  • Grown-Up S'mores

    It doesn't matter what the activity is -- the most important thing Dad wants for Father's Day is to spend time with you! Plan a backyard bonfire or curl up with a movie -- either way, simply scheduling family time will make his day special.

  • Plan a Father's Day Outing

    Whether it's a museum, a farmer's market, or a ball game, plan a trip to a nearby attraction to celebrate Father's Day. Choose something that fits Dad's personality -- after all, it is his day!

  • Cook Dinner with Dad

    Get the whole family involved in cooking Dad's favorite meal for a special Father's Day dinner. Even younger kids can help -- assign them easy tasks, such as setting the table or tossing the salad.

  • Enjoy the Outdoors Together

    Find a hiking trail, go for a bike ride, or head to a local park to enjoy the outdoors. As long as you're outside and spending time with Dad, he'll be sure to have a great Father's Day.

  • Give Dad Alone Time

    Whether it's watching football, taking a nap, or catching up on some light reading, Dad will love the chance to have a few hours for himself. It's Father's Day, so let Dad pick his activity for the day -- and then let him enjoy his alone time!

  • Spend One-on-One Time Together

    Take Dad out for a day date to your (or his!) place of choice. Milk shakes, burgers, a nice dinner -- it doesn't matter! The important part is spending one-on-one time on Father's Day.

  • Take a Trip to the Beach

    Take advantage of the warm weather and go on a fun trip to the beach. Dad will love the chance to relax and spend time together as a family on Father's Day.

  • Take a Fishing Trip

    What better way to spend Father's Day than doing what Dad loves best? A fishing trip can be as simple as throwing a rod in the local pond, but he'll love showing you the tricks of the trade.

  • Grill Outside with Dad

    Host a Father's Day barbecue or cookout to let Dad show off his grill master skills. Invite friends and family to come -- the more the merrier!
