A Constructive Day Out for Dads!

17 January 2018


The first Dad's Day Out sessions took place at Coventry Transport Museum last weekend. The sessions were well-attended with a crowd of families waiting to join in.

Families really enjoyed the chance to come inside on a chilly January day and spend quality time together learning new things.

Some of the positive feedback included:

"My kids imagination is better than I thought"

"Friendly and unusual activities"

"You can have fun without electronics." 

"Spend more time playing and creating."

"It was so fun"

"My daughter can drill!"
