Father's Day Games for Kids

Get the little ones into Father's Day mode with some online fun.

At AKidsHeart.com, the Tie Memory Game is a simple matching game, with a nice message when you're done. I like the mini-golf as well (although I didn't see which way the arrow was pointing at first, and was 13 over par on the first hole. . .) If jig-saw puzzles are a favorite, there's a Victorian one that's very sweet.

Something sure to be treasured is a recording of your child explaining why his or her daddy is so special. Encourage lots of chatter by asking questions (phrased for age-appropriateness, of course:
  • What does daddy look like?
  • What is his name?
  • What is your grandfather's name?
  • What is daddy's job?
  • What do you like to do most with your father?
  • What is your dad's favorite activity?
  • What is your father's favorite meal?
  • Tell me about a fond memory you have about you and your dad.
  • What does your father do in his free time? Does he have a special hobby?
  • Does your dad play sports?
  • Which games does your father play with you?
  • Does your dad have tools?
  • Tell me about your father's car.
  • Which chores does your father do around the house? Groceries? Dishes? Take out the trash? Cooking? Mow the lawn?
