Want to make your Father’s Day a little more fun? On this page you can download free Father’s Day activities sheets to complete with your kids.

Make your Father’s Day experience this year even more fun by enjoying watching the kids fill in our fun sheets- all about their dad.

Things to do with dad

We hope you get spoiled rotten on Father’s Day, either with pressies or attention (ideally both). If you’re at a loss for things to do for father’s day, then either try our activity sheets, or give one of these ideas a try:

Have a family picnic in the park

Top of the list of favourite things to do with dad will be to go to the park. Take bikes, balls, drinks and snacks and you’ve got a fun afternoon out.

Have a boardgame tournament

If the weather is rubbish then challenge your kids to a boardgame challenge. Select some games and keep a tally of who has the most wins- that person is the overall tournament winner!

Build a den in the woods

Challenge your kids to find branches, leaves, ferns and sticks to create a den together in the local woods.

Hunker down for a movie experience

Get cosy together with duvets and pillows, close the curtains and enjoy a movie together. Bonus points for enjoying popcorn at the same time!

Make something together

Be it a meal, a cake, or getting messy with paints and glitter, spend some time creating and making with the kids.

Host a family barbecue

Get some friends and family together and enjoy a barbecue (if you can- good old British weather!).

Make a pillow fort

Use spare bedsheets, clothes pegs and blankets to make a fun fort in your child’s bedroom. Bring snacks and spend some time together hidden away from the world.

Hold a gaming afternoon

Get the PlayStation controllers out and get gaming! Try a variety of games together and have a fun afternoon challenging each other.

Create your own pizzas

Ready made pizza dough is available in most supermarkets, and is easy to unfurl and top with whatever you fancy. If you’re feeling extra brave, have a go at making your own dough!

Whatever you do this weekend, we hope you have fun!
