Whether you’re looking for things to do on Father’s Day or want to start a new family tradition, these ideas will help you make unforgettable memories. No matter the activity, dad just wants to spend quality time together. Each activity is perfect for every kind of dad—the hungry dad, the sports-loving dad, the outdoorsy dad, and the kid at heart. This day comes only once a year, so do something thoughtful and meaningful! And don’t forget to surprise him with a personalized Father’s Day gift that he’ll treasure, after a whole day of love and laughter.
Surprise dad with a special gift.
Gifts from the heart are the very best! Show dad how much he is loved and appreciated with a personalized Father’s Day gift like the personalized book Super Dad! Dad stars in his own story and saves the day with his creativity and love. The book also comes in a Super Dad gift set with color-changing mug so dad can enjoy milk and cookies while he reads with the kids every night.
Play games and watch a movie.
A game and a movie? It’s a match made in peanut butter and jelly heaven! Spend the day relaxing at home and bust out your favorite board games, video games, and puzzles. If you’re looking for a creative way to surprise dad with a gift, pull out a personalized photo puzzle and put it together. Dad won’t realize it’s made special for him until he starts putting the pieces together and sees a beautiful picture of his family!
Personalized puzzles are sweet and unique gifts for dad. To celebrate his whole family, surprise him with a family tree puzzle that beautifully displays up to 10 family names. Dad will love this activity that he can enjoy with the whole family. When the puzzle is finished, glue it together and frame it as a special keepsake.
Go on a dessert tasting around town.
Dads with a sweet tooth—and kids too!—will hope this becomes a new Father’s Day tradition. Treat dad to his favorite desserts around town: donuts, ice cream, cupcakes…you name it! Then decide which one wins Dad’s Favorite Dessert award. Kids can even craft and color an award medal out of paper when they get home to remember the day!
Play mini golf.
Visit a mini golf course or play mini golf in your own backyard! This is a great activity for the whole family, that even the youngest children can play. If dad is an avid golfer, he’ll love to practice his putting skills and spend time doing his favorite hobby with the ones he loves!
Enjoy kid-friendly kabobs on the grill.
Who doesn’t love food on a stick? Kabobs are always a crowd pleaser, especially for kids! If dad loves to grill, try making a few different kabobs that the whole family will love. Here are some kabob options that make eating fun and creative:
- BBQ chicken and veggie
- Pork and pineapple
- Peach and watermelon with a cinnamon honey glaze
- Sweet and sour meatball kabobs with peppers
Plan a weekend camping trip.
Delight dad with a couple days outdoors for nature walks, s’mores and stargazing! If your kiddos are too young for a weekend away, pitch a tent in your backyard for a one-night adventure. Camping is a great activity for dads and kids of all ages, allowing you to connect as a family.
See a live concert or show.
Take dad to a summer concert for live music! With warm and sunny weather, summer is the perfect time to attend a show or musical festival and bring the kids too—especially if it’s your child’s first concert! Dad will love a Father’s Day activity where he can jam out to his favorite band and make memories with his favorite people.
Bike to the park for a picnic.
Go for a family bike ride and enjoy the fresh air! Bring a small picnic with dad’s favorite snack foods and enjoy at a nearby park.
Make brunch in pajamas.
Whip up the best Father’s Day brunch that anyone has ever seen! After dad has slept in, put on his favorite playlist and get cooking. Dad will love making a breakfast feast—and the sweetest memories—with his family!
