Now to be honest, we're not big on Father's Day on this house - a card and maybe a small homemade present suffices (and he should thank himself lucky to get that after the Mother's Day debacle this year.) In previous years I have mainly relied on childminder, nursery, Rainbows, Brownies and even school to provide these homemade delights, therefore abdicating me completely from the dreaded 'craft' and making things. Typically however only one of these has produced the goods this year (thank you Brownies) leaving Little Miss Sunshine (and me) in the lurch on the present front and no cards at all. Enter Blue Peter *drum roll please* (for those of you not from the UK this is a kids programme on the BBC that has been going longer than me and is famed for it's makes').

Of course if the whole Father's Day thing is a big thing for you but you've still left it until the last minute there's always online vouchers for a whole manner of things from experience days, days out, courses, trips and even goods and if it doesn't have a voucher you could always make one.
We do often go out for a bit of a day trip - nothing fancy just a picnic and some games and I had planned (yes I had actually planned this bit) that we might go to a National Trust place or similar and do the picnic thing, fly a kite and all that but looking at the weather forecast letting him choose a film on the telly looks like a top plan at the moment.
Whatever you do - have fun and Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!
