Father’s Day is coming quick, and with a bit of planning, it’ll be a cinch to make him feel like the king of the hill.
Power Up for Breakfast
You have to start Dad’s day off right with a breakfast of champions. Does he like pancakes? Add a side of fruit to make them special. Is he a steak and eggs kind of guy? Serve them up with a glass of fresh-squeezed OJ.
Regardless of what he gets for breakfast, presentation is the key to making breakfast more than just a meal. Take a few minutes to decorate a placemat or napkin to show him how much he’s loved. There are printable placemats online, or you can color your own on a large sheet of paper. Dad won’t care which way you go. He’ll just be glad you thought of him.
Make a Card, Don’t Buy It
Anyone can spend 20 minutes at the drugstore to find a nice card for Father’s Day. Wouldn’t dad feel even better if you took that time to actually make him one? You’d be amazed at what you can do with crayons, markers, string, glitter, and whatever else you have lying around. You can also use cardstock paper to make a card that feels less homemade and more sturdy. Follow the tutorial, below, or click on the image link for step-by-step directions.
Spend Time Doing What He Likes
Now is when the real fun begins. Make a list of what dad enjoys, cut the items into strips of paper, and throw these ideas into Dad’s favorite hat. Ask him what he wants to do, and if he can’t come up with any ideas, ask him to draw a slip of paper. Tada! You now have something fun to do with him. Fishing, a round of golf, a movie, a walk, and other activities are sure to be a fun way to spend time with the special father figure in your life.
