Tips to Make Dad Feel Special on Father's Day
Here are some ways to make him feel extra-special:
- Since dad is king for the day on Father's Day, have your kids make a construction paper crown and spend the day doing his bidding. It's probably best to take the crown away after Father's Day is over, though. You don't want him to forget who's really in charge.
- Serve him a special Father's Day breakfast in bed (with his favorite foods, of course!).
- Write him a letter thanking him for all that he does for the family.
- Take him out to his favorite restaurant to celebrate Father's Day.
- Shower him with gifts—some new gadgets, sports gear, a DVD of his favorite movie, or a meaningful book.
- Homemade presents are sometimes the best. Have the kids decorate a picture frame for him and present him with a family portrait. Or have them decorate a t-shirt with their handprints and messages to dad.
- Make a "Best Dad Award" and present it to him in a special ceremony.
- Make a Father's Day album. Be sure to include lots of pictures of family fun times and vacations as well as some photos from Father's Days throughout the years.
- Make a Father's Day coupon book good for "one hug," "one kiss," "a foot rub," "a romantic evening" or "one guy's night out." Be creative!
