What to do with Dad this Father's Day- 16 June 2013

Tired of seeing your kids glued to the games console?  Why not have an adventure this Father’s Day and do something with your kids that is really fun, creates closer bonds, doesn’t break the bank and creates memories to last a lifetime.  It doesn’t have to be a thrill-seeking adventure – you could have a braai in the back garden or a walk on the mountain, learn photography together,  go to the theatre
