★★★★★ "Best Father's Day Gift Ever!"

"... It was a hit! My husband loves it, and the kids are so excited to go on all these amazing adventures together. The cards have a really great mix of adventures for little and big kids, and will be a source of endless ideas for different experiences, to create wonderful memories together. As cheesy as it sounds, it really will be the gift that keeps on giving. Best Father's day present ever!"

How It Works

Step 1: Pick a card, any card

Sort and shuffle the activity cards which are appropriate to you, your kids and the weather and let them choose your next Dadventure! There are even blank cards for you to add ideas specific to your interests and locale.

Step 2: Get out of the house and go on that Dadventure!

Pack your bags using the checklist at the front of the diary and enjoy your Dadventure! Take a few photos when you're having fun but remember to put your phone on 'do not disturb' and live in the moment.

Step 3: Save the fun times

Together, write your answers to simple questions that will capture the essence of your new favourite moments forever. Print off and stick in your photos and even let your kids draw something if you like.

Step 4: Reflect and learn

After every few Dadventures, use the provided space to look back over your Dadventures and talk to your kids about them. This is where the magic happens and where you'll REALLY get to know each other more.

What's a Dadventure?

A fun-filled adventure exclusive to Dad and the kids!

Who is the Dadventure Diary for?

The Dadventure Diary is for every dad who wants to be more fun, intentional and predictably present with his kids.
While the Dadventure Diary can be used with, and contains a list of Dadventure ideas for kids of all ages, the ideas contained in the Dadventure Deck are geared towards kids aged 2-13 years old.

Why do I need one?

We all need a little inspiration to break us out of the same old ruts, even in fatherhood. And we all need a little help remembering the good times we're intentionally creating with our kids. The Dadventure Diary will build the habit of setting aside time for your kids on a regular basis and give you loads of ideas for fun Dadventures to go on. It will make it easy to capture and record your Dadventures so you'll never forget them, and make you even more of a hero in your kids' eyes as they eagerly look forward to your time together.

How does it work?

The Dadventure Diary and Dadventure Deck of activity cards gets you and your kids out of the house to go on weekly adventure experiences together. After the Dadventure, the good times aren't left to fade but are saved forever through the stories, photos and drawings recorded in the diary. With regular reflection space, you'll get to know your kids on an even deeper level as your family looks back over treasured memories, reinforcing the good times and writing your legacy, one Dadventure at a time.

What are you waiting for!?

Start your Dadventures now and never stop! Record the memories and create a lifelong keepsake. When you’re an old man, you’ll be sitting on the couch with your children and grandchildren, flicking through worn pages of your Dadventure Diaries saying, “Remember this one…!?” Don’t leave your most priceless relationships up to chance - purposefully invest in them.

Seize the Day!

Our kids grow so fast that we never notice we're losing a lot of precious time with them. Dadventure diary gives me the opportunity to save lifelong treasures of our kids' core memories. I can't imagine how AMAZING this will be after 20-30 years and flipping each timeless page and reminiscing each adventure together with their kids!

Thanks for your review, Ronnel! We're honoured to be a part of preserving your family's precious moments. The idea of flipping through the Dadventure Diary after 20-30 years and reliving those timeless memories with the next generation is truly priceless. Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your family's journey.

Blown Away!

This has been such a cool investment. I am blown away by the quality of the Dadventure Diary. There is a huge range of ideas for all different ages. My husband has found so many great ideas for when he and our eldest go on little dates together. Such a great investment, both for now, and when your kiddies grow up and can go back and reflect!

Fantastic Fun For Fathers!

When my friend told me about the Dadventure Diary, I was dubious- my hubby doesn’t use a journal! But when I took the time to understand what the Dadventure Diary was, I was quickly won over. Life is so fleeting and what better way to intentionally bond and to capture it all on camera. Better yet, the ideas are there for you! My hubby always shared how much he was looking forward to Father-Son dates, and now he gets to have all the fun with none of the hard work. We highly recommend the Dadventure Diary. Fun Father’s Day Present for the intentional father.

Love it!

Bought the dadventure gift pack for hubby on Father’s Day and it was absolutely perfect! The package came with the camera, book, extra print sheets and even the glue dots ! My husband and two sons have already filled a few of the pages.. we finally have somewhere to display those adventure photos !
