Father’s Day is coming. Most time we do Mother’s Day up big, and then Father’s Day comes along. And it is just not…. as big.

Come on Mom! Although, they may not carry the babies in their bellies, they may always go to work and don’t have time to spend with you and kids, he is the cheese to your burgers, the peas to your carrots. Moreover, you and your kids looooove the guy! Why don’t we make this Father’s Day unforgettable, shall we?

Serve Dad an all-star brunch

What is the best way to start off Father’s Day? A table full of all of Dad’s favorite brunch recipes, of course. Wow him with an all-star spread of waffles, eggs, and fruit — and don’t forget the coffee and OJ, obviously!

Water fight!

The backyard barbecues in June tend to blend together, don’t they? But the one with the giant water fight when the kids soaked Dad, and he suddenly found a loaded water gun under his chair that was newly gifted to him for the holiday? Yeah, that he’ll remember.

Name That Tool

Fathers day play

Let Dad take a seat, blindfold him, a place his open toolbox at his feet. One at a time, have the kids pick out a tool from the box and, without naming the tool, describe it to Dad. Dad must guess the tool according to the descriptions.

Buy a gift

Bring your kids to the gift store. Let them pick one for their dad as Father’s Day’s gift. Trust me, no matter what gift they pick, he will love it.

Shave” Dad

Shave dad!

It’s time to help dad shave his beard!!! Sit the dad in chairs in the backyard. Set up a collection of kid-friendly shaving supplies a few feet from each dad. Use a shaving bib for the dad to wear, whipped cream instead of shaving cream, and popsicle sticks as razors. Kids will race to gather the items, bring them back to where their dad is seated, foam up his face, and “shave” the dad with the Popsicle sticks. (If kids are old enough to use shaving cream and razors, let them do the real shaving. 😊

Finally, here’s our best wishes to all the fathers out there.

Hope Father’s Day brings you some time to relax and geek out in your favorite ways. Happy Father’s Day!
