Father’s Day has finally arrived and, although dad’s celebration may look a little different this year, this Sunday, June 21st is simply about showing dad how much you love and care for him. So, why not get a little creative and exceed dad’s expectations? Your home might just be the perfect place to host a Father’s Day weekend he won’t ever forget. To help get those creative juices flowing, we’ve rounded up three family-friendly activities to help you express your gratitude, spend time with loved ones, and experience some much-needed fun – all from the comfort of your own home!
1. Host a game tournament
From charades to video games to basketball, a game tournament allows you to create a series of contests that are tailored to your dad’s unique preferences. If he enjoys the outdoors, transform your backyard into a mini sports arena and set up activities like soccer, flag football, or a relay race that the whole family can enjoy. Not only will dad be impressed that you’ve nailed his favorite activities, but you’ll also maintain the element of surprise with a backyard makeover. For dads who prefer traditional or computer games, reorganize your rooms and living areas into different levels. Start off with an easy game of UNO and steadily progress in difficulty as you move throughout the home.
With a brand-new home at Via Ventura, a community of villas and townhomes in Aventura, this Father’s Day celebration will be an easy task. This family-friendly community offers plenty of lush green spaces for outdoor fun and open-concept floorplans with ample room to play. Plus, Lennar’s standard Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Designs deliver no dead zones, so you can go virtual! Connect with extended family and friends on video chatand bring them along as you embark on this exciting adventure.
2. Plan a BBQ party
Whether your dad’s a dedicated grill lover, master chef, or a simple foodie, there’s no better way to get him excited than with a good old barbecue party. Campo Bello, a community of twinhomes and single-family homes in Miami, features oversized backyards where the whole family can gather. This key feature lends itself to quality time together, casual entertaining and of course, barbecuing. Throw some veggies and steak on the grill, while the older kids serve fresh fruit and refreshments. Then, dress up the table under the beautiful Florida sun and enjoy a mouthwatering meal that will make dad forget all about his favorite steakhouse.
3. Create a themed movie night
Is dad into science fiction, action, or comedy? Curate a lineup of dad’s must-see films and turn your living room into a full theater-going experience – complete with hand-drawn movie tickets, comfy seats, and buttery popcorn. If you live in Park Central’s Apex Collection, a beautiful selection of condos in Doral, not only will you have unsurpassed connectivity to create a virtual watch party, you’ll also have a chef-inspired kitchen that is easily accessible.
So, while dad’s fully engrossed in the movie, you can sneak away without missing a scene. Arrange a platter of snacks on your upgraded countertops or bake a cake in your new stainless steel oven – all courtesy of Lennar’s signature Everything’s Included® package. Dad will certainly cherish all the pampering and family time!
The best part about Father’s Day is that it doesn’t have to be limited to one day or weekend a year. These three activities are easy ways to demonstrate your love all year round.
