Hello ladies.

We are in the process of compiling a resource for fathers. As we know one of the best way for kids and adults to bond/interact is through play.

Some fathers are very good at making games up but others are not and really struggle to come up with imaginative ways to interact with their kids in a way that both find rewarding.

We are looking to make a compilation of games etc that can be played with kids in all situations especially those that are Daddy specific.

All suggestions would be welcome eg- rainy day, in the car, bathtime etc.

If you know any interactive games that your husbands use to play with or help or teach things to your nippers please post them here so that others can benefit, also if you know of any games etc. that you use that could be of use to dads when looking after the nippers of any age please wham them here. The more the merrier.

Why would games be father-specific? What's gender got to do with anything? Sounds fishy to me.

I agree, why can't dads do what mums do? Am thinking baking, art, singing, dancing and, controversial, getting on the floor and playing with their toys.
