June 19, 2016 is Father’s Day!


M.G. and Reese

Father’s day is a special day here at Rainbow, a day where we celebrate fathers and father figures, and the special relationship they have with their child.

The first Father’s Day celebration, in the United States, took place in on Jun 19, 1910 in Spokane, Wash.  Sonora Louise Smart Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart, who raised 6 children by himself on a farm after the passing of Senora’s mother. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson declared the third Sunday of June Father’s Day, and in 1972 President Richard Nixon officially made it a national holiday. Ever since, the third Sunday of June has reminded us to put aside time and show appreciation to these great role models!

This Sunday, Father’s Day isn’t just taking place for our Rainbow Families across the country… but in countries across the world! While the exact date of Father’s Day varies across the globe, many countries share the third of June as a time of special recognition, including India, France and Japan!

You can help your child celebrate their father or the father figure in many ways (and they don’t need to cost a lot of money!).

  • Encourage your child to make a card that highlights all of the things they love about, or love to do with, their father or father figure.
  • Help your child make a special craft or project that focuses on a special memory.
  • Help your child make a “Little Helper” coupon book that dad can cash in when he needs a little extra assistance with a project or chore.
  • Work with your child to plan a special meal or activity that they can do with their father or father figure, such as food they can make together with very little help, go fishing, attend a sporting event or building a fun project.
