Sunday, June 19th is Father’s Day. Here are some great ideas to show Dads how much we appreciate them. There is also a song about families and some inquiry activities around the question “What makes a family?”.
Book Trailer: Gator Dad by Brian Lies (released in May, 2016)
Gator Dad Activity kit
Activities: (From a post on Wonderopolis)
“How will you celebrate Father’s Day? Here are some fun activities you can explore with a friend or family member:
- Does your dad like to golf? Challenge him to a fun game that’s just a little different than what he might be used to. Play Frisbee Golf! (There is a course at Centennial Park in Mission!)
- Think about all the fun times you’ve had with your dad over the years. Make your own homemade Father’s Day card to show him how much he means to you. Include special memories of the most special times you’ve spent together. Have fun reminiscing about the good ol’ days!
- Treat dear old Dad to a special day of relaxation in the backyard. Get him a comfy chair, offer to do a few chores, fix him a nice lunch, grab him a refreshing drink, and then after he’s had a nice nap, play some fun backyard games together! Enjoy the day celebrating the special father figures in your life!”
What Makes a Family? Watch and listen to the song and try the activities from Wonderopolis below.
Read/listen to another Wonder-of-the-day: “What Makes a Family?” Try some of the family activities (and look at a very cute photo of a meerkat family).
