Looking for simple and meaningful Father’s Day activities that will embrace and define family? Check out these fun ideas for children of all ages and dads with all different interests. You’re sure to make lasting memories! Since today is his special day, find a moment to let him know how much he is appreciated.

Plus, we’ve got a great recipe just for Dad: Chewy Butterscotch Brownies. They’ll disappear right before your eyes.

1. Play Golf or Mini Golf
Whether Dad is a pro on the golf course or more of an ace at putt-putt, an afternoon of golf is fun for fathers and kids alike. Stick with miniature golf if the kids are beginners, of course. Going to the driving range is a great activity if Dad wants to start teaching the kids the “real” game.

2. Have a Movie Night
Order or make Dad’s favorite pizza and turn on a family-friendly flick that he’ll love. It’s the perfect ending to a fantastic Father’s Day.

3.Build Something
Does Dad spend his free time in the garage or woodshop? Here are some simple instructions to build a birdhouse, or find something else kid-friendly to build together. If the kids are too young to use tools, break out the paintbrushes for them to decorate whatever Dad creates.
