Play Golf or Mini Golf
Whether Dad is a pro on the golf course or more of an ace at putt-putt, an afternoon of golf is fun for fathers and kids alike. Stick with miniature golf if the kids are beginners, of course. Going to the driving range is a great activity if Dad wants to start teaching the kids the "real" game.
Take Him Out to a Ball Game
America's favorite pastime is always a crowd-pleaser. If attending a pro baseball game isn't an option, find a local minor league or community softball game to take in.
Bowling is right up Dad's alley — especially if Father's Day is a rainy day
this year. Opt for bumper bowling to give little kids an advantage!
Casting a line with the kids is a classic, relaxing way to spend Dad's special day. Children's fishing poles can cost as little as $12 and are sure to create cute memories.
Visit a Historic Site
If your father is a history buff or veteran, visiting a history museum, war memorial, or other historic site in your area will probably fulfill his Father's Day wishes. Pack his favorite sandwiches and snacks, and enjoy a picnic nearby
Does Dad spend his free time in the garage or woodshop? Here are some simple instructions to build a birdhouse
, or find something else kid-friendly to build together. If the kids are too young to use tools, break out the paintbrushes for them to decorate whatever Dad creates.
Take a Hike
If he's like most dads, yours probably loves the great outdoors. Find a local hiking or walking trail that the entire family will enjoy. Look for trail reviews online to make sure it's suitable for younger children so that Dad doesn't end up carrying them on his back!
Have a Movie Night
Order or make
Dad's favorite pizza and turn on a family-friendly flick
that he'll love. It's the perfect ending to a fantastic Father's Day.
