If you're a kid, you don't have much money laying around. (If you do, I'd like to talk to you about some unique investment opportunities sometime soon) But, Father's Day doesn't have to be expensive. The Jefferson girls figured this out a long time ago. Just suggest doing things your dad wants to do - and he'll pick up the tab. 'Cuz that's what dads do. They pick up the tab. For almost everything. Because if they buy you dumb stuff, they get to justify all the dumb stuff they buy.

But you can have a lot of fun for cheap.

Here's a list of 5 things you can do for Father's Day that are cheap and fun.

    Take Your Dad to Play Video Games

    He'll insist on being Dale Earnhardt Jr. when you race each other on the NASCAR game. Very important - don't taunt him when you kick his butt, because - hey, it's Father's Day.

    Go Pre-Season Scouting For Monster Bucks

    This is the one time your dad will dress in matching outfits with you. As a bonus, you might get to see some of the bucks your dad shot at and missed last year.

    Search For Buried Treasure

    Look closely at the photo. It's a fact that all dad's love metal detectors. And you never know what you'll find on an old farm. It could be guns or gold left behind from the Civil War. Or, it could be a piece off a plow that your dad probably damaged by hitting a big rock when he was a teenager still living on the farm. But, it's always fun to dig in the dirt, right?

    Go to the Barbershop With Him on Saturday

    You know what's really fun? Go with your dad to the barbershop after he's lost some stupid bet on the radio and has to get his head shaved. Good times, good times...
