Fun Things To Do With Dad On Father’s Day

by Emma W.R. on June 3, 2014

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Super Dad! Father’s Day is June 15th, so make it a day that you can cherish! Depending on what his hobbies are, you can make a special day with the family or just you and him. It’s his singular day to indulge, so let’s spoil him rotten!


  • Sports – Take Dad out to a ball game or any local sporting event. Bring a cooler and pack a lunch, snacks and drinks to tailgate out of the car.
  • Lunch – Go out to his favorite food spot. Hot dogs, burgers or a fine steakhouse. Give him a hearty meal and good conversation.
  • Hobbies – Book Dad a round of golf or visit a museum of his interest. Look up car shows or spend the day fishing.
  • Movies – Spend the afternoon eating popcorn and candy and check out the latest action flick.
  • His Car – Simply wash and detail Dad’s beloved car or truck. Grab the hose and the whole family to scrub down his auto to sparkle and gleam.
  • Home Depot – Bring Dad to Home Depot. Watch his face light up and all of the shiny tools and gadgets. Tell him he can pick out whatever he wants as long as it fits in the car and budget.
  • Relax on the Couch – If Dad wants to spend the day at home and avoid the restaurants and traffic, let him. Rent a season of Game of Thrones or Sons of Anarchy and binge watch episodes on the couch together.

As long you spend time together as a family, he will enjoy his day. Give him a hug and tell him he is the greatest Dad there ever was.

Action flicks are one of our favorite things to watch at the movies with dad, but whenever the budget allows we go to a NBA basketball game. BB is his love language!

We took dad to a baseball game, he didn’t enjoy it like he used to. He kept complaining about the sun and how he was just too old for this. His ideal day would have been on the couch for sure.

I agre with Mallory. Food is a great option. In my case, Dad is getting a LARGE CHEESECAKE.

Since most fathers are little boys disguised as men, why not give him something that will remind him of his childhood or teenage years? Something like a complete set of baseball cards featuring his favorite team? Or, perhaps, a video or two of a special music group or band? Anything to make him think that, even though he is getting older, it’s still okay to be a kid.

My father is impossible to shop for, but he loves to eat. I usually opt for sometihng food-related. Can’t go wrong!
