Fun Activities for Father's Day

Father’s Day is right around the corner, which means it’s time to show the “old man” some affection. Showing your dad how much you appreciate him is can sometimes be a difficult proposition. The typical dad doesn’t have a go-to gift list, which sometimes requires some creativity for the kids. AJ Danboise knows how difficult (and important) it is to appropriately honor him, which is why we have collected some fun activities for Father's Day in Michigan this year!

Father's Day Activity Ideas

Take Him to a Golf Course

  • Although a common stereotype, golfing combines relaxation and concentration in an outdoor activity. It also allows for some quality bonding time.
  • Playing an 18-hole course with your dad ensures some friendly competition - along with some healthy physical activity.
  • You can also go to a driving range and challenge your dad to see who can hit the golf ball the farthest.

Throw a Cookout

  • When a dad sees a grill, a spatula, and some raw meat, something primal begins to take over. Why not set up a cookout with everything he’ll need to grill for the family?
  • Throwing a cookout for Father’s Day is a great way to bring friends and family together. Make sure to invite another “cook” for backup in case dad decides he’d rather have someone else grill.
  • Cookouts combine the openness of the outdoors and the comfort of your home. Gift dad with some new grill accessories to add to the celebration – ensuring more outdoor fun in the future.
  • Helping your dad with prepping and grilling food is another way to spend quality time together. Consider making it a private affair with just yourself and dad.

Have a Fishing Trip

  • Waking up at 6 A.M. doesn’t seem like much fun, except when it’s for fishing.
  • Take your dad out to the nearest fishing spot and spend some telling stories and catching fish.
  • If your dad is an avid fisherman, gift him with some new fishing accessories once you are on the water.
  • Rent a boat (with a skipper) for the day so you and dad can relax while fishing.
  • Make it a fishing weekend with a cabin by the lake. Surprise him with additional friends and family.

Give Your Dad the Perfect Alone Time

  • Sometimes, dad just wants a nap. Is your dad overworked? Maybe just giving him a day of rest would be ideal.
  • Order dad his favorite comfort food, make his favorite drink, and let him binge his favorite TV show or sporting event.
  • Plan an outing for the rest the rest of the family so dad can enjoy his day in quiet.
