We've teamed up with Peppa Pig publishers Penguin Random House once more - this time there's a fabulous Father's Day activity book up for grabs, as well as a prize bag chock-full of Peppa-themed goodies.

In this spirit of generosity, we're asking you how you'll be treating Dad this Father's Day - will he get pancakes and a lie-in, or are you planning something altogether more extravagant? (Personally we'd recommend a good book, but that's just us...)

If you're stuck for ideas, Peppa's new sticker activity book Daddy And Me, is now out, packed with amazing creative activities for the kids to enjoy with Dad. Check out this brilliant free Peppa activity sheet for an idea of what to expect!

For a chance to win a copy of Daddy And Me and the Peppa Pig goodie bag, share your Father's Day treat ideas before Monday 15th June.

This competition is now closed. The winner will be announced shortly.

We'll be starting the day with a lovely card that my daughter has "written" a message in. Just scribbles because she's a toddler! smile

Me and my daughter will prepare a breakfast (waffles!) for us all as a treat. Throughout the day, we will treat daddy. Maybe a film that he'd like to watch, a foot massage, some quiet time and a nice ale.

Think he'll love it! smile It's his second ever father's day and my daughter is big enough to help celebrate her daddy now. She LOVES Peppa Pig, by the way. Almost as much as she loves her daddy! smile

Daddy will have two cards one brought from me with my sons drawings in it (he is 2 so more colouring than drawing ) and one home made one done at nursery. We will give daddy a little personalised gift over breakfast, we will all have breakfast in bed together. We rarely get chance to eat together in the week due to work comittments so we will have a special dinner all together. Not sure what we will do in the day yet, it depends on the great british weather!

We are going to the air show at Weston - we can play in the sand while the planes fly by and amuse Daddy

My husband works away so the weekend will be very special as he'll be home for the first time in over 3 weeks. My son's school does a Father's Day morning on the friday before. The fathers and kids do an art activity together and then the kids do a little show. Last year I went (with my son shouting 'who's the daddy? Who's the daddy? You are mummy!' When he saw me at the gate! My husband has arranged leave so he'll be the daddy this year!

We'll be camping, so treats will involve whatever yummy food we can source at the festival we're at!

We'll give Daddy a lovely lie in. Then go to the Park for the Morning. Then round the Familys in the afternoon for Fish and Chips and to make the exciting announcement that we are expecting DC2!

We'll actually be on holiday on Fathers Day so hopefully he'll be enjoying a well deserved break anyway!

He'll also get 2 cards 'written' by DS 2 & DD 8 months.

He'll get a lie-in which he'll love (they are extremely rare in our house!) and then breakfast in bed (bacon butties!).

Gift wise he'll be getting a crate of ale & a CD of one of his favourite bands.

No doubt he'll get lots of kiddy kisses & cuddles throughout the day too! smile

Peppa Pig and her family are always belittling daddy pig, so it seems odd to associate PP with Father's Day IMO.

Definitely a lie-in with breakfast-in-bed to start the day. A trip out in the early afternoon, maybe an air-show or a car museum visit, followed by a outdoor picnic. An evening out to a posh restaurant, and COMPLETE access to the T.V. remote for all other times of the day!!!

Daddy Pig is a bit of a feminist icon in our house! Love the episodes where he is cooking and cleaning whilst Mummy Pig is working. grin

Anyway, I digress...

For this Daddy's Day, our very own Daddy Pig will be gently woken from his slumber with the words "WAKE UP DADDY, IT'S MORNING!" screamed into his ear by our 4 year old dd, who will present him with a lovely card. I will make a full English breakfast for us all and then we will head off to a nice family walk on london's Hampstead Heath. There may be a pub lunch involved smile

A lie in, craft beer, Chinese food and comics. He's a man of simple pleasures but we wouldn't be without him.

Theimpossiblegirl Mon 01-Jun-15 19:24:52

We're taking him out for a cooked breakfast then everyone will walk the dog together with no moaning (hopefully).

Home made greeting card & family day all together depending on the weather.

Sephy Mon 01-Jun-15 20:41:26

A lie in, but then the chance of some lovely one on one daddy-daughter time while I have a nice long bath...

He'll get cards and a small pressie, but we won't make a massive deal of it.

Chocolate cake and ham have been requested here. I will strongarm DS into writing something nice in a card (or at least dictating a nice message) and we will all go out somewhere for the day, probably to look at trains.

mollychopin Mon 01-Jun-15 21:10:52

Fingers crossed, depending on the weather, a family BBQ with the grandparents too. Gifts will a good DVD and a homemade gift... Which is yet to be made!

Send daddy a video as he is travelling

Princesspond Mon 01-Jun-15 21:17:37

I'm tired I Mis-read that as Percy pig goodies. We will be buying Percy pigs, that's all he requires to make him happy

AdamantEve Mon 01-Jun-15 21:18:32

I'll be giving DP excemption from doing any nappy changes on Fathers Day and he will be getting a hamper of little gifts such as car air fresheners and shower gels, we also have a personalised T Shirt for him which he can wear in bed, no chance he'll wear it out the house, too 'cool' for that!

Catnuzzle Mon 01-Jun-15 21:22:30

Bought and home made cards. A dvd to watch with a bottle of red and a spa day with treatments at a lovely hotel (for both of us) grin

Kraggle Mon 01-Jun-15 21:22:34

Dh will get a lie in, a card artfully scribbled on by 2yo dd and whilst she and I go and visit my Pa he can play in his present of an Xbox game!
