Unique Ways to Spend Father's Day as a Family
Father’s Day is about paying tribute to all the amazing dads in your life. Yes, it can be your dad, but the day doesn’t have to stop there. You can also honor your husband, your grandpa, your uncle, and even your brother. That means that there are a lot of men in your family who are worthy of a special treat this June. That got us thinking - why not celebrate Father’s Day as a family? Here are our five favorite ways to get it done
1. Take a Hike
With Father’s Day happening in June, it’s nice outside almost everywhere. We love the idea of getting outside and hitting the trails. Find a local state or national park and head out there! A little advance research can help you decide on a trail that is appropriate for everyone in the family. Coordinate with the others going to put together a potluck picnic for the end of the hike.
2. Visit a Museum
Maybe one of the dads in your life is a veteran or a history buff. If so, a family trip to a local memorial or museum could be very sentimental. If this doesn’t apply to you, chances are you can find some other sort of cultural experience nearby that will appeal to the men in your life. Noticing their interests and prioritizing them is a great way to show that you care.
3. Mini Golf
Everyone loves a round on the links, but the big course might be hard for the little dudes. Take the whole family to a local mini golf range and feel free to get a little silly with it. Try hitting the ball with the wrong end of your putter, or even using just your feet on one hole. The idea is to keep it fun, not competitive, and make memories.
4. Movie Night
If daytime activities make it difficult to coordinate a whole family Father’s Day celebration, move the party into the evening. Get your hands on dad’s favorite movie and plan to have fresh popcorn on hand. We especially like this idea when it follows a backyard BBQ and a game of catch.
5. Ten Pin
Classic bowling is a great way to celebrate Father’s Day across the generations. The nostalgic feel is great for grandpa, and the fun factor is off the charts for little brothers and sons. Especially if it happens to be rainy or chilly this year, heading into a bowling alley can be a fun way to spend the day. If it’s beautiful outside, consider picking up a lawn bowling kit!
