Quirky things to do on Father’s Day

Posted on 7 June 2024 By Louise Bell

As fathers worldwide celebrate on the third Sunday of June annually, it can be hard to come up with fun and fresh ways to honour your dad. While the standard pair of socks and tie can be a great gift, an experience with the male role model in your life can be a great way to make cherished memories.

Are you looking for out-of-the-box ideas to have fun with your dad this Father’s Day? Take a look at a few options to make this family-fuelled holiday one to remember.

Attend a workshop or class

One way to ensure a memorable Father’s Day is to have an interactive and fun way that appeals to your dad’s interests. Whether it’s a cooking class or a crafty workshop, your dad will surely appreciate your interest and delving into a hobby that appeals to him.

As Father’s Day is a popular holiday to plan excursions, be sure to book your spot in your chosen class or workshop well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Plan a hike

The great outdoors provides many scenic settings to enjoy while working up a sweat. Planning a hiking excursion is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the beauty of nature with your dad.

To make this trip extra special, you can pack a snack-filled basket to enjoy once you find a viewpoint where you can rest and recharge in a stunning setting.

Go beer tasting

What better way to get a hop in your step (pun intended) than by enjoying a brewski sipping experience this Father’s Day? South Africa is known for providing an abundance of craft breweries to visit and try a wide selection of beer types.

As temperatures begin to drop in June, there is a chance you’ll experience a rainy day on Father’s Day. Beer tasting is also a great option if you’re looking for an indoor activity to warm you up.

Organise a staycation

Another indoor alternative on a rainy day, planning a staycation at home, is the ultimate way to show your love and care through a thoughtful gesture. From an indoor picnic to a well-deserved home spa experience, a winter staycation will make your dad’s stress disappear in a fun and attentive way.
