Get The Most Out of Father's Day With These Fun Family Activities

>> Jun 6, 2017

Father’s Day is a wonderful time to put aside the stress of everyday life and reconnect as a family. The best way to do this is by getting away from screens. Encourage your child to put away their game systems and phones while you spend time together. To help you accomplish this, here is a list of six activities to help you make your Father’s Day the best it can possibly be.

Have A Barbecue And Family Game Night

Barbecuing is more than just another way to cook food. It creates an atmosphere where the family can spend time together. While one person cooks, the others can enjoy nature, play a game, or talk. If your children are young, this is also a great time to teach them a good life skill. Specifically, you can teach them how to light a grill, either propane or charcoal, cook the meat of your choice, and safely put away the fire. A good way to maximize your enjoyment together is to have after-meal games planned, or even a jam session if the family sings or plays musical instruments. There are a wide variety of outdoor games to choose from that are good for all ages. To help instill a sense of responsibility in your child, ask them to plan the game you will play. This way they are invested in the activity and are more likely to participate.

Do One Of Dad's Favorite Hobbies

Let your family show Dad just how much you care by taking interest in one of his hobbies. Does he enjoy golfing? If so, Shawna at Where's My Caddie suggests getting the family out of the house and hitting up the local mini golf course, which makes the sport accessible for even the smallest family members. Does he enjoy fishing? Look for local pontoon boat rentals so the whole family can make a day out of it on the lake. Just remember to bring something for lunch in case Dad isn't the fisherman he claims to be! No matter what the Dad in your family loves to do in his spare time, you should be able to turn it into an activity that all of you can enjoy together.

Go Hiking

Getting away from screens and other distractions is a wonderful way to connect. You can do this by going for a nice hike. If you are unsure of where to go, check the internet for a local hiking club. Local clubs provide maps of good hikes for all skill levels. If your children are young, you will want a relatively level hike that isn’t too long. A good opportunity to help your children engage in the activity is to allow them to choose which hike to do. Make a short list of three to four possible hikes and let them choose. Make sure you wear proper footwear, or this great opportunity for families to spend time in a healthy and productive way can turn into a very unpleasant blister filled day. And let the kids pack a snack for Dad when you take a break on the trail.

Go To Your Local Zoo Or Aquarium

Few things are more exciting to children then live animals. Taking them to your local zoo or aquarium is a good way for them to have a fun and educational day with Dad. People often think of the zoo and aquarium as good only for young children, but these activities are good for all ages. Furthermore, it is a good opportunity to bond with your children as you learn. Once again, the best way to ensure that your children are engaged is to involve them in the planning stage. Go onto the Zoo or Aquarium’s website and get a map of the different exhibits. Allow your children to plan which exhibits they want to take

Dad to first. Children will tire quickly, and it’s a good idea to go see the things they are most likely to be interested in showing Dad before they get tired.

Go To A Baseball Game

Early summer is a fantastic time to go to a baseball game. This is a great activity, even if you aren’t a fan of the sport – just be sure that Dad enjoys it! Baseball games provide an arena in which you can sit and talk with the family while enjoying the sport. The game itself isn’t so strenuously active that it requires intense watching. Rather, it is a place where you can get an ice cream cone and teach your children about the game. Alternatively, if you aren’t very knowledgeable about the game, you can just enjoy the pageantry. Make sure that you take a baseball glove with you. Nothing will make Father’s Day memorable like catching a foul ball.

Go To A Local Museum

People think of museums as dusty, boring, and old. That is not true to children, especially young children. Most museums today have interactive exhibits which will keep children entertained for hours. If you are unsure of which museum your child will enjoy, a good place to begin is your local natural history museum. Natural history museums have minerals on display, meaning precious gems, as well as dinosaurs and exotic animals. This is a great way to stimulate your child’s imagination and learn something at the same time. Depending on the age of the children, you can also make a scavenger hunt out of the visit. Make a list of displays to see and let them go find each of the items. Make sure that you give them a prize for all their hard work.

These are just some of the fun activities that families can do to celebrate Father's Day this year. No matter what you choose to do, just remember to let Dad know how much everyone appreciates him.
