Treat new papas to handmade gifts from the kids plus fun experiences with love from the whole family! Here’s 9 ideas to try…
On Dad day, we recommend fathers of all ages topple the sofas and build blanket forts, eat cereal for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and throw epic Dad shapes on the dance floor. Because you can! Here’s our list of Father’s day gifts to buy, make and do.
3 things to do for Father’s Day
Build a blanket fort
We bet, when purchasing a new sofa, Dads base their choice mainly on how said piece of furniture would perform in a blanket fort construction. While he’s weighing them up, here’s how to put together a fort kit he and the kids will LOVE.
Fly a kite
All you need is a bit of wind, a large stretch of even ground, and a kite. Here’s how you can make one together.
Nothing beats roasted marshmallows by Dad – he gets it just right. Take the whole family on a camping trip where he can pass on fundamental ‘mallow roasting knowledge. Find cool places to camp at Canopy and Stars.
3 DIY Father’s Day gifts to make
Serve cereal for pudding
If Dad’s not the tie-wearing type, opt of offerings of cereal. Edit the topping to suit: add micro cars for Formula 1 fans, wind-up toys for prankers or sweets for papas with a sweet tooth. A winning recipe, we’re can assure!
Make an indoor water garden
It’s not an in-wall aquarium but it’ll do. Brighten living spaces with an indoor water garden for him. This is such a clever idea we’re thinking of gifting this to every dude we know.
Mini sardine can dioramas
Craft it with kids! Spend a few minutes discussing their favourite Dad memories then gift him with mini dioramas creations this Father’s Day. This could be something you make for him to unwrap or something you craft together with Dad.
