Sometimes it can be hard to plan Father’s Day activities that are meaningful and memorable to do with your dad. With it just around the corner there isn’t much time left to organise things, so we’ve come up with a list of 12 of our favourite Father’s Day activities so you don’t have to!
1. Start a Project
A good Father’s Day activity is to start a project with your dad that allows the both of you to spend some quality time together while creating something useful! This could be a clock, a birdhouse or a new side table. Here are some easy to follow instructions for a project you can start!
2. Go to a Sporting Event
