Father’s Day is Almost Here! Here Are Some Great Ideas for Celebrating

Father's Day is Almost Here! Here Are Some Great Ideas for Celebrating

This weekend, we want to celebrate dad! These ideas might get our creative juices flowing

Father’s Day is almost here! You probably have your gift ready to go, but you might still be trying to plan the perfect day. We want to help.  Here are a few ideas to make dad’s day extra special this Sunday.

Let him relax.

Father’s Day is supposed to celebrate dad, not stress him out! Let him get what he needs today. If he’s had a draining week, don’t force the whole family to gear up for an activity-packed day. Pay attention to his wants and plan accordingly.

Applaud him.

Gather your family together, even if that means electronically, and write down some of the reasons you’re thankful for dad. Having these tangible reminders can encourage him throughout the rest of the year!

Create space for memories.

We live in a fast-paced world; why not use Father’s Day to slow down and really be present with your dad? Choose an activity that creates space, like a calm day of fishing or a leisurely picnic in the park.

Some of my favorite Father’s Days.

A lot of my recent memories sharing Father’s Day with my dad involve fussing over him.  Not so much a gift per se, but a gift of time and attention.  I love to cook and bake so Father’s Day gives me a really good excuse to make my Dad some of his favorite dishes and especially, dessert.  He keeps me company in the kitchen that he shares with my mother, his wife of 61 years.  We reminisce as I am preparing the meal and baking the cake, or brownies, or lemon bars.  Those moments are some of the most sentimental ones for me.

Happy Father’s Day to all the incredible dads out there from The Maria Sanchez Show! If you’re looking for something to stimulate your conversations this Father’s Day, tune into our show Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown at 4:00 p.m. PDT/7:00 p.m. EDT.
