Sunday 30th May 2021, 10-11.30am



The Discovery Garden, Hotham Park, Bognor Regis, West Sussex


Who is this for:

This session is for Dads, Grandads, Uncles and male carers and their children of all ages.


The fun to be had...

Join us at Dangerous Dads for a morning of forest school activities set in the Discovery Garden in Hotham Park. We've designed some fun activities perfect for dads and male carers to enjoy with their children. At Dangerous Dads our aim is to provide an opportunity for our families to spend some quality time together, which is much needed after a year or so of restrictions! Make some fun and long lasting memories together and hopefully learn a new skill too.

There will be fire lighting, whittling sticks to toast marshmallows over the campfire, a sawing activity to make wood cookie medallions. Bug hunting, a mud kitchen to make some mud pies, the hammock to relax in, a swing and not forgetting some exploring and playing too. We will have story time near the end of the session with hot chocolate available for the children, so please bring a cup along for your child, plus one for yourself too as we will be offering hot drinks to adults too.
