The Best Father’s Day Gifts to Keep Dads AND Kids Busy

When we celebrate Mother’s Day, many of us dream of nothing better than being left alone for the day. If the dads in your life are also craving alone time on Father’s Day, we totally understand. But when they’re done with all that, maybe they’ll be ready for more quality kid time. And for that, we have some of the perfect Father’s Day gifts.

We recognize that today’s dads aren’t those standoffish 1950s father figures who didn’t know how to relate to their kids. And yet we all sometimes need new ideas for how to share our leisure time with children — especially when we’re kind of over playing with their LEGO sets and would like to do something a little more stimulating. That’s why we’ve created this gift list. These are all related to some kind of hobby, game, or activity that kids and dads will enjoy equally together. There’s the old-school version — golf, model-car building and astronomy. But also, we came up with some more unusual options, like cheese-making and forming a family band.

Have you seen through our ulterior motive here? Yeah, when dads and kids are playing, building, and creating together, maybe a few of us moms can finally get a break. So, happy Father’s Day to us, too!
