Car wash and Detailing
Each member of the family can participate in sprucing up his car. In addition to washing the car, you can purchase services and accessories like having the oil changed, purchase new floor mats, new windshield wipers, a new CD, or new drink holder.
A Weekend Camping, Fishing, or Getaway to the Jersey Shore
This is a nice time of the year to enjoy the outdoors. Spend family time with dad over a weekend camping, or down at the shore doing the things he loves best. Add to the special meaning by packing the car for dad, filling it up with gas, as well as plan for special things for dad over the weekend.
Have the Family Create The Father's Day card. This can be an inexpensive project that the entire family can participate in. Have the kids add their art work and thoughtful sayings, or if they are too young to do that, add their tiny hand and foot prints.
Consider Dad's interests. What is his favorite weekend pastime? Golf? A baseball game? Fishing? Plan and participate in the activity with dad to make it a memorable day.
