Description

Find your nearest woodland, forestry commission location or even a large park. Start by challenging the children to find the best walking stick (not necessarily the largest - discouraging the use of whole trees), and then head off like polar explorers discovering new territory.

At some point a young child will likely pretend to use the stick as a gun, another will want to use it as a machete to decapitate the flora. As long as they are not doing irreparable damage to nature, encourage their imagination.

Rationale

Play imagination games pretending to become a pirate captain, a soldier etc. The children will enjoy playing in this way, and it will create a fun environment for the dads to connect with their kids. Conversations will likely naturally develop and friendships deepened.

Outcome

An enjoyable way to spend time together as fathers and children.

Other requirements

This conceptual idea does not have any additional requirements
