BEST FATHER’S DAY EVER: It’s All About Family

Father’s Day this coming Sunday is a wonderful reason to spend time together as a family and to celebrate Dad! Here is a guide to having the best Father’s Day ever. It’s all about focusing on different elements that make a successful day and sharing chores and fun times with everyone!

You’re Invited: Invite Mum, Dad and the children of course, but consider inviting grandparents and anyone who might enjoy an pleasant afternoon!

Prepare your home: Schedule a clean by MOLLY MAID before Father’s Day if possible. Today or tomorrow, have everyone (except Dad) lend a hand in terms of preparations for the event. Sweep the patio and clean the tables outside, hang up patio lanterns or other fun decor, and pull out the outdoor crockery. Be sure to clean and prepare the barbecue as well!

The Meal: Dad usually likes to keep it simple; steak or hamburgers, caesar salad and baked potatoes.  Mum may take over barbecuing duties for the occasion. Invite your children to help make the salad and wrap potatoes in aluminum foil.

An Activity: Plan Father’s Day around a fun activity that everyone can do together. Consider a cricket or Frisbee game in the garden or nearby park. Set up the badminton net. Create a croquet game in the backyard. Or, simply go for a walk or bike ride together.

Presents: Wrap up something for Dad whether it’s a homemade present (his favourite biscuits or cakes), socks, a book, or a gift of charity (making a donation in his name).

Dessert: Either bake Dad his favourite cake or have a plan to jump into the car or walk up to the nearest ice cream parlour if it’s good weather.
