Celebrate Father’s Day As A Family With These Ideas

Once a year, a day is set aside specifically to honor and celebrate fathers and their influence on the family unit.

This year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 18th, and families all around the world will celebrate and honor dad.

Are you looking for creative ways to celebrate Father’s Day this year?

Think outside the box!

With most dads often working during the week, now is the perfect chance to spend time together and truly celebrate all he does to provide.

There are many activities right in your neighborhood that are inexpensive and sure to bring a smile to dad’s face.

If dad is more active and sporty, play a game of golf or mini-golf. Dad can show off his “pro” golf moves, and who doesn’t love a fun game of putt-putt?

You can also check out the local batting cages and swing some bats together. Bowling is another fun option that kids of all ages can participate in. Make it a friendly competition!

If dad wants to take it easy, check out a local ballgame and root from the sidelines. If there isn’t a pro-team in your town, look to see if there are other local games you can attend.

If dad is more the “foodie” type, take him out to his favorite restaurant and treat him to lunch.

To those on a budget, you can bring out the grill, cook burgers and hotdogs, or even BBQ ribs. If you opt for a family BBQ, you can always toss a frisbee, play catch, or even a game of cornhole.

If dad’s the “handyman” type, you can build something together as a family! Whether it’s a new bookcase for the hallway, a table for the living room, or even something small like a picture frame, give dad the chance to show off his skills and build a memorable item you’ll cherish forever.

For those dads who like traveling and adventure, consider taking a day-trip to a new spot.

To make the most out of your day-trip, you can check out local historic sites, or just get on the road and drive somewhere with no destination planned. Be sure to explore all the local stops on the way – who knows, you just might find your new favorite hole-in-the-wall spot!

Most important, ask dad what HE wants to do on his special day.

He may be tired of the hustle and bustle of the everyday workweek, and may just want to sit and watch sports, check out a new movie, or do absolutely nothing!

The best Father’s Day may be ordering a pizza and spending time also doing absolutely nothing – but together as a family!

Father’s Day is a chance to show appreciation.

Remember to take time this Father’s Day and say “thank you” to the men in your life who are fathers.

While it’s important to cherish fathers each day, make them feel extra special today, and honor them by giving them a day they’ll never forget.
