Are your kids looking for the perfect thing for Father’s Day?
It might not be a thing at all, but rather something fun to do together.
In this article I’ll share our favorite ideas for simple, fun activities to do with Dad on Father’s Day.
Why an Activity as a Father’s Day Gift?
Stop shopping for the “perfect” Father’s Day gift! We asked around, clarified and researched to discover an amazing fact: Most dads don’t want a tie (or cologne, or any article of clothing) for Father’s Day. That’s no surprise.
But what do they want? Most dads want to do something as a family (and a day off from the “honey-do” list) on their special day. They want quality time with the family, planned and organized by Mom and the kids!
So give Dad what he wants—a fun family activity. You’re sure to find something he’ll love to do in the suggestions below.

In this article you’ll find 10 scavenger hunt ideas (with printable checklists) that you can do right now with your kids. And I’ll share tips and tricks to help you create your own scavenger hunt anytime, anywhere.
Why a Scavenger Hunt?
Scavenger hunts are fun! They add something extra to ordinary events and make them memorable.
They’re easy to create and can be tailored to any theme, any age, any place. Scavenger hunts are usually thought of for parties or other large groups, but they’re just as fun for small families or even individual children.
A scavenger hunt adds an element of competition, urgency and excitement to any everyday event and makes it something special. They’re great for parties, but equally fun for rainy days, car trips, visits to new places, meeting new people or any time kids get bored. You can make almost anything—even chores—into a game by turning it into a scavenger hunt.
