2 A feast for the ‘Dad of Dads’ – why not make dad something delicious this Father’s Day. It doesn’t have to be an extravagant spread but more a selection of all his favourites. Here are a few ideas:
- Butler service – your little ones could create a menu just for Dad, they could dress as butlers, take Dad’s order and provide a 5 star experience.
- Buffet – you could present a buffet that has everything dad likes, from hot to cold, savoury and sweet – anything goes. As long as it is a ‘Dad favourite’ add it to the table.
- Takeout – what is Dad’s favourite takeout? Why not surprise him with his most enjoyed meal or meals
- Sweet treats – who doesn’t love a sweet or two. We particularly like these pick ‘n’ mix options that Clickin it offer here a fabulous way to to satisfy the sweet cravings and plenty of options available
3 Plan an adventure – what are Dad’s favourite things to do? Use this day to create more memories, by planning a day filled with action packed activities – need some inspiration, we have you covered. Why not try some of these:
- Host a mini sporting tournament – egg and spoon race, relay race, football, rugby, badminton, cricket, so many different sports you could include in your event. (depending on how nice you are feeling, you might even let Dad win)
- Visit Dad’s favourite places – road trip to visit all of Dad’s favourite places
- Explore ancestral locations - research Dad’s favourite past time locations and schedule a visit to as many of them as you can
- Paint balling & Go- karting or what about GO Ape – all perfect for an adventurous Dad
4 Lights, Camera, Action - let the kids prepare a short play for their Dad. This could not only be a way for them to show off their devotion to their Dad, it will also provide Dad with some downtime whilst they are rehearsing for ‘curtains up’.
Not sure what your short play could be about? What about these:
- A scene from Dad’s favourite film
- A verse from Dad’s favourite poem
- The chorus from Dad’s favourite song
- An entirely new song, poem or short story about Dad, written by the kids
Whichever you choose, make sure to get the camera out – Dad will want these memories forever
5 DadFest – Why not do all of the above but end the day with a a Dad Fest. What dad wouldn’t love a day of all his favourites, mixed with a little music, and a little dancing, surrounded by all the people he loves. Make sure to include Dad themed:
- Costumes (dress up as dad to see his reaction)
- Dancing competitions (time to bust out the good old ‘dad moves’)
- Jokes – who doesn’t love a dad joke
Why not add ‘Pin the moustache on Dad’ as the main game
