I can’t take the suspense any more, let’s get started!


Want to know one of the absolute best things to do on Father’s Day? Make him feel like a king! What better way to show how loved Dad is than showering him with love all day. We came up with some suggestions for ways to treat dad like a king. Just use this handy list, or pick and choose your favorites!

  • Breakfast in Bed – Start the day off right with breakfast in bed. There is nothing more royal than eating before you’ve even stood up for the day.
  • The Royal Throne – Decorate his favorite recliner to look truly royal for the day.
  • Foot Rubs/Back Massage – Kings need extra massages all day… from both mom and kids!
  • King of the Remote – This one is a given, right? No one else controls the remote for a full 24 hours.
  • Slippers Fetcher – Assign one child to be on slipper duty. That means Dad’s feet don’t touch the floor unless they are properly slippered — no excuses!
  • No Chores for the Day – Of COURSE kings don’t do chores. Put away that honey-do list!
  • Court Jester Kids – If Dad is the king, then kids are his court jesters. Make a fun game out of the kids doing anything Dad asks for the day. He has a crown, after all. (Did we not mention the crown yet? Oh, don’t worry, there’s a crown!)
  • Dinner Menu – Let the kids make a dinner menu and let Dad choose what everyone is going to eat — no picky complaints!
  • Game Night – Have a fun family game night and remember, kings get to cheat. If any peasants call him out on it, it’s off to the dungeons for them!
  • Alone Time – Of course, if Dad’s the king, that makes Mom the queen. Make sure the two of you get a little alone time together to end the day!
