Observance of Father's Day makes fathers feel that their contributions are acknowledged in the society and also by their children. Celebration of Father's Day has made them ponder for a while on the important role their father play in their life.

No doubt only mothers are regarded as the sole raiser and nurturer of a child. But all of us know that father is just as important for a child as the mother is. If mothers are the heroines of child rearing, significance of the father as the heroes for a child’s development and emotional well-being cannot be disregarded. Children depend on their father for their spiritual, emotional, physical, financial, and social well-being. For daughters, our father is the ideal man in the world and also the first man they love and adore, while for sons, our father is an idol and the strongest protector they aspire to emulate.

Therefore, children must take full opportunity of the day and express their gratitude for fathers with all their heart. Here are 7 ways to celebrate Father’s Day that doesn’t cost a fortune and are lockdown-friendly, yet makes it memorable for good ol’ dad.

1. Create a Scrapbook

Take photos of your dad with the family or dig out the family album and pick the funniest or sweetest photos and compile them onto the scrapbook and add in some little hand-written notes. Or you can make a digital scrapbook by taking videos and audios and integrate them into a short video clip or movie. These images are links to the people we love and cherished most in our lives. They are like small pieces of a jigsaw that complete the larger picture of the various stages in your family’s lives, which holds meaningful and unforgettable stories as well as memories.

2. Breakfast in Bed

You don’t need to be a Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsay-wannabe to whip a good meal for your dad. A simple omelette or sandwiches are good enough to keep dad happy. As the saying goes “a way to a man's heart is through his stomach”. You can simply search online for recipes or watch it on YouTube and then practice your culinary skills before the special day arrives. Your dad will surely appreciate it and feel proud of your skills.

3. Fun Entertainment

If your dad loves to watch movies, indulge him by playing his favourite movies, or go for a movie marathon at home. How about a dad joke contest? Nobody loves a punny joke like dad! Bring out the giggles this Father’s Day by hosting a dad joke contest, and invite his friends and closest family members to join in on Zoom. Everyone gets their chance to share their best dad joke, and those with the most laughs wins!

5. Written Message

Write a poem or a heartfelt letter or card expressing your love and appreciation to Dad. Handwritten messages are a good and sincere way to show your gratitude for the sacrifices and contributions your dad has done for you. Don’t worry about grammar mistakes or broken sentences, it’s the thoughts that counts.

6. Simple Celebration

It doesn’t have to be expensive or extravagant. Just a simple barbeque at home or steamboat is enough to create a warm and joyous atmosphere. Spending time and having fun with your closest family members is something all dads don’t want to miss out on.
