How To Celebrate Parents’ Day As a Family
How should you celebrate Parents’ Day? If you’re looking for a way for your family to mark this special day, check out these fun-filled activity ideas!
Set up an obstacle course, choose teams, and create your own backyard Olympics. The kids can make medals to hand out at the end of the games. Cover cardboard in kitchen foil, punch a hole at the top and thread a ribbon through to make special Parents’ Day Olympics awards.
Family Movie Night
Choose movies that feature a Parents’ Day theme. The flicks should focus on parents, children and families. Set up a popcorn bar, make movie tickets and spend a special night in as a family.
Parents’ Day Picnic
Pack a picnic and eat an outdoor lunch in your backyard or a local park. It’s a day to celebrate parents—and that means the grown-ups get to pick the picnic menu! Share your favorite foods with your kiddos and help them to pack a picnic basket. Don’t forget a soft blanket, sunscreen and a few fun games to play on your day of family fun.
Bake a Cake
Instead of a store-bought cake, mark this day with homemade baked goods. The family can work together to bake a Parents’ Day cake. Let the kids decorate the cake with a special “parents only” message.
