Fun Ideas for Father’s Day: Simple Ways to Make Dad Feel Special and a Cool Contest

Whoo! June is off to a sunny start, isn’t it?

Father’s Day is right around the corner and since we had so much fun sharing fun Mother’s Day activities, it is only natural that we’d want to talk about fun ideas for Father’s Day.

Here are some simple and sweet ways to make Dad feel really special and loved:

1. Make a Cool Card for Dad

Well, the easiest and also, the sweetest thing that kids can do is make a special card for Dad. Set your toddler up with some paint and cardstock and let him make a handprint card and then, initial his name inside, after you write a special message.

If painting is not your toddler’s cuppa milk, let him stick on a photo of Dad and him on the front of the card; or paste bits of paper in the shape of a football, baseball or whatever is Dad’s favorite sport.

2. Dad and Me Day

This is another super-simple way to make Father’s Day special. Let father and kids hang out together the whole day while you hang back from checking, complaining or nagging. Let them do what they’d love to do together. Whether it is watching a movie or playing in the pool or heading out to the mall for some toy shopping and ice cream eating, let the kids have a whole day with Dad doing just what both of them like.

3. Create a Father’s Day All Year Round Calendar

You know how Dad carries a photo of the kids in his wallet and whips it out all the time, well, take it a step further and along with the kids, choose some photos of them and Dad, and compile it into a photo calendar for his office or desk. If you need a cool deal as well, check out Lifephoto who’re offering a FREE photo calendar to everyone on their FB page!

4. Make a Father’s Day Meal

They say, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. This Father’s Day, let the kids make Dad feel special by cooking him a special meal, with your supervision, of course. It can be something as simple as sandwiches and smoothies or homemade cookies and milk, but let it be a meal in which the little ones are involved, all the way through.

 How will you be making Father’s Day special for the most special man in your kids’ life?

About pottytots

I am a mom of three that was having quite a challenge potty training my third child. I tried everything from books on the market to bribing my little one. As a teacher, I knew that I should have something visual that a little one could understand, so I drew my first little potty chart with the 6 essential steps to potty training. When I made the little girl look just like my daughter, she LOVED it. Believing that learning should be FUN, I added some potty humor and some silly songs and we found a formula for success. When I started sharing this idea and making potty charts for friends and family, I knew we had a great idea for a potty training program that could help others. Potty Tots was born!
