Father's Day Printables for an At-Home Celebration

Though most celebrations this year, from Mother's Day to birthdays, will look different from those past, that doesn't mean they shouldn't be celebrated with as much excitement and fun as possible. Having an at-home Father's Day might be different than the parties and dinners we're used to, but having an intimate, family-only celebration can help us all feel closer together to the people that love us the most. Use this collection of Father's Day printables from FragranceX to throw a DIY, at-home celebration you'll all remember for years to come!

Punny Cards + Gift Labels

A celebration truly isn't complete without cards to open and read out loud! Give dad (or grandpa, or whoever you're celebrating!) a taste of his own terrible humor medicine with a groan-inducing "dad joke" printable Father's Day card and gift labels. Decorate his place at the kitchen table with this card filled with family signatures, and it'll be sure to start his day off right when paired with a special breakfast he doesn't have to prepare himself. If the man in your life loves sports only slightly less than his family, give him one of these printable athletic cards—he deserves to be reminded that he's always #1! 

Family Adventure Mad Libs Story

Part of the fun of a low-key, at-home celebration is that there's plenty of down time to enjoy some quality time with family, something we've all been taking for granted lately. Make the most of Father's Day with an interactive, fill-in-the-blank printable family adventure story! Designate one family member to call out for nouns, adjectives and other words to fill in the blank, then have Dad read the hilarious story out loud. You can fill it out in pencil, and do this as many times as you want until the whole family is happy with your very own family adventure story. When you're done, date, sign and frame or laminate the story so you can all remember your unconventional, but still fun, Father's Day 2020. 

I.O.U Coupons

When it comes to gifts from little ones, there's one tried-and-true favorite that has been gifted for years: I.O.U coupons! These printable coupons for picnics, hikes or anything kids or dad can think of can be redeemed by Dad at any time of his choosing. These coupons give Dad something that can't be purchased in a store or with 2-day shipping: quality time with his kids. Especially if kids have a lot of siblings or their dad works late, these are a great way to promote uninterrupted, one-on-one quality time that both dad and child will look forward to and will look back on fondly for years to come.

When it comes to celebrations during these unconventional times, it can be easy to wish for "what could have been" and think back on all of the celebrations of years past. Now more than ever, it's time to make the best of the times we've found ourselves in by making at-home celebrations all the more special. This Father's Day, remember to be extra grateful for your family and dad—he's the reason for the celebration, after all!
