With every Fatherâ€™s Day that passes, we have to get more and more creative to come up with something that will really put a smile on his face. And thereâ€™s nothing more thoughtful than planning to spend the day having fun together. As Ask Men magazine put it, â€śâ€¦ a great gift, a present and a card cannot substitute for quality time with dad.â€ť
Take a stroll down memory laneâ€¦
Find unique ways to learn more about your dadâ€™s life before you were around. Find out what his favorite old movie or show is and plan to watch it together.
Cook up new memoriesâ€¦
Put on your chef hats or grab your grill tongs and plan to cook up a meal or grill out together.
Make (or enjoy) musicâ€¦
If you play instruments, suggest a jam session. Or, see if you can buy tickets to a live performance of his favorite band or type of music.
Take him out to the ball gameâ€¦
If your dad is a sports fan, he wonâ€™t say no to an afternoon at the stadium or arena watching his favorite sports team. If itâ€™s off season or his favorite team is playing an away game, plan to watch the game at home. Or, get out and play! Hit the batting cages or the bowling alley together, or plan to play a round of (mini) golf.
Help him cross something off of his bucket listâ€¦
Take dad somewhere he has never been to but always wanted to go, like New Orleans or the Grand Canyon. Another thoughtful idea is to plan an activity heâ€™s always wanted to try but hasnâ€™t had the opportunity to yet. Maybe heâ€™s always wanted to learn photography or take a sailing or flying lesson. Doing something where you can learn together will be rewarding for both of you!
No matter what you plan to do with your dad on Fatherâ€™s Day, you definitely have to make sure heâ€™s well fed!
