that you can use on Dad sized trophies or doll sized trophies. For the photo frames, glue your own photos in them or if you don’t have one, draw a photo in the frame. Use the ribbon without words to create your own award. If you are adding these onto the doll sized trophies you may want to use toothpicks instead of popsicle stick.

This project won’t take too long and you know your Dad or Grandfather or doll will LOVE it. We would love to see your creations, too! You can email your photos in to or post them on the Doll Diaries Facebook page or the Springfield Dolls Facebook page – they love seeing their dolls and projects in action, too!!
