THESE ideas are great for any weekend of the year, to be honest.

SERVE BREAKFAST IN BED

Dad deserves a hearty breakfast right when he wakes up! Have the children help you make a delicious meal for breakfast in bed.

FIND A PICNIC SPOT

There’s no reason you can’t head outdoors for a fun family meal. Surprise dad by packing his favourite foods, and stake out a spot at a local park.

GO CAMPING

There’s so much exploring and bonding to be had on a camping trip. Treat dad to a great outdoor getaway by helping him pitch a tent, make some s’mores, and do a little stargazing.

ATTEND A GAME

If dad is a big sports fan, there’s no better way to spend Father’s Day than at his favourite team’s game.

VISIT A MUSEUM

Perhaps your man wants to do some learning on his special day, so take him and the kids to a local museum with an exciting exhibit.

HEAD TO AN AMUSEMENT PARK

Take a drive to the closest theme park and spend the entire day there with the family. From thrilling roller-coaster rides to great food, it’s a place where any father can act like a kid again.

TAKE THE WHOLE FAMILY OUT FOR A BEACH DAY

Father’s Day is a great time to get outside and soak up the sunshine. Enjoy a beautiful day outside by taking the entire family to the beach and better yet, take a picnic to share for lunch as well.

ENJOY A BEER TASTING

Toast your dad at a local beer-tasting event that also works as a last-minute Father’s Day gift.

MAKE HIM A FATHER’S DAY BRUNCH

Make dad’s day by serving him the ultimate brunch, from ricotta pancakes to a mouth-watering waffle sandwich.

PLAN A FISHING TRIP

An angler dad would love nothing more than celebrating Father’s Day at a local fishing hole. You’ll both love the chance to teach the littles something new while spending the day outside in nature.

HOST A BRAAI PARTY

Get the entire family together for a mini reunion on Father’s Day. To make the braai extra special, try cooking one of the best braai recipes from across the country.

EMBRACE AN OUTDOOR ADVENTURE

Take in the great outdoors by walking through the park, hiking at a nearby trail, or going for a bike ride through a reserve. Both you and your dad will enjoy the chance to spend some quality family time together without the distractions found at home.

TREAT HIM TO A SPA DAY

Parenting obviously isn’t an easy task, and if your dad — or partner — deserves relaxation time, schedule a massage for him at your favourite spa spot.

TAKE A WEEKEND ROAD TRIP

Maybe you need to go the distance to make the day memorable for dad. Plan a road trip to a nearby small town or surprise him with plane tickets to a city on his bucket list.

PLAY A ROUND OF MINI GOLF

If your man is a golfer, he’ll enjoy going out with you and the kids to a miniature golf course.
