Father’s Day falls on the 19th of June this year and there are lots of conventional things that you can do to celebrate your dad there are some alternative things that people often overlook. Whether it’s because you’re on a budget or you don’t want to make a big fuss here are some ways of alternatively celebrating Father’s Day. It is worth mentioning that although it is typical to celebrate your father on this day it’s not the limit. Some people unfortunately do not have their fathers with them anymore so take this day to celebrate your father figure or the figure who has been there for you. All of these ideas work for you to celebrate whoever you want.
If you have that you want to go out to celebrate your dad than here are a few ideas of things that you can do.
A walk in nature
One of the things that you can do to celebrate your dad is just spending time with them. Going for a walk in a park or by the beach and just experiencing nature together are the easiest ways to bond and celebrate. You can even pack a picnic and enjoy that on your walk but spending time together in a simple way like going for a walk is one of the easiest ways for celebration.
Mini golf has gained popularity over the years as a fun activity for children and adults alike.There are lots of potting places dotted around the country and it’s a really fun family activity that will remind your dad of his childlike instincts and is sure to put a smile on everyone’s faces.
Combining the previous two you could go for a walk and find a nice spot outside and bring some activities and games. For example you could bring a cricket bat and a ball some tennis rackets or set up some running races. Fun energetic activities bring people together and by doing this outside means you can enjoy the weather at the same time.
Alternatively you might decide that you want to stay in Soho so ideas to do from home.
A movie night of one of your dad’s films
Really good idea is asking your dad what his favourite film is putting it on the TV and getting some snacks and having an at home movie night.It’s a really simple idea but will go along way because you’re thinking about what your dad will enjoy.
So similar to the sports day you could do an at home games night whether that’s a board games, card games, quizzes or something else. It will bring laughter and fun to all of you but just make sure you let Dad win a few rounds!
But listen to what your dad wants!
However fundamentally you need to ask your dad what he wants to do after all it is his day of celebrations if he would like to go out then go out alternatively if he wants to stay in stay in. Because there’s nothing more important than building that relationship where you listen to one another and know how to make each other smile.
