Make Dad’s Day Special During Lockdown
We’re stuck in lockdown and the usual family feast at a restaurant just won’t fly.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t make dad’s day special.
Check out our ideas for lockdown food and fun at home this Father’s Day.
It’s no surprise that when we venture out for breakfast on Father’s Day, Dad will usually order the big breaky. You know the one that comes with pretty much everything on the menu? Well luckily, this is something the kids (or mum, depending on the ages) can whip up on Sunday morning then serve to dad in bed! Go all out with sausages, bacon, eggs, baked beans, fried tomato, mushrooms and toast. Fresco Marketplace and Brennans Quality Meats have everything you need to bring it together. However, if Dad isn’t a big breaky fan, K’pane, Muffin Break and Bakers Delight have some delicious pastries or muffins to do the trick!
Competition is On
Is there a competitive streak to your Dad? Does he love a challenge? Or maybe he is just a big kid at heart and enjoys playing games. Kmart has so many cool games for the whole family to enjoy both indoors and out. From darts to water guns, and backyard cricket to board games. Or maybe Dad is a gamer? EB Games has a huge range of multi-player, simulation, action and party games. Order now in time to click and collect.
Hold a Backyard Picnic
Set up a backyard picnic for Dad complete with a grazing platter, sandwiches or even a BBQ. Fresco Marketplace, Chicken Butchery and Bennans Quality Meats have all the ingredients you need to make this come to life. Kmart has a range of picnic rugs and outdoor accessories that will complete the look. Get dad his favourite newspaper or book and let him have a little snooze under a shady tree.
Hold a Pizza Party
Who doesn’t love pizza?! Sure, you can easily order and have it delivered but it’s way more fun to make them yourself! Bakers Delight makes fresh pizza bread in store daily or try your own from all ingredients found at Fresco Marketplace. Get some backyard pizza-making inspo here.
