With summer just around the corner, there’s no better time to bring the family together to celebrate Dad and spend some quality time together. This year we’re looking beyond the gifts with seven family activities that will make for an unforgettable Father’s Day.
#1 Serve breakfast in bed
Start the day off right by surprising Dad with his favorite breakfast in bed. If your children are old enough, preparing breakfast together will be a fun activity. Dad will surely taste the extra love put into his meal. Just be careful not to wake him before the surprise!
#2 Watch a movie
If Dad prefers sleeping in on his day, you can spend quality time later in the day while watching a movie and enjoying some gourmet popcorn. We recommend these recipes for S’mores Popcorn and Taco Popcorn that are delicious and easy to prepare.
#3 Have a board game battle
Encourage some friendly competition on Father’s Day with a board game battle! If you need to refresh your board game collection, hop on the Flipp app for ideas and deals. Check out Qbitz and Trouble, two of our favorite games that can be enjoyed by children and parents alike.
#4 Plan a day trip
If the weather is on your side, pack up the car for an adventure at a park, beach, or nature trail. Don’t forget to prepare enough food and drinks to last the day! Add everything to your Flipp shopping list to avoid an extra store trip on Father’s Day.
#5 Be active
For the sporty dad, a day full of energizing activities will do the trick. You can play a round of mini golf, go bowling, or even play some sports in the backyard. Having some guests over? Organize your own Olympics with activities like balloon toss and frisbee throwing.
#6 Throw a cookout
Give Dad a break from the grill and treat him to a barbecue dinner fit for a king. If you’re celebrating with friends and family, get the most bang for your buck by checking the weekly ads on Flipp. It’s barbecue season, so you’ll surely find some good deals on meat and other grilling favorites.
#7 Watch a live game or show
Share the excitement and cheer as a family! Get out of the house by taking Dad to watch his favorite sports team play. Can’t make it to a game? Try a live show instead. You can jam to a local band or laugh your socks off at a comedy show.
Follow these ideas to give Dad the perfect gift that will outlast all other gifts — the gift of memories. Of course if you also need help finding the next best gift, Flipp has your back for that too! Take a look at the Father’s Day section on Flipp for more gifts he’ll love.
