Father’s Day Fun: Creative Ways to Make any Dad Feel Special

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to celebrate the fathers in our lives. If you're looking for ways to pamper a deserving dad this weekend but haven't settled on a plan yet, don’t worry: We at Xplora have compiled a list to help you surprise your everyday superhero! Whether the dad you're celebrating has specific hobbies or isn't able to be physically present this Sunday, we've got ideas to make this Father’s Day memorable.

Choose from these suggestions based on your time and resources to create a joyful day for the entire family. These ideas range from quick activities to more elaborate plans, ensuring there's something to do for every family.

Outdoor Activities

  • Spend the day outdoors exploring nature with the entire family. Pack a picnic with all of Dad’s favorite snacks and enjoy a meal surrounded by beautiful scenery.
  • If you want to explore nature a little bit closer to home, you can set up a tent in the backyard and have a camping night complete with a bonfire, s’mores, and share stories under the stars.

Game Night Extravaganza

  • Organize a game night with Dad’s favorite board games, card games, or video games. Try to make it a friendly competition with prizes for the winner or winner teams.
  • If the dad in question loves sports, try to create your own sports tournament for the entire family! Bring out a football, frisbee, or any sport he enjoys for some fun and bonding, and let the kids collect some coins from our activity platform!


Craft and Create

  • Choose a DIY project that Dad has been wanting to do, whether it’s building a birdhouse, starting a garden, or painting a room. All men on deck, here every family member can contribute with what they can! 
  • Whether it’s breakfast in bed or a barbecue dinner, cooking together can be a fun and rewarding way to bond for any family.

Virtual Celebration

  • If the dad in question happens to be out of town or unavailable, the world of technology now makes it possible to organize virtual celebrations. Either if it is cooking the same meal together over a video call, playing online games or watching movies, just taking time to show that your dad or maybe even your granddad is in your thoughts even if they are far away can mean a lot. The best thing? You can stay in touch with long distance family members without social media! If your kids have the Xplora X6Play smartwatch, they can keep dad and other contacts updated from their watch, whether it’s from the living room or across the country.

Simple Gestures

  • Allow Dad to sleep in as long as he wants this Sunday. Consider bringing him breakfast in bed once he wakes up. A less stressful day is one of the best gifts you can offer, and another way to reduce stress is by 
  • Write a heartfelt letter expressing your gratitude and love for a dad or granddad. Include a list of things you appreciate about him, and maybe note a few things he has done that have had an impact on you and/or your loved ones.
  • A hug is one of the best gifts to give and receive, and it’s completely free. Simple gestures often carry the most meaning.

By incorporating some of these ideas into your Father’s Day plans, you’re sure to create a memorable celebration for any dad. Enjoy the day, and let your loved ones know how much they mean to you!
