I don’t know about you, but for some reason whenever Father’s Day rolls around, my family doesn’t do much to celebrate. We’ll get my Dad a gift and maybe have lunch or dinner with him and that’s it. This year I thought it would be fun to do an actual activity. Here are some fun, unique activities to do to celebrate Father’s Day.
1) Go to a Baseball Game
Even if you don’t like Baseball, going to a game is a great activity to do as a family. Root for the home team, get some hot dogs, and enjoy a nice, probably warm day at the ball park. It’s a classic way to celebrate, and is especially great if your family does love Baseball (like mine).
2) Have a Cookout
For big families with a lot of dads, this is the perfect event. You can bring together the whole family and celebrate with a barbecue (and pool party if you’re lucky enough to have your own pool). My Dad would probably be the one arguing that no one can grill better than him and then insist on making all the food.
3) Offer to do His Favorite Activity Together
Whether your Dad loves to fish, or golf, or even bowl (my Dad loves to make beer), offer to do whatever it is with him. Your Dad will appreciate the gesture of doing something he likes to do and making an effort in his interests is a great way for you to bond.
Even if your Dad doesn’t love to golf, mini-golfing is always a fun activity for the whole family. This is great for the whole family (of all ages) and a perfect stress-free activity. Go play a round, or two, and then take your whole family out for ice cream.
5) Go for a Bike Ride or Hike
If the weather is nice, go do something fun outdoors. Go to a bike trail and ride bikes as a family, or go explore a park and hike (or take your dog to the dog park). Snap some cute, celebratory pictures and bring some snacks to eat along the way.
What are you planning on doing this Father’s Day?
