2. Jump back in time

If dad is a bookworm and loves culture and history, then there’s only one place to go to satisfy his intellectual cravings – the museum! There are plenty of museums around Singapore to pique daddy’s interests. Whether it’s the renowned National Museum of Singapore, futuristic Red Dot Design Museum, or the interactive The Maritime Experiential Museum, you’ll keep the whole family entertained for hours! In fact, you might have a harder time pulling dad out of there instead of your kids!

3. Time for a makeover

Fathers have many endearing and charming qualities. While he might show them off regularly, he doesn’t always have the chance to look dapper! Take daddy to a fancy hairstylist or barber for a proper pampering session. A little grooming can do wonders for keeping him looking sharp and snazzy – reminding you why you fell in love with him in the first place!

4. Become an escape artist

Many fathers are competitive, even over small things! Channel that competitive nature into a fun family activity – an escape room! Dad and the kids will have to put their heads together with razor-sharp wits and eagle-eye observation to find all the clues in time to escape from their temporary dungeon. It’s also a great way to flex your kids’ cognitive abilities!

Your kids will love seeing their dad laughing and flying down water slides. Having a splash will put a smile on all of your faces and is one of the most fun things to do on Father’s Day!

6. Unwind with a massage

Take Daddy to a spa to help him relax. Going to work, caring for his kids, and being the best father and husband possible will surely leave a few knots in the shoulders and back. Spa treatment will be just the trick to helping him loosen up and back to his best.

7. Take dad for a spot of fishing

Does daddy have maritime interests? Then how about taking the family out for a fishing trip! Whether he considers himself a veteran of the sea or a newbie who doesn’t know how to set up a fishing rod, you’ll enjoy the time together all the same.

There’s nothing wrong with a good old fashioned trip to the cinema! Can you remember the last time the family went out to see a film? You could take the gang to see a family-friendly movie. But if he prefers watching films that definitely aren’t for children’s eyes, then you could have a date with him to see a film he’s been dying to see for a while. After all, daddy puts the family first throughout the year, so it’s good to put him first – even for just a day!

9. Bring him for a fancy steak dinner

You can even prepare a meal at home! Getting the kids involved with cooking also helps them develop their gross and fine motor skills! And you can even buy a new set of carving knives if daddy is handy around the kitchen!

10. Challenge him to an upwards race

Does daddy enjoy getting sweaty and a challenge? Rock climbing can be that challenge for him. Instructors and safety equipment makes it a safe and fun activity for him and the kids to get stuck into. Clip ‘n’ Climb offers various indoor climbing courses where the little ones and the big kid can race to the top!

11. Enjoy the sun with food and family
