10 Unique Ideas to Celebrate Parents’ Day

Parents’ Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in July. Parents’ Day is the perfect excuse to set aside a little extra time and do something special as a family.

Parents Day

  1. Have a picnic: Pack up some of your favorite foods and enjoy them at a local park or even right in your own backyard. The picnic can be as simple or as fancy as you like.

  2. Stop for ice cream cones: Late July is an ideal time to indulge in a sweet treat. Grab your cones and take a long walk around the neighborhood.

  3. Sing songs together: Sit down around the piano and sing show tunes or put on a favorite CD or MP3 playlist in the car and sing along with it.

  4. Research your family history: Talk to aunts, uncles, grandparents, and other relatives to learn more about your family history.

  5. Look at old family pictures: Pull out snapshots of family vacations and special events and reminisce for a few hours.

  6. Bake something together: Making Grandma’s classic cookie recipe or whipping up a delicious pound cake is a great bonding experience for kids and parents alike.

  7. Spend a night “unplugged”: Turn off the TVs, computers, and mobile devices and play a board game or card game.

  8. Explore a new area of town: Hop in the car and check out a destination that you’ve always wanted to visit, such as a museum or park.

  9. Help out with some major chores: Choose a large chore that your parents always handle, such as mowing the lawn or washing the windows, and take care of it for them.

  10. Take a few minutes to say thank you: Make a point of thanking your parents for something that they do for you so that they know just how much you appreciate it.
