5 Fun-filled Father’s Day Parent-Child Activities

Dad and child

Get some daddy-daughter or daddy-son bonding time in on Father’s Day! How? With a few fun (but, simple) activities, you can spend time with the kids and celebrate this holiday that’s all about dad.

If you’re looking for a Father’s Day parent-child activity, try:

A collaborative art activity.

Cut out family pictures and glue together a collage, draw a father-child portrait together or sculpt a mini version of your house together.

Make a memory book.

Use a notebook, blank journal, sketchbook or album to create a scrapbook-style memory book. Fill it with keepsakes from activities that the two of you have done together (such as movie or baseball ticket stubs), photos, drawings and special letters that you write to one another.

Cook a meal.

Pick a breakfast, lunch or dinner that is easy enough for your child to help with. Keep in mind, your kiddo doesn’t have to ‘cook’ the whole meal. If you have a younger child, he can help measure and mix ingredients. Older kids can take a larger role in the prep-work and the actual cooking.

Go on a nature walk.

Find a trail, go to the local park or take a trip through the woods. Add to the experience with a mid-trek picnic or bring your bikes along for a ride. If you’re lucky enough to live by the ocean or a lake, go for a sand-side stroll together.

Play in the backyard.

Go beyond a typical day of outdoor play and stage an obstacle course or have a family relay race. Set up baby pools (you can even fill them with mud) to splash through, run around obstacles (such as plants) and create an army crawl bath through the grass!
