How to celebrate Father's Day with your dad

Dads can be tough to bond with, especially if you don't share *any* of the same interests. What can you do that both of you will actually enjoy? Well, we have a few answers to that Q and just in time for Father's Day.  

Cook together.
Sure you could make food for your dad...but why not make food with him, instead? Sign up for a cooking class together where both you and your dad can learn something new. Or keep it casual and find a recipe for the two of you to try at home.

Head to the lake.
A day at the lake or even the nearest state park is perfect for all those stereotypical dad activities (read: hiking, boating, fishing and grilling). It also gives you a chance to bond with your pops. While you're lounging on the shore or on the boat, ask him about his childhood, his college life or just anything you have wanted to know but never had the chance to ask. 

Make a movie.
Grab your camera, and vlog your day with your dad. Show him opening up presents, cracking jokes or making his famous bacon cheeseburger on the patio. Make sure you keep the video so that in a couple of years, you can watch it with him (on a future Father's Day!) and relive that moment.

Volunteer.
Making others feel good will make you two feel good, too. You and your dad can serve food at a homeless shelter, donate blood or help beautify a local garden. Whatever you two end up doing, remember to reflect on how lucky you are to be able to help the less fortunate and show your gratitude to your dad for his great influence in your life. 

Run a 5K.
If you and your pops are competitive, sign up for a race together. You can even get the whole family to join in for a relay or obstacle themed event. Bonus points if you treat Dad to ice cream after you cross the finish line.
