Thinking of something special each year to let your dad know how much you appreciate him can be difficult and expensive. But Father’s Day doesn’t have to be stressful with these easy, fun and cost-effective ideas to celebrate as a family this year.
1. Prepare a picnic and enjoy the outdoors together
Whether your dad is a fishing man or someone who prefers a more physical walking trek, putting together a simple picnic basket on Father’s Day means you can bring all of your dad’s favourite treats with you to enjoy along with his favourite activities. For the health-conscious dad, fruits and vegetables are easy to transport. For someone with a sweet tooth, baking something just for dad makes it extra special.
2. Get competitive and go bowling
There’s something for both the kids in the family and dads who are young-at-heart at a bowling alley filled with classic arcade games and nostalgia. Some places allow you to bring your own food, while others offer the option of buying classics like hot chips and chicken wings. Plus, is there anything more satisfying than beating your dad in a bit of friendly competition? Most venues today are also licensed to serve alcohol and open during the day and night, an added bonus for the adults in the family.
3. Cook dinner with dad as a family
Get the whole family involved in cooking dad’s favourite meal this Father’s Day. You can easily assign each kid a task, like setting the table or helping put together a salad, and make cooking a family celebration. The fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach after all, so why not have some fun and make some memories as a family together for an extra special celebration.
