June 19 is almost here! It’s that time of the year again to celebrate the best men in our lives with some extra show of love. While there are so many sweet ways to celebrate this special day like breakfast in bed, a thoughtful present, lovely cards or a family get-together, it’s always a great idea to add more fun activities to this day to make it extra special and memorable for fathers! We’ve heard fathers complain about Father’s Day not getting as much attention and love as Mother’s Day and while we understand why this is so (mothers are the best, haha!), we want every good father to be celebrated and showered with lots of love, care and affection on Father’s Day and every other day! So if you’re not sure how to make the day extra special for your grandpa, father, step-dad, father-in-law, uncle, brother or your son who is a father, we’ve put together 24 fun activities that you can count on to do the job!
In addition to making dads feel special and loved, these Father’s Day Fun activities will take bonding to another level and what’s more, the whole family can enjoy most of the activities too. Our list has super fun ideas ranging from kid-friendly to adult-only! If you plan to give him a Father’s Day present but haven’t gotten one yet, you can check out this list of last minute gift ideas for dads on Good Housekeeping. Now let’s get to our list of fun Father’s Day activities that will help you create new memories together.
Take Him Shopping
Dads love going shopping too! So take him to his favourite mall or a better one. This is a great idea if you’re unsure of what to get him for Father’s Day. Take him on a mini shopping spree and have him pick out what he wants.
Host a Wine Tasting
If your dad loves his wine, you can organise a wine tasting event at home. Enjoy some delicious cheese and grapes while at it and don’t forget to have wine tasting scorecards available to keep track of his thoughts about each wine he tastes.
Put on a Show
Put a big smile on dad’s face by performing a song he absolutely loves or even an original song written specially for him! You can also put on a dance show and have him join you midway. These memories will last for a long time!
This is another dads’ favourite. Bird watching is a great way to appreciate nature and it’s very inexpensive. All you’ll need is a pair of binoculars or/and a camera for photos.
Set up a Photoshoot
The whole family will definitely love to have photos of all fathers together so this is great idea! Have the dads, grandpas and other father figures in your life dress up and come together for a photoshoot. Father’s Day is also a great time to recreate a favourite childhood picture. If he prefers hiking, have him pick a location and go for it!
Create a Scrapbook
Not a digital one; get crafty and make one from scratch with a few materials and fun pictures of your dad and other family members. Have dad pick out his favourite photos and tag them in his own words.
Outdoor Movie Night
Get a projector, popcorn, mats, blankets and pillows and you can have a movie night in your own backyard! Make a list of great Father’s Day movies to enjoy with the family.
We know a lot of dads who are always up for a hiking day or camping night but hardly get the chance to especially with family. If he chooses camping, get ready to pitch up a nice tent, roast some marshmallows over a campfire or make some s’mores and enjoy the beauty of nature at night.
Have a Picnic Day
Pick a great spot for a fun picnic and enjoy the sunshine and smell of grass. Pack your dad’s favourite food and make a list of outdoor games you can play.
Organise a Home Spa Day
Yes, dad’s love some pampering too! Treat your dad to a home service spa time with some pedicure, back massage, facials and more.
