Top 10 things to do with dad on Father’s Day
To be a dad in a child’s life is considered to be a very important role. Celebrate the times your father stood in and acted as a guide, a teacher and a protector with fun-filled and exciting activities on Father’s Day, celebrated Sunday 18 June 2017. Not, only is this a perfect time for you to bond with your father, but it’s also an opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime. Here’s a list of the 10 things to do with dad on Father’s Day:
GO TO A GAME TOGETHER
Surprise your dad with two tickets to one of his favourite sport event. You can start by looking for an upcoming game in your area, whether it’s cricket, rugby or soccer; there’s always a fun and exciting game happening somewhere in the country. The day you spend on the pavilion or field will create a special time for you and your dad to bond over a sport that he loves.
TAKE YOUR FATHER FOR BEER TASTING
Celebrate your dad by toasting him at one of South Africa’s many beer tasting venues. Not, only is this a wonderful time to experience something new together, but the event comes with a built-in gift. After your father has selected a few of his favourite beers at the brewery, purchase them and send them home with your dad.
VISIT SHIMANSKY FOR THE DIAMOND EXPERIENCE
If there’s one thing your dad can't deny is that knowledge is power. Discover the Shimansky Diamond Experience, which is located in the Clock Tower Precinct at the world-famous V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. Book a personally guided tour and experience the world of diamond’s like you’ve never seen it before while enjoying a glass of fine South African wine. To make the trip even more special spoil your dad with a one of a kind Evolym Men’s Cuff that will be waiting for him at the end of the tour in the luxurious Shimansky showroom.

EXPLORE THE OUTDOORS WITH YOUR DAD
How about starting a fun tradition with your dad on Father’s Day? Surprise your dad with an adventurous camping trip over Father’s Day weekend. It’s the perfect opportunity for you and your dad to set up a campfire and swap out stories. The two of you will definitely have a good bonding time in the outdoors.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH YOUR DAD
There’s nothing your dad won’t do for you. So, why not return the favour by giving your time to the community and helping those in need? Ask your dad if there’s a charity or a cause he feels strongly about then arrange a time you and your dad could visit the organisation. This is a great opportunity for both of you to give back the community.
ARRANGE A DAY OF GO-KARTING WITH YOUR DAD
Plan a day of adventure with your dad. You can start the day by taking him for a thrill ride at a go-karting centre. There’s no doubt that your dad will have fun cutting loose on the go-karting track. Give him the opportunity to let off some steam and let him zip around for an hour or two. You can even make a little game out of it, and compete with him for the number one position.
GO ON A FISHING TRIP WITH YOUR DAD
Make your dad’s year by organising a one-on-one fishing trip to one of his favourite South African fishing spots. A fishing trip is a perfect opportunity for you and dad to sit side by side and talk about life while enjoying the outdoors. Remember to pack a picnic basket filled with delicious treats that your dad will enjoy.
ENJOY A DAY OF GOLFING WITH YOUR DAD
Nothing says quality time quite like walking 18 holes with your dad on a golf course. To make the experience even more memorable you can hire a professional golf instructor on the day to help your dad improve his handicap. This is a great excuse to spend time with your dad while learning a new skill or two from the pro himself.
TREAT YOUR DAD TO A DAY OF RELAXATION
Even though your dad might seem tough on the outside he will still enjoy an entire day of relaxation at a spa. Spoil your dad with an entire day of pampering; book your dad for a massage, haircut and barbershop shave. Believe it or not, but he will thank you later.
TAKE YOUR DAD TO A CAR SHOW
Is your father absolutely fascinated by cars? If so, he would enjoy a one of a kind vintage car show in your area. Contact the local car clubs and find out where the latest vintage or electric car shows will be held and organise a ticket for you and your dad. Bond with your dad over his passion by asking him what his first car was like and what car he would like to drive today. You can even bring up the time he tried to teach you how to drive.
