Not sure what to say in your video? Here are some video message prompts to help get you started!

  2. Tell your dad how he has impacted your life and helped make you who you are today.

  3. What do you love most about your dad? His sense of humor? His generosity? Let him know!

  4. Take out an old photo album, show a few favorite pictures, and reminisce. 

  5. If your dad is a bit of a joker, make up a silly poem or have some good “dad jokes” on hand. 

  6. If you have little ones at home, ask them questions about their dad: What do you love the most about Daddy? What is Daddy really good at? What’s your favorite thing to do with Daddy?

  7. If you both share a favorite band or song, play the song in the background (or better yet sing it yourself!) when wishing your dad a Happy Father’s Day . Music can invoke a lot of fond memories. 

  8. What has been the most important advice your dad has given you? Let Dad know what it is and how it has helped shape you.

  9. Read a quote that reminds you of your dad. Whether it’s from a favorite book, movie, or song, let him know why it and he are so special to you.

  10. Simply say “Thank you.” Think of three things that you want to tell your dad that you’re grateful for.

A heartfelt video is a wonderful way to show all the father-figures in your life how much you love them. With these prompts you’ll be able to create a thoughtful and memorable Father’s Day video your dad will love!
