Father’s Day is just around the corner, and for some, it can be a tough to know how to celebrate. There are dads of all kinds, with preferences that stretch from just sitting and watching TV for a relaxing day, all the way to hiking to the top of a mountain for a great adventure.
There are a number of ways to celebrate all those amazing fathers, and with so many different choices it can be hard to narrow down the list of ideas. So, we’ve done the work for you! Here are some fun and creative ways to celebrate all those awesome dads out there, because they deserve it!
Is Dad a movie buff? Set up a movie night with the whole family and let Dad pick the movie! You can even set up the living room or media room just like a theater, complete with cozy seating, dark lighting, and don’t forget those delicious snacks!
Celebrate Dad in the amazing sunshine! You can pack a picnic and bring lots of fun games to play in the park or even just in your own backyard. Run around outdoors and play as a family while you build lasting memories with Dad that he can treasure for years to come. And don’t forget your camera so you can capture all those fantastic moments!
Is Dad the King of Dad Jokes? Set up a comedy hour, with him as the guest of honor! Each family member can take turns sharing some of their favorite dad jokes or funny memories they’ve made with Dad through the years. Build laughter into the day and build some new memories as you reflect on fun times you’ve had as a family.
Get those wheels turning with a scavenger hunt creating just for Dad! Write down clues that can lead him around the house and yard, and finally lead him to his Father’s Day gift! The whole family can walk with him as he searches for his next clue, and then join in the big finish as he reaches his destination and opens his gift!
And finally, what dad doesn’t love delicious food? Put together a complete menu of all Dad’s favorite foods, and then let him order what he’d like for dinner and dessert! Pitch in as a family and create a meal worth remembering that Dad can enjoy every bite of! You can make it as fancy or as simple as you like, just spend time together making something Dad will love, and enjoy sharing a meal that is focused on celebrating how amazing he is!
Whatever you chose to do as you celebrate this Father’s Day, make sure to include lots of time for love and building lasting memories with the whole family. After all, once all the food and gifts are set aside, Dads love their time with family the most.
Making things with our hands is just part of being human. Just about all of us worked on some sort of craft as children, and some of us grew up and still do it. Yarn, fabric, paper, needles, glue, glitter, wood or plastic, there are millions of ways to put it all together and the number of projects available on the internet is staggering. Although most people can tell you are a crafter by the threads stuck to your pants, or the glue on the back of you hand, we think these shirts will help you clarify what you love to those you see.
