Dads deserve to be celebrated, but each year it seems to be harder than the last to think of something special you can do together. With that being said, we asked around to find some of the most unconventional ways to celebrate Father’s Day, and here are our 5 favourite ideas of the bunch:
Watch old family videos/go through old keepsakes together
If you want to go the sentimental route, and possibly shed a few (happy!) tears together, asking your father to take you through some of your old home videos or his most valuable keepsakes can make the day special for the both of you. Order some pizza, hand him his favourite beer, and get him to tell you all about his upbringing, friends, and what his favourite childhood memory of all is. Trust us, this will be a day for the books!
Go to the park and play his favourite sport
Whether you’re a sports fan or not, if your dad is, take one for the team and have a sports-themed day. You can pack a lunch, get the gear ready, and even make “team shirts” for the family to wear (if you have the time)! There’s nothing better than spending the day with your Dad doing the things he loves. He’ll remember this Father’s Day forever.
Volunteering is the Father’s Day gift that keeps on giving. Think of a charity or organization that is close to heart, and take the family out to do a good deed for the community. This can be anything from helping out a food bank, planting trees, or even cleaning up the neighbourhood. This will not only put a smile on your Dad’s face, it will help somebody in need on a day they might need it most.
Create a DIY mini putt course
We couldn’t resist this Father’s Day DIY. If your dad is a big golf fan, let him sleep in and set up this mini-putt course at home. All you’ll need (in addition to clubs and golf balls) are an assortment of different plastic cups, obstacles, tape and your best putting skills. Tape the cups to the floor (using painters tape) and arrange the obstacles any way you want. You’ll be entertained for hours!
Build something together
Whether it’s a fort, birdhouse or just helping out in the garage, busting out the tools together is a great way to connect with your Dad. You can let him decide what to build, or you can come prepared with all the necessary tools and equipment to build something his home needs (shelves, stools, etc.). He will love to teach you how to make something with your hands!
However you end up celebrating, we would like to wish you and your Dad a happy Father’s Day! If you would like to learn more about Medallion, please visit us at http://medallioncorp.com/site/.
