Father’s Day is a chance for us to appreciate and acknowledge the important role that father’s play in the life of their children and partners. We wanted to create an activity that will allow children to get creative, give them something to present to their dads as well as offering an opportunity for children and their fathers to bond.
We decided to hold a free Father’s Day pop up at the shopping village in Cranebrook. It was a wonderful morning, spending time with families in our community. Kids were able to come to our pop up and decorate photo frames that could be gifted to their father’s.
We loved seeing the number of Dad’s that came and joined in their kids in doing our activity resulting in a fun and intimate bonding experience for both child and father.
We got some great feedback from some of the Dad’s who came along on the day, who expressed that it was great to have something to do with their children in the community that was easily accessible. Not only were kids able to create personalised gifts for Dad, families were able to get information about our programs and get referrals if required, as well as making new connections with members of the community.
We wish all of the great Dad’s out there, a Happy Father’s Day and we hope all of the kids enjoyed creating their special present for Dad!
