Looking for the perfect way to celebrate dad? From homemade crafts and gifts to delicious recipes, make Father’s Day special with these LimeLight suggestions for a fun-filled family day.
Start his day off right with a Father’s Day brunch. He’ll be feeling like royalty. Pick a few choices that will have dad and everyone else’s mouths watering.
Easy Eggs Benedict with Canadian bacon, eggs, yolks, toasted English muffins; as well as some additions like white vinegar, butter, heavy cream, ground cayenne pepper, and salt will have dad’s stomach thanking you.
Heart-Shaped Pancakes with two cups of flour, one teaspoon of salt, two tablespoons of sugar, four teaspoons of baking powder, two beaten eggs, one-and-a-half cups of milk, four tablespoons of softened butter, and, of course, a heart-shaped cookie cutter, your love will surely show.
Don’t forget the sweets!
Try decorating the top of dad’s cake with his favorite sports team.
If he likes to grill, make a pretend grill out of the body of the cake and then place cake pieces in the shape of small hamburgers or hotdogs to put on top. For a bigger party, plan three cakes that are cut out into letters that spell out “DAD”.
Cupcakes: Father’s Day cupcakes are a great way for dad and everyone else to indulge in sweets on a smaller scale. Try to decorate them with a tie or golf ball and golf club to place on each top for some fun Father’s Day cupcakes. You could also try using felt mustaches and glue them onto toothpicks to place in the cupcakes. Humorous AND tasty.
Personalize a photo frame: This is a great Father’s day craft for toddlers to really put their heart into. You will need: a wooden picture frame, a photo of the kids and Dad, paint and paintbrushes, glue, markers and stickers. Make sure the paint dries before adding decorations. Try adding sentiments like “I Love You Dad,” or “#1 Dad,” or “Daddy’s little girl/boy.” Place the photo in the frame after everything dries for the child to make dad feel special on Father’s Day.
Plan an Outing
Find something dad would want to do, such as a farmer’s market, a ball game, or a museum. What is something that fits dad?
Try finding a hiking trail, take a fishing trip, play at a local park, take a trip to a beach, or go for a bike ride to enjoy the outdoors. Really make it his day!
