Sports games often have an atmosphere of excitement and energy, not to mention an aroma of delicious foods and snacks. Take Dad out to the ball game!
Food is a great way to bring the family together and start traditions. Whip up some omelets, French toast, blueberry muffins, smiley face pancakes, or anything else -- you name it! Start a memorable day off with a memorable meal.
Help kids create a list of why they think their dad is great. There are several different ways to present these sweet sentiments to Dad such as:
Cut out a large paper man, decorate it like Dad, and write on it the things you all love about Dad.
Create a Father’s Day message plaque (click here for an example).
Put together a “basket of love” with meaningful messages (click here for an example).
Ideas could include a chandelier of ties (real or paper), toolbox-shaped placemats, or a “Happy Father’s Day” banner.
Achieving a goal together can bring a sense of accomplishment and bonding, so pull out those tools!
Sometimes the day to day routines can wear everyone, including Dad, out! Get some fresh air and rejuvenation as a family by exercising and enjoying nature.
These could include (but are not limited to) “pop”corn, soda “pop”, Dad’s Root Beer, Papa John’s or Papa Murphy’s pizza, Blow”pop” lollipops, etc).
