Father’s Day is approaching and many of us are left wondering what can we do or where can we go that dad will enjoy? Father’s Day is a lot like Mother’s Day; however, I don’t think dad will want flowers, chocolate or perfume. I also don’t think dad would enjoy a trip to IHop or the Cheesecake Factory much either, so what should you do?
First, stop and think what does dad like to do? What can the children do for dad, what can you do for your dad or for your father-in-law? I have some ideas to help make these decisions a little bit easier.
Father’s Day Activities:
Take Dad to a Sporting Event. If you have children you can purchase tickets for your children and their dad to enjoy the day together. Don’t think he will make it, join them. Spend the day together, let dad soak up the sun, scream for his team and enjoy his time relaxing with the kids. Even if you are an adult wanting to do this for your Father you will still enjoy the time reminiscing and spending the quality time together that you once did as a child.
Take Dad out to Dinner at HIS Favorite Place. Sounds simple doesn’t it? The catch is… You are not allowed to ask him what his favorite place is. Dads and even moms tend to be repetitive in their favorite dining places, pick his favorite (from your memory) and make it special. To make it fun, blindfold dad in the passenger seat so he has no idea where he is going.
Create/Play Father’s Day Trivia. Have your family get together, this includes your Father, your partners Father, your grandfathers or whoever, make it a family ordeal. Have each Father write down fun facts, talents or anything about themselves on small pieces of paper, once they are done have them fold the pieces of paper up and put them in a hat, jar or a container of your choice. Mix them all together. Sit down as a family at the table, have the dads draw out the papers one by one. After each paper is drawn “vote” by raising hands which Dad did/said what’s on the paper then have the Dad who wrote that particular thing announce it was them. Continue until each paper has been completed. This is a fun activity and will be a fun learning experience.
Create a Candy Bar Poster. Make Dad a poster telling him what you think about him using candy bars as some of your words. For example: I think my dad is GRAND you can use a 100 Grand candy bar and cross out the 100.
What Father’s Day activities or traditions do you have planned?
