Dads are an important part of our family structure and community. While we might not think of flowers and chocolate when we think of Father’s Day, dads do deserve to be celebrated and acknowledged for their contribution and hard work.
What can you do for dads in your circle? Do you know a single dad? Maybe you can help the children plan a special treat or an outdoor adventure of hiking or throwing the ball at the park. What about helping them pack a picnic lunch or yummy snacks?
Here are some additional ways to celebrate dads this Father’s Day:
- Homemade cards
- Handmade certificates for fun throughout the year
- Sweet treats
- Favorite meal or BBQ
- Breakfast in bed
Moms, what can you do to support your kids in celebrating dad, even if you’re not together anymore? It’s a beautiful gift when children are able to love both parents freely. What a great opportunity to show kids how to be kind and give to others, even when it’s hard.
Happy Father’s Day to our many wonderful dads! Thank you for everything you do! May you create memories that will be treasured for years to come.
