Host a Virtual Father’s Day Party – Whatever your Father’s Day traditions were or would have been, the events of 2020 stand to re-inspire them. That said, if you were hoping to get family and friends together for a big ol’ Father’s Day shindig, you still have that option—so long as you’re willing to engage the wonders of modern tech. Video conference calling poses a pandemic-friendly alternative to celebrating in person. Below, we’ve got four ideas for celebrating your Father’s Day virtually.
Share and catch up
If it’s been a while since you’ve got the whole crew together, your Father’s Day conference call is a great opportunity to catch up and share the latest developments in everyone’s lives. If some members of your family tend to be on the quieter side, consider putting together a lottery system and drawing names out of a hat. Whoever’s name gets pulled gets to share—this way, everyone gets a turn to speak.
Prepare a slideshow and share memories
This idea will require a little bit of prep work ahead of time. Canvas friends and family for pictures and videos of dad and put them together into a slideshow, which you can then broadcast during your conference call. This is a great opportunity to reminisce as a family and share old memories. (Bonus points if you manage to unearth photos dad hasn’t seen before or hasn’t seen in a very long time!)
Play a game
No matter what dad’s favorite game is, you can bet there is a virtual version that everyone can take part in during your Father’s Day conference call. You can also up the anti by placing fun bets, such as whoever loses has to treat the family to lunch once dad’s favorite restaurant opens up again.
Enjoy a live stream concert
Host a Virtual Father’s Day Party – If dad is a music buff, he’s probably a little sad he won’t be able to catch his favorite musicians live this year. Fortunately, famous names in music, such as Jon Bon Jovi and Garth Brooks have recently participated in live stream events, and who knows who will be live-streaming a virtual concert in June. Do your research and plan accordingly.
