What included in this article
The Best Activities for Dads
Pros - you can put your driving tips off dad to the test.
Cons - you’ll probably have to let your dad win this one.
Enjoying a trip to a go karting course would be a great shout for Father’s Day weekend! What better way to inject some friendly competition into your family day out then with a race in some go karts. If your dad is a lover of driving and often watches the F1 then a karting experience like this will be perfect.
Pros - perfect opportunity to drink your dad under the table.
Cons - all the family may not be able to go along as this game is 18+.
If you are wanting to create your own activity and everyone in your family is over 18 then pub golf will be perfect. Choose your pub course and create your pars for each hole (pub) and then off you go. Pair your trip to the pubs with some golf attire to really make the most of this pub golf experience.
Pros - fun & competitive event where you won’t get told off for aiming at your dad!
Cons - there may be some hefty bruises when you are finished…
Test how good your aim is as you go head to head in the ultimate experience. Paintballing would be a great addition to your Father’s Day celebrations. If you are looking for action, adrenaline, fun, and plenty of memory making then this activity will be perfect. Why not get all the dads in your family together and make it a full day event for everyone?
Go on a Family Hike
Pros - a breath of fresh air with some beautiful scenery to take in.
Cons - not great if everyone in the family aren’t fans of walking.
If Father’s Day falls on a sunny weekend then heading out on a big family hike will be a great idea. You could go on your dad’s favourite walk or try somewhere completely new for the occasion. As well as it being a great way to get some fresh air and keep active it also makes your tea that evening feel more rewarding if you have been on a family hike in the day.

Make Your Own Gentlemen's Afternoon Tea
Afternoon tea is a no brainer when it comes to Mother’s Day, so why should it be any different for Father’s Day? Take a traditional afternoon tea and make it more suited to your dad. Swap out your sandwiches for mini burgers, add some fish in batter or a savoury tart and keep your scone and sweet treat. Pair it with some beer or his favourite hot beverage and it will definitely be an experience that he will love.
Favourite Cuisine Themed Night
Go all out and create a full evening based on their favourite cuisine. For example if its Mexican why not have enchiladas, nachos, rice, tequila, sombreros for everyone to wear, the full works. It’s a great way to make the meal dedicated to your dad’s favourite things. You could even decorate the kitchen with the flag of where the cuisine originates from and have themed games to play after you have ate.
Put Together a Picnic
Putting a picnic together would make the perfect Father’s Day tea if the sun is shining. Get all your dad’s favourite snacks and items that will go together as a buffet style tea. As well as food you could also get some alcoholic beverages to take with you like his favourite beer or pre-made cocktails. Once you’ve got all your food together you could enjoy eating it in the park, in your garden or at the beach.
