Though some of them might be allergic to cleaning baby’s poop, Dads will always have a special spot in the hearts of children. It’s amazing how they can smoothly turn from being a serious working dad to a funny Sesame Street-sounding creature who can tickle (sometimes literally) the little one’s fancy. It’s heartwarming how, despite the hard and manly facade, these guys may shed a tear when watching growing up videos of their kids.
This June, these dudes we call fathers deserve to be “extra loved”. As we celebrate Father’s Day, let’s have a family bonding that Daddy will surely love.
Let’s get physical with our Dad Bud
Dads, regardless of their age, will always love the action and a little physical challenge. They were once these young, happy-go-lucky single men who spent their free time on basketball, tennis or even the martial arts. Parenthood and family life may have limited their time for sports, so this Father’s Day, why not give Dad the chance to show the kids some moves?
Eastwood Mall will be hosting a Dad Bud event to allow fathers to enjoy action-packed sports activities, hot rides, cool sneaks and more. There will be an Ultimate ‘Dad n Bud’ Challenge on June 17 at the Eastwood Mall Open Park and Central Plaza at 2PM. Let dad put his game face on with exciting games and challenges for a chance to win prizes! Plus, kids get to enjoy Fitness Challenges, Kiddie Crossfit, Muay Thai and Boxing Class with his big bud Daddy for FREE courtesy of Crossfit MNL, Anytime Fitness, and Fitness First.
If you don’t feel like going out, you can just head to that covered court inside your village or just free up some space in the home garage and start an exciting family tournament of your chosen sport. 🙂
Shoot some arrows with Dad for only PHP200
Archery is probably as old as the Stone Age, but it is still so alive in this modern era. It has become a competitive sport and recreational activity that proves to provide many benefits. This sport helps us develop our focus, precision, control, and yes, willpower. It’s something Dads and everyone in the family will definitely enjoy.
There are a lot of places in the metro where you can try Archery. Just google it and feel free to choose which one is most accessible to your family. However, if you’re looking for an affordable archery experience, check out DMZ Archery Range in Quezon City. For only PHP200 per person, For 200 pesos, you get Unlimited shooting inclusive of basic instructions, Unlimited arrows, Equipment rental, Range use, and Target face for souvenir.
Experience nature with Dad
Taking Instagram-worthy photos aside, spending quality time with Dad at the beach, in the mountains or at a nearby park is always a good idea. There’s something about nature that makes moments more special. Staring at the beauty of nature while standing next to each other will surely help Dad and kids (and yes, even Dad and Mom) connect more to each other.
Watch Incredibles 2 movie with Dad
Incredibles 2 is a great family movie that kids will surely enjoy watching with their Dad. #Legendaddy fathers who will buy a cinema ticket for Incredibles 2 on June 17, 2018 at Cinema 5 of Trinoma will get one Movie Snackbar flavored popcorn and drink.
Have a relaxing staycation with Dad
You actually don’t have to shell out a peso if you really want to bond this Father’s Day. Microwave that popcorn and watch Netflix in the room with Dad. Order boxes of pizza and play indoor games like Taboo or Jenga. Make sure the rooms are cozy and clean so Dad will surely be able to relax and have fun.
