Fun and Healthy Father's Day Activities

Jun 10, 2013

On Father's Day, it's all about your dad! Show him how much you care about him this Father's Day by doing somethin' fun and healthy together instead of laying on the couch watching TV all weekend.

Get Your Fitness On

If Dad's working nine to five every day, he probably wants to unwind by the time he gets home. Well, help him de-stress by going out to play some of his favorite sports and work up a sweat. It could be bowling, fly fishing, or even shuffleboard. Or maybe he's an avid golfer, but you're not too crazy about the game. Whatever sport it is, just suck it up and play a round together. Remember, it's his day, not yours.

Get Cookin'

The way to a man's heart is usually through his stomach, so show your dad some love by whipping up some of his favorite meals! On this day, your dad should be able to eat whatever his heart desires, but if he wants food that isn't necessarily good for his heart, make sure to put a healthy twist on 'em. Like if he craves chips and dip, get the low-fat kind. If he loves pepperoni pizza, add a generous amount of mushrooms and green peppers so he'll get his daily serving of veggies. And if he likes bacon with his breakfast, make sure it's low-salt and also include some non-fat yogurt topped with lots of fruit to the meal.

Be a Rock Star

Just cuz Dad is old(er) doesn't mean he'll ever stop wanting to party like a rock star. So ask him to join you in the living room to play Guitar Hero or Rock Band! Face off to see who can rock out the hardest!

You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)

Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.

Maybe you should wait until you feel a little bit more comfy talking to them, and then tell them!  :D
