Who Let the Dads Out

Alient game

Who let the Dads Out is a monthly dads and kids activity running at the Lighthouse Project every 4 weeks.

Who Let the Dads Out is based on the model of a traditional parent and toddler format, but usually takes place on a Saturday morning and includes a few masculine touches, such as bacon butties and newspapers. The play & activity sessions are open to anyone to just drop in. Sessions run between 10 am – 12 noon  once a month every 4 weeks, cost is only £2 per family (inc bacon butties).

So if you are stuck for something to do, or somewhere to go, or are on a budget, or you just want some fun time with your children then make your way over to Who Let the Dads Out.

They group is aimed at providing 2 hours of activity focussed play time for dads, grandads, or male carers, and their kids. If you are interested in attending just come along, no need to book in advance, all visitors and new families are welcome.

For too long Mums and Tots have had all the fun, but now there is something new about to burst forth that means Mums get some time off and Dads get to spend some focussed and creative time with their kids in a safe environment.

PS, don’t tell mum… no tea and biscuits for us, we do bacon butties!!I thought that would grab your attention.

Who Let The dads Out is one of our newest projects aimed at supporting families, and in particular dad’s. We see the project as adding value and diversity to the current provision of parent and toddler groups and child contact centres within the town.

Many dads who spend a lot of the week at work struggle to have that quality time with their children and because this is typically mum’s domain they can also feel intimidated and inadequate about what to do and how to play with toddlers. Who Let The dads Out is aimed at trying to help dads to play and to build up close relationships with their children. Many dads underestimate the enormous effect it has on their lives when they bring their first baby home, and it is a sad fact that many relationships that fail do so within two years of a child being born. This is something that we want to try and reduce through this project and by providing good support to dads.
