PRETEND PLAY & SERIOUS FUN @ HOME
Below are our FREE activities for all Community Heroes to enjoy some pretend play and serious fun at home for Father's Day
Father’s Day 2021 will be one like none of us have experienced before. Here in Melbourne, we can’t take Dad, Grandad or that special friend to their favourite café or restaurant, but we CAN make it one to remember.
Click on the images below to find everything you need to make this one of the most memorable Father’s Days yet! (Grandad's and special friends included too of course!)
Give Dad, Grandad or that special friend/care-giver a memorable Father's Day with gifts money cannot buy.
Out of this World Card
Love someone to pieces?
Do you know a Dad that is loved to pieces? Start by spoiling him with our super easy card. We have included options for Grandad's and special friends too.
Surprise Dad with a bag designed by you and filled with his favourite treats. Watch this video by Sunny Lin as she teaches you how to make it. All you need is a paper bag, scissors, off-cut of material or wrapping paper and sticky tape. If you don't have a paper bag, don't worry Sunny will show you how to make one with paper.
Love him Hand's Down?!
Show Dad how much he means to you with this simple heART activity- all you need are your pencils. Click image for template options.
There’s that age-old saying “a way to a man’s heart is though his stomach” 😊. Community Heroes can transform into little chefs to bake n’ create these awesome BBQ cupcakes and hit Dad’s sweet spot! Click the image to access the recipe from In the Kids Kitchen.
Combine Dad’s love for sports with his child/rens love by putting their hand prints on Dad's favourite sports ball. You can use balls for football, cricket, basketball, baseball, tennis or soccer. Find a ball and some non-toxic paint, dip hands in paint, press down on the ball and count to 10, then release and wait till it dries!
What is your Dad's favourite food or drink? Enlist the help of an adult, or older Community Hero to make/buy him that delicious dish or drink he loves. Take it to the next level by decorating your “restaurant” with a beautiful table setting, and personalised menu. You could even dress up as his personal waiter/chef!
Create his favourite Café / Restaurant @home
The current restrictions in Victoria don’t need to put a stop to getting Dad, Grandad or your special friend a gift to show them how much they are loved and appreciated this Father’s Day. All these ideas can be made with items around your home and will fill hearts with love and joy.
Find Dad's sweet spot!
Create a piece of heART and a gift at the same time and scoll down for more ideas!
