Father’s Day is a great excuse to spend time bonding with your father or for little ones to get a day away with dad. If you’re on a budget, there are so many things you can do together that won’t cost a fortune. Whether it’s fishing or a movie marathon, these fun and affordable ways to spend Father’s Day are a great way to spend time together.
So many fathers love to go fishing. Chances are he already has his own equipment, but a new set of lures or a new tackle box can be a great gift to give him while on the trip. Find a local place that is quiet and gives you both the chance to relax and talk. Bring your catch back to his house and have a cookout. It’s the perfect way to end the day.
A day long cookout is another great way to spend Father’s Day. You can get the entire family involved and also invite grandparents. It doesn’t have to be steak and potatoes, but having steak at home is definitely cheaper than going to the steakhouse. However, you could also do chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, or even pizza. Add some delicious side dishes, a dessert, and a pitcher of lemonade for a great meal. You could also play yard games or sports to pass the time.
Beat the heat and have a movie marathon. Watch all his favorite movies and order a few pizzas. This is relaxing and gives you both the chance to bond over some pretty great movies. You could also buy a couple new movies you think he would like to make the day even better.
If your dad loves to golf, a trip to his favorite golf course for the day can be a fun and affordable way to spend Father’s Day. If you’ve never played golf, he’ll enjoy teaching you a thing or two about the game. If you’re looking for a fun way for your kids to have a great day with your husband, hit the mini golf course for a day of fun.
Last, but not least, if your dad is the outdoor type, a day of hiking is something he’s sure to enjoy. Find a great trail, pack a good lunch, and get going. It’s free, relaxing, and a great way to bond. If you want to spend more time together, plan to camp out.
Father’s Day doesn’t have to be expensive. There are so many great activities that are very affordable. Whether it’s a movie marathon or fishing, your father will love these bonding experiences.
