For Mother's Day I made a room service printable for breakfast in bed, but for Father's Day I think it's better to make the dinner meal fun and special. I made a little “menu” for dad so that he can enjoy his Father's Day meal “restaurant style.” You can customize this menu and make it as simple or as elaborate as you'd like. If you want to go all out and make some rolls or fun appetizers you can do that, or can can stick with silly things like goldfish, pretzels, or cheese and crackers. Let the kid's dress up all fancy and help by being the waitress, cook, or bus boy.

To customize the Father's Day menu PDF:
Under “Edit,” select “take a snapshot.” You can then paste your snapshot into Powerpoint or Photoshop or whatever. Then “add text box” and customize how you'd like!
Ideas for Making Father's Day Dinner Fun For the Kids:
- Let the kids waiter/waitress for dad.
- Rather than have your kids fill out a Father's Day questionnaire ahead of time, fill a jar with fun, random questions about dad and let the kids answer them spur of the moment during dinner.
- Make a special Placemat for dad filled with all the reasons Dad is so great
- If one of your children plays the violin or another instrument, let them “serenade” dad while he enjoys his appetizer, or as he is looking over the menu.
- Have Father's Day Dinner “Macaroni Grill” style and cover the kitchen table in parchment paper. Get out crayons and let the kids color with dad while they all enjoy the drink/appetizer together.
How do you involve the kids to make Father's Day Special?
