There’s nothing better than spending quality time with your family, especially with your parents. And this year’s Father’s Day holiday is a great opportunity to do it. Whether you’re preparing a special day for your own dad or for your partner and kids to enjoy, you can plan a day filled with fun activities and new traditions that will make it more special every year. 

Starting your own traditions is a very fun and rewarding thing to do, and it creates a lovely bond between your family. Check below for some ideas of great activities you can do every year that can turn into a new family tradition!

Breakfast Together

If you both are interested in cooking or just really enjoy food, then having breakfast together may be a great idea. You can cook something special for dad, their favorite meal, or something they’ve been wanting to try for a while. 

You can prepare some easy recipes that are great for a breakfast in bed or take dad to a nearby coffee place to start the day. This is a great opportunity for you to spend quality time together. 

Traveling In Family

Traveling around with the family can be a really great experience for everybody. It’s the perfect opportunity to get out of the house to relax and recharge. You can travel to any special place your family likes going to, or explore new cities, which it’s pretty exciting too. 

Imagine taking a different road trip every year for Father’s Day, doesn’t it sound interesting? 

Make a quick search about interesting destinations near where you live, and take your dad or your whole family to enjoy a day out. 

Cinema At Home

Why go to the movies when you can have a movie night in the comfort of your own home? Spread some pillows and blankets on the couch and on the floor to have a large and comfortable space. Choose a good movie that dad has been interested in, and prepare a few snacks for the night. 

You can also choose an interesting title to watch again every year, such as cult classics or fun comedies, or simply pick the newest option on your streaming platform for something new. This way, a cinema night can be just as lovely and fun as any other activity you have in mind.

An Outdoor Family Get-Together

This is an event which can include the whole family, not only you and dad. Making something special on the outside of your house might expand your options to anything you want. 

You can have a barbecue with the close family, enjoy the swimming pool if the weather turns out to be nice, or have a simple dinner at night for the fun and comfort of the family. That’s a great way to spend the holiday with the family, catching up and having a really fun time all together.

Game Night

If you and your father are interested in fun games, whether it’s video games or actual board games, there are several options you can try for Father’s Day. There is a whole range of party games that can bring some fun and laughs to the holiday. 

Handmade Gifts

Nothing more lovely than handmade gifts, right? They are always well seen as a special act of love since you spend time thinking and making it specifically for the gifted person. If you have any artistic talent, it might not be just easy for you, but also amusing. 

Don’t forget that what matters is the intention. It’s okay if the gift doesn’t turn out great, as it will surely create new memories and show them just how much you care by spending the time, thought and effort to create something special. 

Go to An Event

Adding appointments such as watching a game or performance of an artist you both like on the Father's Day schedule may be a great experience if this type of event interests you. This is also a great chance of spending quality time with your father, and it can easily turn into a tradition that you repeat every year. 

Karaoke Night

Karaoke nights are not only for music lovers but for every type of person. Singing your favorite songs freely, even if you don’t do it that well, may turn out to be amusing for you and your dad. It’s a great chance for you to share a microphone with your dad while singing a good and classic song.

Adventures of All Types

This one is for the bravest and most adventurous families. What about trying a new experience each year? If you are into things such as climbing, trekking or fishing, why not try something like this to celebrate Father's Day

And even if this doesn’t seem like one of your dream tasks, new things once or twice can bring some fun by just changing up the routine.

If you need some ideas for a Father’s Day gift, here’s a great list of handmade options you can easily put together in no time. Let us know in the comments what are your plans for this year!
