- Set up a backyard family movie night (break out his OG favorites)
- Design an indoor scavenger hunt (maybe a “Dad’s quirks” theme?)
- Prepare an indoor picnic (all the fun, minus the heat and bugs)
- Camp indoors (we see ghost stories and s’mores in your future)

- Pose together to recreate old family photos (the goofier the better)
- Theme his day (costumes, anyone?)
