Coming up with the best things to do on Father’s Day can be a challenge, especially if you find yourself falling into a predictable pattern. Whether Dad has enough neck ties to wrap around the Earth or too many golf-related knickknacks, it might be time to shake things up! This year, try something new with these creative Father’s Day ideas and activities, each paired with a beautiful greeting card from Falling Leaf Card Co.!
Host a Game Night
From a casual poker game to Scrabble or Monopoly, get together and play as a family. Fun, party-style video games are also a great option, such as 1-2 Switch (for the new Nintendo Switch system), or Jackbox Party Pack and Just Dance (available on a variety of consoles).
Be sure to have plenty of snacks and refreshments! And for the greeting card, look for something that the whole family can share, such as our Two Shells Father’s Day Card: Happy Father’s Day Dad, I hope today you are reminded of the blessing you are to our family. We love you.
Get Fit for Father’s Day
Whether Dad is already into fitness or looking to start, Father’s Day can be a great opportunity to celebrate good health! Go for a bike ride together, hike a nearby mountain or nature trail, or try something new. Some creative Father’s Day ideas for fitness include signing up for a beginner’s yoga class, visiting a trampoline park or joining a 5k “fun run,” such as the Color Run, Bubble Run, or Electric Run.
If you’re looking for a greeting card that’s a perfect fit, try something that celebrates strength, such as our Downy Woodpecker Father’s Day Card: To my strong and loving father—Happy Father’s Day.
Celebrate with Live Music
It’s always fun to enjoy live music with Dad! Check websites such as Livenation.com or apps like BandsinTown to see when and where you can catch his favorite artists. Or, if you’re looking for a more affordable alternative, check out your local venues, cafes, and music halls for upcoming shows. Smaller venues often provide quality entertainment for a minimal cover charge if not for free! This creative Father’s Day activity is also a great way to support local businesses and talent—and you may just find a new band that you and your family will fall in love with.
Whether or not you get to see a rock n’ roll legend, remind Dad that he’s your favorite rockstar with a greeting card like our Blue Conch Father’s Day Card: Dad—Thank you for being a role model and leader in my life. I’ve learned so much from you. Happy Father’s Day.
Arts, Crafts, and Recycling
If you’re looking for a creative Father’s Day idea that’s even more unexpected, remember that the best activities can be hand-made or even recycled! Turn some of Dad’s old t-shirts into a quilt, or transform some of his old ties into a bouquet of fabric roses. Try some simple woodworking, or think of a home improvement project that you can do together.
Of course, you can still capture the feeling of a hand-made gift without getting too hands-on. If you’re looking for something artistic, consider one of our unique wall prints, which are available in an assortment of hand-painted designs. Our Blue Ridge Mountain Wall Print and Yellow Mountains Wall Print are great for Father’s Day—and you can even pair your gift with the matching card!
Happy Father’s Day from Falling Leaf Card Co.
Our fathers inspire us to be independent and inventive, so this year, celebrate your creativity! Whatever gift you choose, spend some quality time with your father and enjoy the special presence he has in your family.
