Whether the pandemic, distance, or work stand in the way of celebrating Father’s Day, there are a few ways to help celebrate this day with your loved ones. From outdoor activities to virtual parties, you can find the perfect solution to spending time with your dad this Sunday.
Send over breakfast in bed.
Nothing says “I love you” like a basket bursting with breakfast goodies. If you can’t see dad in person today, prepare a feast to go and send it through a private delivery service.
Learn something new.
If dad’s been complaining that his brain is starting to rot from too much time at home, an all-access pass to MasterClass might be just what he needs to get the gray matter pumping again. He’ll be able to join fascinating classes taught by experts in sports, cooking, gardening, photography, history and more.
Take a bike ride together.
Get outside and enjoy the glorious spring weather together with a safe and socially distant bike ride.
Take a virtual trip.
You might be stuck at home, but that doesn’t mean you can’t tour the world! Get up close and personal with the giant pandas through special panda cameras at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, tour the Cincinnati Zoo from the comfort of your couch, or check out the koalas and kangaroos at the San Diego Zoo. For something really out there, you can even take a virtual walk on Mars! If you’re celebrating with dad remotely, be sure to FaceTime while both of you tour to make it a trip you take together.
Host a dad joke contest.
Nobody loves a punny joke like dad! Bring out the giggles this Father’s Day by hosting a dad joke contest on Zoom. Invite the extended family and all of dad’s best buddies to join in. Give everyone three minutes on air to share their best dad jokes. The comedian who gets the most laughs wins!
Watch a concert together.
Annual music festivals have been canceled all over the country, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a rocking performance by dad’s favorite band. Check out this list of live-streaming musical events taking place during COVID-19, or search for dad’s favorite performers on YouTube.
Throw a beer-tasting party.
Stock up on dad’s favorite brews for a fun evening of beer! If dad’s quarantining alone, send him his own stash of bottles and open them together at a videoconference party.
