summertimedadday Summertime: Fun Fathers Day Ideas

It’s true, Father’s Day is a great time to sit back and relax with Dad, but why not get out and enjoy the day?  Click more for some fun ideas to celebrate Dad’s special

Father’s Day activities don’t have to break the budget – play a game of horseshoes or volleyball in the backyard. Go for a hike together or shoot some baskets at a local park. Dad’s gifts can include exciting adventures like deep sea fishing, whitewater rafting, sky diving or hang gliding. Get his blood pumping and he’ll appreciate it!

After spending the day together doing fun outdoorsy things, take some down time and watch a movie together. Add one of our top 10 Father’s Day films listed below to Dad’s gifts:

  1. Big Fish (2004, Ewan McGregor)
  2. The Godfather (1972, Marlon Brando)
  3. In The Name of The Father (1994, Daniel Day Lewis)
  4. My Girl (1991, Dan Akroyd)
  5. Dad (1989, Ted Danson)
  6. Big Daddy (1999, Adam Sandler)
  7. Three Men and a Baby (1987, Tom Selleck)
  8. Father of the Bride (1991, Steve Martin)
  9. Father’s Day (1997, Robin Williams)
  10. Daddy Day Care (2003, Eddie Murphy)

Remember that Father’s Day is about Dad first. Look for ways to enjoy the activities he enjoys, but also make them kid-friendly – if Dad’s got little girls who like tea parties but he’s into pro-football, search for a happy medium like horseback riding or a day at the beach. If Dad’s a history buff but his sons are into wrestling, take the family to a war reenactment where the kids can play a role. Find creative ways for the family to enjoy time together and this will be Dad’s best Father’s Day yet.
