Fun activities for the whole family

Fun activities for the whole family

Who needs Father’s Day to celebrate dads across South Africa when you can show him love throughout the year? If you’re looking to spend some quality time with your dad or husband, why not take full advantage?

Here are some family activities that will make your beloved pops feel appreciated anytime of the year.

Take a hike

If your dad loves the great outdoors, he will enjoy this one. A good old-fashioned hike or gentle stroll is a great way for the family to spend time together while enjoying an open-air adventure. And it can be adapted to suit everyone’s physical capabilities.

Have a picnic

A picnic is also a great way to celebrate and get some fresh air. Although the weather is getting chillier by the day, if you have an outdoor heater then you’re good to picnic in the yard. Pack everyone’s favourite snacks, drinks and a blanket to sit on. Take a trip to a public park or set up a picnic spot in the comfort of your backyard. Just make sure to remind the men in your life that it’s all for them.

Head out on an adventure

Take a road trip, head out for a weekend camping trip or find a local car show if your dad is a real petrolhead. Keep the excursion as carefree as possible and make sure that you are properly insured before you head out on the road. Get a car insurance quote to make sure that you get the best value and peace of mind to live your way.

Film festivities

Your dad not exactly a fan of crowds? There are plenty of fun things to do that you won’t even have to put your shoes on for. You can host a film festival for the family and screen your dad’s favourite movies while serving him with his snacks of choice – all in the comfort of your living room.

Make a meal of it

If your dad is a bit of a foodie, rather than serving breakfast in bed, why not cook a meal together? All you need to do is get all the ingredients for his favourite meal — the rest you can do together. In the end you can all enjoy the meal as a family.


Live your way and pull out all the stops to make dad feel extra special.  Get an insurance quote to make sure you have the best value for money.
