How to make Dads day special during lockdown

Even though we may be stuck at home and can’t treat dad to a big breakfast out or a dinner at the pub that doesn’t mean that we still can’t make dads day special at home. We have put together some ideas, tips and tricks on how to make dad feel special while in lockdown.

The Big Breaky

It’s usually 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 has anything and everything on it? Well lucky this is something the kids (or mum depending on the ages) can whip up Sunday morning and treat dad breakfast in bed! Complete with Sausages, Bacon, Eggs, Baked Beans, Hash Browns, Mushrooms and Toast Ritchies IGA and Organics MattR have everything you need to make it come together. However, if Dad isn’t a big breaky fan, some pancakes or waffles with fresh fruit may also do the trick!

Create an at home beer tasting experience

This is one Mum may have to purchase but creating an at home beer tasting experience is one way that Dad can feel like his at the pub. Ritchies IGA Liquor has loads of variety when it comes to craft beer and most can be purchased singularly. So why not head into Ritchies IGA and purchase a few cans of their craft beers and pour an amount into individual glasses and let dad enjoy the taste!

Hold a Backyard Picnic

Why not hold a backyard picnic for Dad complete with a grazing platter, sandwiches or even a BBQ! Ritchies IGA has all the ingredients you need to make this come to life. Target also have a range of picnic rugs, plates and glassware that will complete the look. Target also stock a range of outdoor toys such as Wahu Cricket set, Easy Score Soccer Set, Grip Ball and more so you can also enjoy some games outdoors!

Hold a Pizza Party

Who doesn’t love pizza! Sure, you can easily order this and get it delivered but it’s way more fun to make them yourself! Bakers Delight make fresh pizza bread in store daily and Ritchies IGA and Organics MattR have all the perfect pizza ingredients. Get some backyard pizza-making inspo here.
