This is a wonderful reminiscing activity that will engage men in a social setting.
Here are some suitable indoor and outdoor activities for Fathers Day.
This is an ideal game for men to form/strengthen friendships whilst having fun.
Ideal for men, this activity will foster friendship and bring much laughter. It would be helpful if you could find a male volunteer to sit with participants and remind them of different ways to make paper airplanes.
Making greeting cards is a lot of fun! Have a session to make cards for every male in you facility on Father's Day. Celebrate their hobbies, their love of animals, their fancy cars and their enthusiasm for sports.
This game has been adapted to indoors to suit people with a limited range of movements.
We play a game we call MarPoolBowls and it is one of the most looked forward to activities we have. Thanks Ron for another great activity!

Decorate your facility with garlands for Father's Day. They are fun to make and eye catching!
This game was the forerunner to ten pin bowling and was very popular in England's pubs since the 17th century.
Encourage residents to reminisce with some questions about their own fathers or male role models.
Father's Day is a very special celebration and planning a program with specific activities will help make the day stress-free and enjoyable for residents, guests, friends and family.
Have some fun remembering the way things used to be.
Get residents to reminisce about their own fathers.
This activity is based on the old game of fishing using magnets and paper clips.

Gorgeous bow-tie and tie garland decorations for Father's Day. Perfect for a craft session with seniors.
As the saying goes - One Person's Trash is Another Person's Art - Scavenger Collages can be made of almost anything you find or intend to throw out. This is also a great activity for men in nursing homes.
