5 Memorable Father's Day Ideas for Kids

Father's Day is just around the corner. We look back on how they carry you on their shoulders, check for the Boogeyman under your bed, or teach you how to ride a bike.

Oh, how nostalgic those memories are!

Father's Day is a day dedicated to honoring the men in our lives. This falls on the third Sunday of June in the US and many other countries.

Why should kids celebrate this day? Simple! Whether you're a teacher or a mom, we must teach children the importance of expressing gratitude to their fathers and father figures. 

Read along to find out how many kids can acknowledge their dads with these super dad ideas that your kids can do on Father's Day.


We often overlook the sacrifices and contributions of our fathers and male figures to our lives. Father's Day allows us to show and express our love, adoration, and gratitude to these special individuals.

This day acknowledges our appreciation of the role of the father, both at home and in society. Here's a 'lil glimpse of the history of this special day. 

On June 19, 1910, Sonora Dodd is said to have founded the first Father's Day in Spokane, Washington. Their single-parent father raised Sonora and her five siblings. She believed that, since Mother's Day was already celebrated, a day to honor fathers should be observed as well. 

Despite the efforts of subsequent US Presidents, it was President Nixon who made Father's Day a legal national holiday in 1972. 


Nowadays, young kids can show their fathers how important they are in their lives and how much they influence them this Father's Day. Here are my suggestions: 

1. Make an appreciation card/drawing

    A handmade card is cherished by every dad. Kids can make a note of some of the things they appreciate about their father or they can make a drawing of their dad doing something together. 
    Dads will appreciate whatever their children create especially if it's personalized and came from the heart. 

2. Watch favorite movie with dad

    Spend some time with your family's favorite guy this Father's Day by watching classic films together! Whether you want to laugh or feel nostalgic, watching kid-friendly movies with your father should do the trick!

3. Spend time with dad playing sports or doing hobbies

    Because Father's Day falls in June, the weather is likely to be nice so father-child activities are a must. 
    You can include outdoor activities such as biking, jogging, playing basketball or soccer, flying kits, or simply taking the dog for a walk. 

4. Treat Dad like a King

    Let the kids give their Dad a back or foot massage for a relaxing time on the couch while he watches TV. You can also encourage your kids to help you cook his favorite meal or bake his most-loved dessert.
    Whatever it is, make sure to enlighten your kids to do something special for their dad this Father's Day!

5. Answer Printable Worksheets Together

    Finally, no Father's Day celebration is complete without some fun activities for the dads and their children!
