9 Ways to Show Dad How Great He Is


Happy Father's Day!

Sunday, June 20th is all about the dad(s) in your life! So, here are some ideas for celebrating with the whole family for a great Father’s Day!

9 ideas for how to celebrate Father's Day

  1. DIY with dad. Men and their masterpieces is an age-old pairing. Pitching in with the kids to help out with dad’s latest DIY darling is a fun way to spend time as a family and support dad’s passions. Whether it’s helping sand something down or serving as brush-holder to dad’s inner artist, the learning opportunities are endless.
  2. Help out other dads. The best gifts are of the charitable kind. Volunteering as a family helps families in less-fortunate situations and reminds children the importance of giving back.
  3. Schedule a “Sibling Sunday.” Uncle Charlie ALWAYS has the best stories about dad. Show your children how sibling relationships can be fun and important by inviting dad’s whole clan over to share in the day and enjoy the tall tales. Taking kids to dad’s favorite childhood hangout spots is another great way to connect with the past.
  4. Deliciousness allowed. If dad has a favorite homemade meal or goes crazy for a certain joint’s hamburgers and milkshake, make it happen for him! This is his special day and the perfect day for the family to indulge in a little deliciousness.
  5. Couch potatoes welcome. Between soccer games, homework, ballet practice and meal-making, you’re a family on the go. This Father’s Day, give all your busy feet a break and flop down on the couch. Rent the movies you missed in the theaters and catch up on your favorite TV shows!
  6. Play ball. Busy schedules can sometimes mean losing sight of dad’s favorite pastimes. Get the kids’ jerseys, fishing rods or sneakers out and send them out for an outing with dad—of his choice.
  7. Dine with dads. Sharing the day with other families over an outdoor, socially distanced Father’s Day brunch or picnic is a great way to bring dad together with his favorites. Getting together with people you may not have seen for while will help make new memories and be fun for the whole family!
  8. Dadapalooza. Giving dad time to hang out with other dads at some point during the weekend can help him recharge with some of his peers!
  9. Lounge a little. Yes, we’re serious. Start the day with a big homemade family breakfast and segue into a board game blowout. A relaxing day with no agenda could set the stage for the most memorable Father’s Day ever.
