fathers day family activities

Father’s Day is just around the corner! Celebrate all the dads and father figures in your family’s life on June 17th. Need some ideas of fun ways to spend time together? We’ve got just what you need. Here are 5 fun activities that your father and father figures are sure to love:

Get Sporty

Even if your dad isn’t a big sports fan, doing some sporty things together is a perfect way to spend time with each other! Putt Putt Golf is a great family friendly version of your dad’s favorite sport. Of if golf is too hot, try bowling. You can even create your own bowling alley with cups and a ball!

Build It

If your dad loves to build, get a packaged wood kit to assemble together. Look up your local hardware store’s calendar to find a group building class. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, grab some tools and supplies and build your own invention. When there are no rules, you can’t make a mistake!

Play Ball

Grab a ball, any ball, and play catch! Baseball, football, tennis balls, bouncy balls – anything goes. Create your own game and play together or teach a new game to your kids. When you’re ready to watch the real thing, head to the baseball diamond. Many professional baseball teams offer discounted tickets for families. Search online for packages and take the family out to the ball park.

Watch It

Plan a family movie night together. Watch dad’s favorite movie, or come up with a theme for the night. Make tickets to the “theater”, snacks to have at the “concession stand” and a snugly spot for everyone to sit. If you’re feeling brave, head outdoors and set up a movie on a projector and blank sheet!

Get Out

Summer is the perfect season to get outside. Hike, swim, bike ride or even just a walk together is time well spent. Visit a national park, state park or other landmark to include some education for your history loving dad.  Or pitch a tent together for a family camping trip. Even a tent in the backyard is a great way to spend time together in the great outdoors.
