You might have heard the saying, that a father is a son’s first hero and a daughter’s first love. This Father’s Day, how do we say thank you to the men playing such an important role in our lives?

By giving him the gift of time, and doing things he loves to do! Here are some ideas:

#3 Hampstead Wildlife Park for the nature-loving dad

Home to a myriad of flora and fauna, Hampstead Wildlife Park is a haven for animals, nature lovers and photography enthusiasts alike. The family can choose to stroll on the boardwalk around the water lily-filled lake, or trek a little deeper into the park for a nature walk. If you have aeroplane lovers in the family, you can also stop by the adjacent aviation themed playground, the Oval, and wrap it up with a Father’s Day meal at the nearby Hangar66 Cafe!

#5 Escape room for the gamers and puzzle lovers

Being confined within four walls might not sound like a lot of fun—especially after the last few years of social distancing—but an escape room is well worth it! For around an hour, you, dad, and the rest of the family will be trapped in a room, and need to get creative solving puzzles, unravelling hidden messages and more to escape. Rooms come in various themes, and are perfect for dads who are fans of games, puzzles and solving mysteries.
