Fun, At-Home Father’s Day Ideas for Every Type of Dad
Father’s Day may look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be fun! Planning indoor fun games and activities to celebrate dad will make this year’s holiday one he’ll never forget. Check out our list of creative games and activities for every type of dad to show your pop just how much you appreciate him.
The Dad Who Loves Karaoke
Even if the family can’t host karaoke night, you can still sing your day away by firing up the karaoke at home and belting out dad’s favorite tunes with him! Make it even more special by letting kids take center stage and singing to special tunes that they create on the interactive kids game Coding Jam.
The Laid-back Dad
Give dad some quality bonding time with his kiddos with a game night. From business-buff dads to engineer dads, there is a game that is sure to thrill every type. Battle it out over a game of Monopoly, or let kids and dad team up and steer balls together on the educational game Newton.
The DIY Dad
What could be more fun than tackling a task together with the kids? Celebrate dad’s day by being his protégé on one of his personal projects. Need to paint that wall? Got it! Plant seeds for the summer? Done! Get your kids involved with simple tasks like peeling off the painter’s tape. They could also push seeds into the soil once it is dug up by dad or help clean up the yard by pulling out the weeds. Not only will kids and dad have a blast, your little ones will learn a thing or two in the process.
The Outdoorsy Dad
For the dad that loves to spend his time outdoors, set up and play a game of mini golf in the garden or gather some wood out the back and build a fire pit together. Top it off with a night of campfires, ghost stories, and s’mores!
The Dad with Excellent Knife Skills
Just because he cannot visit his favorite brunch place does not mean he cannot enjoy a feast fit for a king. Round up the whole family and prep food together with dad heading the show. Kids can help measure and mix or decorate and lay the table. It is guaranteed to be one of the best memories dad and his little helpers will make!All these indoor fun games and activities are sure to keep his spirits high. Alternatively, dad and mom can spend an entire day with the kids doing absolutely nothing. Put away the phone, forget the errands, emails, and focus on spending some unstructured quality time together. Now would be a good time to make a movie of the day, take some instant photos, and create a scrapbook with your kids. Not only will this be a fun activity, it is sure to teach your kids the importance of family. Don’t forget to reach out to your father to wish him a happy Father’s Day as well. If he is not around, this would be a good time to tell your kids about him.
