If your dad is into a bit of friendly competition, set up some athletic events or an obstacle course in your backyard and have a dad versus kids event.
It's always a good time to break out the costumes, and whether you want to get all fancy for an afternoon tea party or you want to help Dad reenact his favorite movie characters — James Bond, anyone? — he'll have fun bringing out his inner kid again.
There are few more fun ways to celebrate than with a good dance party, and Dad will love to spend some time on Father's Day rocking out to his favorite tunes.
Dust off some of your family's favorite games for a fun game party on Father's Day. Play something ridiculous and silly like Apples to Apples or Catchphrase, something brainy like Boggle or Chess, or something involving a bit more strategy like poker or Risk.
Take Father's Day to the next level by calling the other special fathers in your life. Hop on the phone with your dad and call your grandfathers, uncles, father-friends, and all father-adjacent figures who share their love in your life.
It's not uncommon for a dad to need a bit of fashion help. Assist him in going through his closet, and make it fun by having a fashion show. When you have an idea of his current inventory you can help him online shop for some new pieces to add to his wardrobe. Rest assured, he'll thank you.
This activity is as special for the kids as it is for Dad. Have Dad pick out his favorite story and take turns reading it aloud with the kids. It's the perfect pre-bedtime activity.
Make Father's Day a movie night by screenings some of Dad's favorites that match a theme. Like, all of the Godfathers or a Tim Curry marathon (Clue, Rocky Horror, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars? Yes please!). Obviously, keep age-appropriateness in mind when you're picking your selections!
You can include Dad in the process of making his Father's Day crafts. Or the whole family can also get together and complete a puzzle.
If you want to plan something more creative, put on a show! The kids can sing a song, do a dramatic reading, or make up a skit (with costumes) for him to enjoy.
