Father’s Day is the perfect time to show Dad just how much he’s appreciated and let everyone know that your Dad is the best!
It’s Dad’s day to be the centre of attention and what better way to do that than to throw him a ‘Father’s Day’ Party?
- Have a breakfast party. If dad’s favourite meal of the day is breakfast, why not have a party that serves all of his favourite breakfast dishes?
- Have a dessert party if dad has a sweet tooth. Have a dessert bar with all of his favourites. Serve his favourite ice cream at the party with a variety of toppings he can choose to top off his dessert. Bake his favourite cake or other dessert he enjoys.
- The kids can also act out a play showing why the favourite things they love about dad and act it out or it can be a comedy and they can act out all of dad’s funny (or annoying) habits.
- Let the kids sing or have a concert for dad using instruments or household items you have that can “make” music.
- Is dad king of the castle at your house? Have a “Dad is King” party where he’ll be treated like royalty. Roll out a red carpet for him and signal his entrance by blowing some party horns. Drop a bag of confetti on him or release some balloons around him. Let him feast on his favorite food and relax while he gets the royal treatment with things like foot rub and back massage, Have the kids make him a crown to wear.
- Is dad more like a superhero? Have a “Superhero” party including a cape for dad, maybe a mask, a superhero cake, watch his favourite superhero cartoon or movie and play some games. You can print out a comic book cover on edible printing paper and place it on the cake, too.
- Is dad a sports fan? Have a party with a “sports theme” and don’t forget to award him a trophy, plaque or medal. Take him to the park for the party and play his favorite sport with him. Sign a ball or bat that says it belongs to world’s best dad.
