Parents’ Day 2018: Ideas for a Family Day
Mother’s Day and Father’s Day may be staples for celebrating parents, but not every family fits into the typical mom, dad, child mold. And here’s where Parents’ Day comes in. Whether your kiddo just wants to celebrate you or they have a special parental figure/step-parent who missed out on Mother’s of Father’s Day, check out these family-fun activities!
Hold an annual family soccer, football, kickball, volleyball, softball or any other game. Make special t-shirts for each team/family member too! You can order graphic shirts with a message that you design on the front or the back (such as, “Parent’s Day!”) or make your own with fabric markers.
Hold a movie night with the entire family. You can approach this activity one of two ways — you can pick the parent’s favorite film or create your own family movie by editing together video clips of special events, holidays, birthdays and other occasions.
Create a catered meal, at home. The kids can make a menu, drawing pictures of the dinner of choice. Older children can write out the menu, including yummy descriptions. Let the kids help making the meal in age-appropriate ways. That means younger kids can measure and mix while tweens and teens take on more of a “chef” role.
