Father’s Day is just around the corner. Besides taking the kids to the beach or having brunch at a nice restaurant, here are 5 ideas for dads to use web and social technologies to make this day even more memorable.
- Tweet with the kid.
Whether you are at a Father’s Day barbeque party or at a jazz concert, live-tweet the event and give short updates on what’s going on. You can share photos with your Twitter followers by using third-party services such as Twitpic and Pikchur.
- Create a “Dad and Kids” moment on your iPhone.
You want to form a rock band with your kids and perform on stage? Or take mom and the kids to Mars? Apparently there is an iPhone App called Dad’s Perfect Baby that just does that. It lets you superimpose your face (or your little one’s) onto cute cartoon bodies and share with friends.
- Start baby blogging.
A lot of dads are tech-savvy and already keep personal blogs. However, there are several parents-friendly blogging sites out there that gives you a different experience as a blogger. For example, Baveo lets you create a public page for your baby; Wee Web offers baby-oriented prompts such as “How’s your kid today?”, “What makes your baby giggle?“; Keepaboo lets you create 3D flip book for your babies’ photos. These sites are meant to make your blogging life as a parent fun and easy.
- Sing online karaoke with the kid.
What’s more fun than singing your heart out with the mom and the kid and turn your house into a concert hall? The Karaoke Channel offers a huge selection of songs and let you record yourself (as long as you have a webcam and a microphone). You can share your karaoke recordings via email, or publishing directly to your Facebook or Deli.cio.us accounts.
- Feature your family on a magazine cover.
You have tons of family photos and want to showcase them in a glamorous way? flauntR, an online photo editor, provides a rich collection (20+) of mock magazine covers. You can choose your best photos from your PC or web albums. In just one click, your and your kid would instantly become the cover story!
