Father’s Day is a special time to let the dads in your life know that they are loved and valued. However, sometimes it’s hard to know the best way to celebrate them. We’ve come up with some tips to help you brainstorm Father’s Day celebration ideas for this weekend, keeping in mind that things may look a bit different this year due to COVID-19.
Make your dad the center of attention for the day.
Because Father’s Day is all about celebrating and focusing on the important role that fathers play in our lives, let dad tell you know he would like to be recognized. Ask him how he would like to spend the day and help make it a reality. Maybe this looks like going on a hike, watching his favorite movie, and eating his favorite dessert. Letting your dad have the spotlight for the day can be a great way to help him feel celebrated and loved!
Plan Father’s Day movie night.
Another great Father’s Day celebration idea is to plan a family movie night and let dad pick the movie. Make some fun movie-themed snacks to go along with the night!
Cook dad’s favorite meal.
This Father’s Day, cook your dad’s favorite meal! Whether it’s breakfast in bed, a nice dinner, or a delicious dessert, this is a great way to show dad your appreciation!
For partners – Work together with your kids to create a memory book.
Ask your kids to think of their favorite memories with dad and work together to represent them using words, photos, and drawings. Then, put them together into a memory book. This can look like a scrapbook or virtual photo book. Get creative with it and have fun!
