What you can do with your dad for Father's Day

With Fathers Day just around the corner, (Sunday, 21st of June - You're welcome), many of us are planning ways to make it a special day for our dad.

Considering the current lockdown restrictions, and the most obvious fact that everywhere is closed!


Here are 5 ways you can start planning for Fathers Day!


1. Plan a Surprise Picnic for the family


Get the picnic basket, the blanket and the drinks out!

You can cook his favourites (or order it, he doesn't need to know).


Take into account the maximum number of gathering currently allowed in your region, and also consider social distancing rules if you live in different households.





2. Plan a DIY session together


If your dad is into fixing (breaking and then fixing) things around the house, then this is a great way to keep him busy!

Remember to let him lead! - It's his gift, after all, so you can let him do it his way (even if it's not what the instruction states).

He will appreciate having a sidekick and the thought that went into it!



3. It's a good time to go for a walk


With the air improving since the report of less air pollution, it's a great time to go for a bit of an adventure with your dad,

You can explore your local area or include it as part of a road trip.

You can also prepare a meal ready for after the walk to round up the day.



4. Family Games night

If your dad is not much of a fan of walking or doing anything outside the house, this might be the one.

Is he a lover of board games? - if he is, why not host a competitive family games night!

Get him a birthday hat and his favourite drink.

Gather the traditional games together and have a battle! - With this one, you don't have to feel bad if you beat him!

It brings more challenge to the game and makes it more interesting!


5. Favourite show or sport re-run

How about a night of sports re-runs!

Get the popcorn out and make sure the tv remote still works!

Get his favourite sport and watch 'the best of'.

This can last as long as you want it to - You can focus on highlights or entire shows/games.



*Bonus*

Dads workout too! and whilst the gyms are closed, you can get him some workout equipments he can use at home! - Shop Resistance Bands


We hope this has given you some ideas on how you can make fathers day special for your dad, despite the lockdown. Whatever you decide to do, make sure dad is at the heart of it.

He deserves to feel special on all days, especially on Fathers Day!
