    • Father's Day Picnic Party

    • Sometimes Fatherââ¬â¢s Day activities can be difficult to plan. Keeping this in mind, it may be true that others are having difficulties planning as well. With that said, how abut a Fatherââ¬â¢s Day Picnic Party! Invite as many Dads and their families as you would like.

What you will need:

1. A location.

You could have your party in a park, a backyard, or the beach. Remember some locations will require you and/or your guests to bring tables and chairs. Ifyou do not have tables and chairs, call a party rental company and reserve the amount needed. Usually, renting is not very expensive. You will know the amount when you recieve RSVPs. Keep in mind that you will probably need an extra table just for food.

2. Food

Will you be providing all of the food, will you request that they bring their own, or does each family bring a side dish to share? Barbequing is very popular for Fatherââ¬â¢s Day. If you supply hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken, and/or steaks, have the guests bring side dishes, condiments, or drinks. Donââ¬â¢t forget the buns, plates, plastic ware, cups, napkins, ice, trash bag, and table clothes. If barbequing is not your style try ordering a large sandwich. Also, a large cake is very thoughtful.

3. Activities

Have a craft making section where the kids can make Fatherââ¬â¢s Day cards or draw pictures for their Father. Some supplies to consider would include construction paper, crayons, markers, coloring books, stickers, glitter, gllue, etcââ¬Â¦Going to your local craft store may provide you with even more ideas.

Physical activities are a great release for children. Choose some fun games that all can play. Some great games are T-ball, soft ball, red-rover red-rover, red light green light, touch football, dodge ball, tag, etcââ¬Â¦ Hopefully no one will get hurt but it is always a good idea to bring a first aid kit.

4. A List

Create a list. A well organized party leaves less room for error. Select a few guests that would not mind helping if you need it. Many are happy to help.

What to do next:

   1. Send out invitations
      Be sure to include the date, time, location, what to bring, RSVP by date, and if they can bring guests.
   2. Reserve tables, chairs, and food including the cake.
   3. Figure out the flow.
      After everyone has said their ââ¬Åhellosââ¬?, have the kids start making crafts while the Dadââ¬â¢s start the grill. This will allow for some very important male bonding time. Begin cleaning up the craft table and turning it into where your guests will eat. After you all eat have the kids tell everyone what they made for their dad. Once the ids are done sharing what they have made, introduce the physical activity. Having the physical activity after the food will allow everyone to work off the folod. Finish off the party with cake.If this does not suit you, try the physical activity first, then the crafts and then food.
   4. Consider added extras
          * Custom T-shirts for the Dadââ¬â¢s and/or the kids
          * Balloons tied to chairs
          * Banners
          * Music
          * Prizes
          * Alcohol
          * Pinatas
   5. Donââ¬â¢t forget the sunscreen and the camera!
