Fun With Dad This Father’s Day

“What I have been trying so hard to tell you all along is simply that my father, without the slightest doubt, was the most marvelous and exciting father any boy ever had.” – From Danny the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl.

To the father figures in your life – dads, stepdads, fathers-in-law, grandfathers, and mentors – knowing you appreciate their efforts is all they’ve really ever hoped for.

While making or finding the perfect gift is always an amazing way to show appreciation, if you’re looking for a more active way to show Dad he’s your one-of-a-kind, best-of-the-best, real-world superhero this Father’s Day, you’re in luck. Whether your dad loves to spend his free time golfing, visiting music festivals, hiking and fishing, or backyard barbequing, one of these ideas is sure to inspire a day your dad will love.

Fresh air and sunshine
A little time outdoors could be just the ticket to have Dad smiling from ear to ear. Plan a family hike or bike ride, an afternoon fishing, an outing at the zoo or the beach, take in a ball game, or hang out in your own backyard. You can bring a picnic lunch, host a family cookout, or plan a fun meal out at a restaurant with outdoor seating.

It’s all fun and games
Few dads would pass up the chance for some good old-fashioned fun with the family! Think family kickball, pickleball, or disc golf; board games, bocci ball, bag-toss, horseshoes, or a round of golf. Try a video game tournament or have the kids make backyard carnival games with prizes! Knock his socks off with a trip to an amusement park, water park, go-kart track, arcade, or trampoline park.

Out on the town
If Dad likes to go out on the town, look for a comedy show, farmer’s market, or museum. Many towns host festivals or live music events this time of year, carnivals, and car shows. Make it a whole event with ice cream and a stroll around town, and sign up for a cooking class, or trivia at his favorite restaurant.

Everything is better together
Whatever your dad likes, it’s always better together! It could be just the immediate family or a giant group celebration. No matter your plans, making time on everyone’s schedule for some fun and memory-making will make this Father’s Day one to remember.
