The game of 'The Floor is Lava' had begun...
The stakes were as high as the excitement in their voices.
Jumping from the island of a pillow to the mountain of the lounge.
Each successful jump met with cheers.
Each new challenge accepted with the bravery of seasoned adventurers.
The game had run its course, and a quiet sense of longing took its place.
That sudden stillness after the thrill of play?
When the echoes of laughter fade and you're left with the daunting task of rekindling the dwindling embers of imagination?
It was in the midst of that silence, watching the children's eager eyes slowly cloud over with boredom, that an idea was conceived...
The concept of the Family Indoor Activity Deck began to take shape.
A deck that's not just a band-aid for boredom but a trove of endless adventure, waiting to be unlocked.
The cards, a beacon of imagination...
Inviting every member of the family, regardless of age, to dive back into the warmth of shared stories and activities.
They're a promise that the end of one game only marks the beginning of another.
While this idea has been secretly cooking under the hood at Dad Certified for a while now...
We're fine-tuning the last of the illustrations, each one a vibrant call to action for fun-seekers like you.
(in time for early December delivery)
Let me not forget to announce that the Dadventure Diary - Box Set, is finally back in stock after selling out over Father's Day!
All pre-orders were dispatched yesterday and the team is ready and waiting for your order.
But, act quick...
They're the perfect Christmas gift, but with limited supply, they won't last long before they sell out again!
It's about crafting a legacy of joy, bonding, and unscripted happiness.
To make each day with your family not just another day...
But a chapter in the grand story of parenthood.
To make the journey less about 'getting through it' and more about savouring every laugh, every leap, every shared victory over the lava monsters of life.
Cheering you on!
