5 ways to celebrate Fathers’ Day & more parenting events

A son’s first hero, a daughter’s first love – fathers indeed. This Sunday 15 June, let us all gather our love, gratitude and immense respect for our first hero and first love to celebrate Father’s Day 2014. While we were all busy growing up, spending more time in school, at work or with our friends, we might have forgotten the one who was silently supporting us behind our back.

Here are 5 simple things you can do for/with your Super Dad this Father’s Day.

1. Whip up a meal for him

You do not need to be Gordon Ramsey or Martin Yan in the kitchen, just prepare a simple meal or dessert that your dad love it, and I am sure it will put a smile on his face. If you have no idea where you can start from, you can start googling for recipes or meat dishes could be the recipe you are looking for! Alternatively, you can choose to bring daddy dearest out for a meal to pamper him with his favourite cuisine or gourmet.

2. Catch a show/movie CBTDCheaper by the Dozen 2, a family comedy about a dad and his 12 children

Spend some quality time with your father by watching his favourite drama or movie with him, or you can be the one picking the show. Choose something hilarious for you and your dad to unwind and bond with one another through laughter. Create happy moments with him on this day especially if you are really busy at school or at work.

3. Have a game or two

You can sit down somewhere with your dad and have a few rounds of Chinese chess or English chess with him. Alternatively, if your family enjoy doing sports you can have a few rounds of racquet or ball games with him. This is a good opportunity for you and your dad to sweat it out despite busy schedule and to keep him fit and healthy.

4. Coffee or Tea? How about a brew?

Daddy dearest might need to relax and take his mind off his workload. You can plan to take him for a stroll at a park nearby or have a drink with him! Share your daily happenings with him over a cup of coffee or tea. You can also bring him to a brewery to have a drink or two. Your dad will be elated to hear about the new guy or girl you met at the bar last week!

5. Bring him out for a spa or massage session

Who says only women deserves to be pampered? Treat your dad to a rejuvenating and relaxing spa or massage session. Allow him to take his mind off any vexing matters momentarily and recharge.

Every dad is different in their own way, and the way every dad brings their children up would differ as well. But it is undeniable that their love for their children will ever fall behind. Our Dad’s almighty love granted us enormous strength to conquer the world. This Fathers’ Day, EventNook would like to wish all the fathers out there a very Happy Father’s Day! If you are planning any form of event to celebrate this occasion, check us out at EventNook.com. You can also sign up for upcoming parenting events here , to experience parenthood to the fullest!
