With Father’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to think about how the kids can celebrate that great guy in their lives: Dad. For those of you looking to honor Dad without breaking the bank, consider these fun, free and meaningful activities that kids and dads can do together this Father’s Day.
Fun, Free Father’s Day Activities:
Create a family picture train. Many fathers find themselves with a little train lover or two in the house. Build on this passion by creating a family picture train. Cut out rectangles from paper and decorate as rail cars. Cut smaller circles and add for wheels. Then, find family pictures that are special and glue them onto each train car. Connect the train cars with yarn or paper.
Bake. Whether Dad dons the chef’s hat in the family regularly or not, Father’s Day is a great day to choose a recipe and dig in to creating something tasty to eat. Kids can do the measuring, adding and tasting.
Take a nature walk. Dad and the kids can take a walk down the street or around the backyard in search of interesting natural items. Collect these to take home and create a collage or a terrarium. If you’re in an urban area, head to an area park.
Create caricatures. Put the family’s art skills to work and have each family member draw a funny picture of Dad or each other.
Do yoga. There are many resources for family yoga online such as rainbow kids yoga. Take a look at fun poses that dads and kids can do together for fun and fitness.
Have a great Father’s Day and enjoy the special man in your life!
