Ideas About How They Want To Celebrate

Father's Day is fast approaching. Like Mother's day, celebrations like these are but a great reminder for us, parents, to spend some more quality time with our kids, getting to know them a little bit more. After all, we wouldn't be where we are (talking about what to do on father's day) without them.

 

Toddlers, they aren't exactly at the age of knowing what those celebrations marked in the calendar should mean. In spite of that, they are typically keen to get involved in anything and everything. So, make use of this opportunity to bring them in on the celebrations.

 

For a start, you may explain the idea behind Father's Day (and Mother's Day) to them; why there are such days. Or, you may begin by telling them how great your father and your mother were; sacrifices they made to feed you and raise you then.

 

Telling them how much you respect and love your father and your mother, and what such days mean to you, is the best way to teach them what these celebrations should mean. Also, encourage them to have their own ideas about how they want to celebrate, or thank their father for being the great guy that he is.
