Father’s Day Recipe Ideas for Kids

father's day

Even though a Father’s Day cookout may sound like complete joy, chances are that dad doesn’t want to spend his special day stuck behind a grill. Instead of expecting dad to head the family BBQ, check out these fab family picnic ideas that everyone can help out with. While the kiddos can’t cook with heat, coals or any other filled with fire mode, they can help you to prep and decorate these Father’s Day food picks.

Sandwich Bar

What’s dad’s favorite sandwich? If the kids aren’t sure, they can give him options. Set up a sandwich bar buffet with several different types of breads or rolls, lunch meat, salads (such as chicken or tuna), veggies, cheese and plenty of toppers. If you’re celebrating dad’s day outdoors, make sure to keep everything in the shade and chilled — especially anything containing meat, egg or dairy products.

Super-Dad Salad

Let the kids go wild, creating a salad that includes more than just greens. Get creative and ask your child what they think dad would like along with the traditional lettuce and tomatoes. This could include homemade croutons, a variety of peppers, sunflower seeds, shredded cheese, sliced steak/chicken, dressing or almost anything else that goes in a salad.

DAD Cookies

Bake your favorite cookie recipe, use a boxed mix or buy a dozen from the bakery (if you’re short on time). Give the kids frosting to write “DAD” onto the cookies, adding one letter to each cookie.
