What To Do On Father’s Day 2023?

If you’re stuck for ideas on what to do for Father’s Day tomorrow, we’ve got you. Celebrate Dad with one of these fun family activities, from a breakfast picnic and fort building to Didicar races! 

1. Set up a breakfast picnic

Grab a blanket, some juice and a few pastries (or whatever Dad loves to eat for brekkie!) and surprise the family with a picnic in the garden or a local park or beach. Starting Father’s Day with this really thoughtful family activity is sure to leave you with lots of special memories. And don’t worry if it rains, just switch it up for an indoor picnic on the floor of your lounge! 

2. Build a fort

First, gather your fort building supplies. Find pillows, bed sheets, sofa cushions, chairs and clothes pegs (to secure everything in place), then get creative! Kids love building forts, but it’s also a brilliant bonding experience as you work together to construct your castle. Once built, lay a duvet down inside and snuggle up for storytime!

3. Go head-to-head in a Didicar race

Did you know that Didicars can take weights of up to 120kg? That means grown-ups can have a go, too! Whether you’re 3 or 103, Didicar is a thrilling ride on toy that’s super strong and sturdy, and built to withstand years of zoomies! This Father’s Day, you could challenge each other to a Didicar race (guaranteed to deliver some laughs). If you only have one of our ride on cars between you, take it in turns and time each other to see who reaches the finish line fastest.

4. Create a family scrapbook

Print off a bunch of photos of your family throughout the years and sit down together for an hour of scrapbooking. Set up a craft table with glitter, coloured pens and stickers, lay out the photos, then ask your littlen to help you stick them in and decorate the scrapbook however they like. This is a great chance to look back at some of your favourite memories together and will leave Dad with a wonderful present to enjoy for years to come. 

5. Have a movie night in the garden

Set up a projector and screen in the back garden for a magical movie night under the stars. Make it cosy with lots of warm blankets and cushions; you could even string some fairy lights around the screen to make it extra snuggly. Now, all you have left to do is pick a film the whole family will enjoy (and don’t forget the snacks!).
