This footprint and handprint lion craft is my favorite new Father’s Day printable we made this year (see all of our printables here). It reads, ‘My Dad is King of the Grill … and I”m Not Lion!’ We love cards and crafts that are a play on words! This one is perfect for the dads who love a good barbeque and enjoying cooking on the grill.

We love it when my hubby grills out. Our favorite is the carne asada that he makes with grilled onions – yum! What’s your favorite food cooked on the grill?
