There is a wide range of
options available, from novelty items to quality items your dad can use at
work. Just remember to set a budget for your items which may increase based on
the year group purchasing the items so you only source items that your school
community can afford after all, kids will probably be raiding their piggy bank
to purchase their gifts!
If it is at all possible,
you can also have the option of a free gift wrapping station for students where
they can either make their own paper from long rolls of butchers paper and
donated ribbon, or you can include wrapping paper in the purchase price of your
Father’s Day stall items. If you are going to provide this service, also
include scissors and sticky tape for students so they can have their gift
wrapped and ready to present on Father’s Day.
Father’s Day doesn’t necessarily need to
be about physical gifts; you can also explore the idea of creating gift
vouchers or experiences for your school community to enjoy.
Great Father’s Day experiences that can
be done with children or without include:
night at school or in a school group with fathers
watching or boat cruise
taste testing at local brewery – ‘beergustation’ experience
car driving or hot lap
- Donuts for Dads
Father’s Day can be a whole lot of fun

sizzle and invite all the dads in your school community along to celebrate or

dad’s in your school.

committee, have a look at what’s been done in the past to get an idea of the
style of event your school community is open to and be sure to ask around to
get an indication of support for the Father’s Day ideas your committee might be
To ensure the event’s success, be sure it
is promoted throughout your school via email communication, social media and
printed posters to guarantee that students are aware of the upcoming stall and
bring along their spending money on the correct day to buy something a little
special to celebrate their dad’s special day.
