Things to do at home this Father’s Day

We know Father’s Day is a bit different this year.

The limitation of spending time outdoors poses an impact on the yearly traditions and festivities, but despite the prominent impact COVID-19 is having on the world, we’ve concocted a series of activities and games to enjoy this momentous day. With lockdown and social distancing regulations still in effect, there are many ways to safely celebrate within the comfort of your own home…

Play some games!

What better way to spend Father’s Day then get to know your father better with a good old pop quiz!
Don’t let the fun stop there! Games are WAY more fun when there’s a prize to win, or if there’s a penalty. Get creative – whoever scores the lowest points has to forfeit!
Take turns to ask about 5-10 questions and find out how well you know each other.

Questions may include:

  • ‘What’s my favourite colour?’
  • ‘What is my favourite movie?’
  • ‘Name 3 things in my wallet?’ (This one also catches out anyone who’s been snooping!)

Baking time!

Baking is a fun and easy activity that keep children occupied, with a feeling of accomplishment at the end! Grab an apron (and funky hats to look the part) and get stuck in!

Why not give Stella Tarakson’s Hercules’ Honey Cakes recipe a go, inspired by our Hopeless Heroes books.
Here are a few more ideas to get you started!

  • Cake
  • Cookies
  • Brownies
  • Cupcakes
  • Pancakes

TikTok Time!

TikTik has created a whole new era of Dad Dancing. Dads, it’s time to bust out the moves and get the whole family involved in challenges! Here are some kids vs. parents dance challenges for you to try out.

Movie time!

Once everyone is filled with food and all tired out, kick back, relax and unwind with a nice family-friendly movie! Nothing is needed here other than a TV and maybe some snacks – what is a movie without popcorn?

Here is a fantastic range of Father’s Day-friendly movies to pick from:

  • The Incredibles
  • Cheaper by the Dozen
  • Finding Nemo
  • The Lion King
  • Daddy Day Care

Don’t forget to have fun and stay safe this Father’s Day!
