As you may or may not be aware, Father’s Day is coming up!
The 17th of June this year marks another occurrence of the tradition celebration of fatherhood and male parenting – what better time of the year is there for all those Dads out there to spend time with their kids?
There’s a huge variety of activities that a father can take part in along with his child (or children), from a simple cinema visit to a day at the beach or a holiday. We at Wicken Toys have a few additional suggestions in mind!
Get your Dad up and moving with a game of table tennis with the Kettler Stockholm Indoor Table or the even more durable anti-dazzle Champ Indoor Table! These two models come with everything you need to get started, including nets, bats and balls too. A classic choice, table tennis is sure to put a nostalgic smile on the face of any father. There are outdoor variations of both the Stockholm and the Champ tables so if you’re feeling optimistic about the summer ahead you can prepare with these weatherproof table tennis kits.
We couldn’t go talking about Dads and not mention football. There’s no more traditional or stereotypical a father/son bonding session than a kick around the back garden with a football. Why not add that extra pinch of stadium realism by adding a TP Goal?
Your little one can experience the thrill of a penalty shootout while Dad gets to relive his own childhood – after all, us adults are all just big kids at the core! If you’ve got a little more room in your garden then consider going for a more authentic experience and moving up to a TP Giant Goal? The larger size makes it more of a realistic challenge, and with the UEFA Euro 2012 tournament still ongoing there’s everything to play for! Get your Dads and lads to don their favourite kits and battle it out on the turf.
For more ideas, take a look around the Sports and Games section of our website. Alternatively, if you feel your father would like to make the most of the (hopefully) long hot summer, check out our selection of Above Ground Pools and various inflatables so the younger ones can join in the fun too.
Whatever you decide to do with your Dads, we at Wicken Toys wish them a happy Father’s Day, and hope you make the most of it!
