5 Wonderful Ways To Celebrate Father’s Day As A Family

Although we try to appreciate our dads every day, Father’s Day is a particularly wonderful time to celebrate them and everything they’ve done for us. If you have children, it’s a great way for them to show their dad how much he means to them. But you might be wondering how you and your kids can make his day and luckily this year, Father’s Day falls on a Sunday, so you’ve got the weekend to celebrate. If that’s you, then you’ve come to the right place as we’ve lined up some easy and fabulous ways for you and your your family to make the day special whilst spending time together. We know that many people have an uncle or grandad who they see as a father figure, so feel free to do these activities with them, too.



  1. Take him to a new restaurant or cafe

If you know a dad that loves food, why not take him to try some new food at a new restaurant or cafe or maybe grab his favourite meal? Maybe it’s the one he’s been wanting to try for ages, or the one you always walk past but have never tried. If the menu looks like his thing, then give it a go! This is also a great thing to do if you have children so they can spend quality time with their dad and eat some yummy food. It could be fun for your children to give their dad these coupons which they can write some lovely activities and treats on for him.


  1. Do his favourite activity

What is it that dad loves? It could be fun to ask your children what they think their dad would like to do, and pick one of their answers. If you’re still in need of some inspiration, maybe you could take him bowling. Bowling is also a really fun activity for children, too. Or, if films are his thing, why not take him to see a new movie at the cinema? There’s always new things on and a trip out to the cinema can be exciting for the kids! If you’re looking for something a little more budget-friendly, you could always do an at-home movie night and make your own popcorn, rent a film and grab some blankets and cosy up on the sofa.


If you’re looking for another money-friendly activity, you could visit a museum as a family. A lot of museums are free entry and normally have immersive activities and displays for children, too. You could use this museum scavenger hunt to make it that little bit more exciting for little ones!


  1. Go on a nature walk or bike ride

Sometimes, the simple things are the most effective. Taking some time to be with your family and spending time in nature can be the best way to recharge. Especially if dad is a outdoor lover then this could be right up his stress. Taking a bike ride or a long walk with the family can be a wonderful way to bond and also a great way to save some money. You could do some outdoor activities on your walk, or use a scavenger hunt checklist for the children to do with their dad and spend some time together as a family. You could try somewhere new or go to the family’s favourite walking place.


Hopefully, the sun will be out!


  1. Go on a day trip

Taking a day trip is a brilliant and exciting way to celebrate Father’s Day, whether that be to a new or favourite place. If you’re looking to explore, why not try a new city? This is a great idea if you’re planning a day out with family, as cities offer lots of activities and food. It’s also something you can do if the weather isn’t so great. If you live in the UK and you want to try visiting a new city, check these ones out:


  • York – (A great place to go if you’ve got Harry Potter fans!) Visit York Cathedral, York Dungeon, play Hole In The Wand, Harry Potter Escape Room and visit The Shop That Must Not Be Named
  • London – You could take the family to see a show, take the london eye, go to the Natural History Museum or Science Museum or visit Sea Life.
  • Birmingham – If you’ve got a chocolate lover, Cadbury World is a must! Visit West Midlands Safari Park or try Treetop Crazy Golf. Maybe you could give Dudley Zoo or Drayton Manor a visit
  • Manchester – Visit the Trafford Centre or go to the Legoland Discovery Centre


These are just a few of the things that you can do in these cities to get you started.


  1. Host a family Competition Day

Who doesn’t love a bit of friendly competition? A great way to bring the family together and involve everyone is to host some garden or indoor games. If the weather is good, you could play some rounders outside or play croquet. You could even try dodgeball or a mega sized game like outdoor Jenga. Whilst you’re at it, why not get a barbeque going, too? After a day like that, it’s bound to leave a smile on dad’s face!

This idea still works even if the weather is bad, as you can still host games and share food inside with family. You could play board games or games on a console. You could even make up your own trivia game to play with the children, which could be about sports, animals or anything! You could even invent a “who knows who best” game for everyone to take part in. Spending time together with your loved ones on Father’s Day is a wonderful way for all of the dad’s in the family to feel appreciated.
