The Experience is the Gift
Here are a few more ideas to get you out and about with your dad:
Personalize the Invitations
To turn a trip to the theater to see Babies into a Father's Day celebration event, it's as easy as printing a few baby pictures of your kids to use as personalized movie ticket invitations to the family.
The Race Is On
Check out air races, car races and horse races in your area, or make your own obstacle course race in your backyard or the local park.
Kicking, Screaming, Throwing (not what you think!)
Kick the soccer ball around with your dad, check out a concert together or go with the classic Father's Day experience of taking in a baseball game...pro, semipro, college, Little League or a neighborhood game will do the trick!
Plant a Hamburger Garden
If dad's a grill kind of guy, plant vegetables that he likes in his hamburger . Include essentials for his favorite burger: tomatoes, heirloom lettuce, arugula, garlic, peppers, onions, cucumbers, eggplant, etc. Give him a farmers' market basket filled with the fully grown version so he knows what you've planted for him. When your crop has matured, throw another burger fest in honor of your pop.
Dad's Day Dessert
Extend the tradition by making a big deal out of dessert on dad's day. For colorful dessert shots, fill 2- or 3-ounce glasses (plastic is fine) with brownie bites and ice cream layered with whipped cream. Top with the number of candles that corresponds with the number of years your daddio has been a father. Make a wish, Dad!
Celebrate the dads for sure, but also make it a holiday for everyone...and enjoy!
