Your Dad is worth an out-of-the-box activity on his special day! We’ve put together a small, fun list with relevant links to get what you need for your favorite fellah. Show him a great time with this fun, short list!

Movie Marathon on the Lawn:

There’s nothing that says “I love you” like letting your #1 guy have full control over the remote. Set up the ultimate Die Hard or Lord of the Rings movie marathon on the lawn.


  • Inexpensive projector
  • Screen (a sheet can work in a pinch!)
  • Popcorn (maybe splurge for a vintage popcorn popper to add the the ambiance)
  • Blankets, Pillows, and Lawn Chairs
  • Don’t forget the Jujubees!

  • Cornhole boards and beanbags
  • Scorecards
  • Cooler of drinks and snacks
  • Grill and kebabs!

Hot Wheels!:

For an Old-Fashioned Dad who longs for simpler times, locate a local Father’s Day Car Show. This dose of nostalgia is sure to warm his heart. 


  • Sunscreen
  • Water
  • Cash for food trucks and raffle tickets
Here’s a local car show example!

Papa Bear Picnic:

With this fun, simple activity, you can customize it completely to your special guy. More into mountain biking? Throw your supplies in a backpack and hit the trails! Beach bum dad? Load up a cooler and head for the shore. Homebody? Throw a soft blanket down in a local park or the backyard and go with a classic basket set up. What REALLY matters is the food and the company!


  • Food
  • Food transportation and consumption methods (baskets and forks, y’all)
  • Family!

Here are some Father’s Day Picnic Printables!

Whatever you do on Father’s Day, honoring the Big Guy in your family can be simple, fun, and tailored completely to his interests. We hope you enjoyed our blogs this month and we’ll see you again in July! Happy Father’s Day from your Virginia Lawn Service, Inc. family!
