Top ways to spend the day with Dad for Father’s Day

Father’s Day – Sunday 6th of September, 2020.

Father’s Day is just around the corner — which means it’s almost time to celebrate Dad on his extra special day! Spend quality time with Dad doing these fun activities he’ll absolutely love.

Serve Dad an all-star brunch

The best way to start off Father’s Day? A table full of all of Dad’s favorite brunch recipes! Spoil him with an amazing spread of yummy pancakes, his favourite eggs, fruit and of course, his morning coffee. If Dad loves the outdoors, why not grab a picnic blanket and then head out to the garden to enjoy your brunch!

Go Fishing

Fishing is a wonderful bonding activity for Dads to share with their kids. No fancy boats or gear are needed. Simply head down to the beach, river or breakwall with some rods and bait and hope that the fish are biting!

Go camping

Whether you head to a campsite for the weekend, or decide to set up a tent in your own back garden, Dad will love roasting marshmallows and telling stories around the campfire. Dust off the bikes bring them along for a nature ride exploring the nearby national park. If you end up beachside and Dad’s a keen surfer, bring the boards along for some salty adventures.

Have a family games night

Let Dad flaunt his competitive side with the best board games for the whole family. Classic childhood favourites are Jenga, charades, and Monopoly. If Dad loves trivia and brain teasers, you can even host a family trivia night!

Fire up the BBQ

Let’s face it, Dad’s love nothing more than firing up the BBQ and enjoying a feed outside with the whole family! Grab some tasty cuts of meat from the local butcher and invite the immediate family around to all celebrate the day together. Spend the evening around the fire pit reminiscing on good times and Dad’s old stories.
