Father’s Day is a very important day of the year; it is a day all about dad, a day when you are given the chance to thank your dad for everything he does for you the other 364 days of the year. Just because this year is “unique” it does not mean that you can’t make this Father’s Day one of the most memorable Father’s Days yet!
Go Fishing or Go for a Hike
If your dad enjoys the outdoors (and let’s face it, most dads do) take your dad on a day-long fishing trip or go for a long hike. These are both activities that allow you to practice social distancing, and who knows, you may even catch dinner! And if that bait shop is closed, no worries, cut up raw hot dog pieces make great lures.Shop Father's Day Cards Collection
Take A Virtual Tour
We all have that one museum we love or that one place we always wanted to visit but could never afford. During the quarantine, as many museums have been closed they have set up free virtual tours so that patrons might still be able to enjoy their treasures. This Father’s Day, find a virtual tour of your dad’s favorite museum, set the tour up on your smart TV, and invite your dad to come to see his favorite artist. If you want to make it even more special, find a walking tour of the city the museum is located in and start with that. (extra points if you do research in advance and are able to expand on the info the tour guide provides.)
Give Dad A Card
Moms get a beautiful card and flowers for Mother’s Day, but dads are often overlooked when it comes to getting a card with a thoughtful message inside. This Father’s Day give your dad a Father’s Day card with a handwritten message inside that will forever remind dad of what he means to you. If your dad likes art, give him a quilled card and a frame so that he can hang the card and enjoy it year-round.
Play Catch and Grill
Backyard grilling is one of those “dad” activities that every dad loves to do. This Father’s Day, invite a few close family members or friends (no more than 3 so that you can still practice some social distancing) and have a backyard BBQ with your dad. Make this BBQ even more special by giving your dad a new glove and ball and inviting him to play a little catch with you while the meat is grilling. Your dad will love it!
Even though you may not be able to enjoy the traditional Father’s Day activities this Father’s Day there are still many “social distancing friendly” activities that you can do with your dad and a few close friends that your dad will love and will cherish for years to come.
