In our true last-minute fashion, we are preparing Bilingual Father’s Day cards only a couple days before the occasion!
Thankfully, I already created these printable English and Chinese Father’s Day cards last year! My daughter was excited to decorate these necktie books again!
As usual, I’m happy to share our free bilingual Father’s Day cards! They are available in simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese, and English.

Father’s Day: Important vocabulary in Chinese and English
In our family, my husband speaks only English with our children, while I speak both Chinese and English with them.
Even though cannot understand Chinese, my daughter will create cards in both languages for him and translate as needed.
贺卡 / 賀卡 (hè kǎ / greeting cards) are also a fun way to review relevant vocabulary and practice reading and writing!
Here are key words about Father’s Day in simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese, and English:
- 爸爸 (Bàbà / Dad)
- 父亲 / 父親 (Fùqīn / Father)
- 爷爷 (Yéyé / Paternal grandfather)
- 外公 (Wàigōng / Maternal grandfather)

English and Chinese Father’s Day Printables: Candid photos
Here is my 5.5-year-old daughter cutting out each of the neckties!
Voila! Cutting is done, and it’s time to color!
We used markers for the Chinese and English words so that they would stand out more.
For the first page of each necktie book card, we shaded in the paper.
Then, we creased the top of the necktie along the solid line.
Lastly, we glued the top of the necktie together. This is what holds the pages of the necktie book together!
