Top 5 Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day


Are you ready for Father’s Day this weekend?  Looking for a special way to celebrate a father or father figure who has impacted your life?  Check out some of these fun activities to celebrate this weekend:

Golf or Putt Putt: Whether Dad is a pro on the golf course or more of an ace at putt-putt, an afternoon of golf is fun for fathers and kids alike. Stick with miniature golf for younger kids.  Going to the driving range is a great activity if Dad wants to start teaching the kids the “real” game.

Have a Movie Night: Order a pizza or make Dad’s favorite pizza and turn on a family-friendly movie that he’ll love. It’s the perfect ending to a fantastic Father’s Day.  This weekend in Motion (1st – 5th grade) we will be watching clips from the movie The Incredibles as we learn more about unity.  This is a movie dads and the entire family will love.  Download an advanced copy of this weekend’s “The Family Forecast” to plan a Father’s Day movie night based on The Incredibles.

Take Him Out to a Ball Game:  America’s favorite pastime is always a crowd-pleaser. Check out the Charlotte Knights, a local minor league team, who are playing home games beginning Thursday, June 14 through Sunday, June 17.

Take a Hike: If your dad loves the great outdoors, find a local hiking or walking trail that the entire family will enjoy. Check out these sites to find trails and trail reviews:

Do Something Nice:  Celebrate all your dad has done for you by returning the favor. Make him his favorite dinner or breakfast in bed. Wash his car. Clean out the garage. Get creative!
