★★★★★ "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!"

- Lauren Saunders (Sydney, AU)

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.

Collapsible content

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.

Absolutely fantastic

We ordered the Dad adventure diary and camera pack for Father’s Day and my partner has already taken photos on an epic adventure that he is keen to sit down and document in the diary. He was definitely impressed with the quality of the products.

Perfect Father’s Day gift

My husband is a very hands on and loving dad, but not very creative! I got him this on behalf of our kids for Father’s Day and it gives him something to look forward to do with the kids without the hassle of coming up with the ideas. The diary is very nice and well laid out too. It’s a wonderful memento and reminder to get out there and make memories.

Would recommend

Danielle Nicholson (NSW)
An excellent gift for all dads!!!

On the weekends when you have nothing planned and you know it’s going to be another park day, and the thought of going to the park again is draining haha!
You turn to the dad certified diary!
Firstly it gives the mums times to themselves and secondly it has numerous ideas that dads can do with their little ones. I bought a Polaroid camera as well and they loved coming home to show me all the pictures from their adventures.
My husband loves it too as there is no thinking involved, the card is picked and off they go :)
There are also blank cards for the kids to write their own ideas on, they loved sitting down and coming up with their own daddy adventures :)
Would highly recommend this diary. Plus it becomes a forever keepsake:)

Best present!!

My husband absolutely loved this present from the kids. It is so beautifully made. The kids are so excited to tick every adventure off together!!

S.B. (NSW)
Brilliant Idea!

My husband absolutely loved his Dadventure Diary we gave him for Fathers Day. He has already made a start filling in the adventures we have been having. Such a brilliant idea.

Larissa (NSW)
Such an awesome gift idea!

I bought this for my husband for Father's Day and he absolutely loved it! Our son is 2yrs old and just loves being outside - there's plenty of adventures in there to suit. It's not even that my husband isn't inventive with things to do with Noah, but now he has a beautiful diary to store all the memories in. Such a great keepsake (and beautifully presented in the box), that we will always be able to flick through. As soon as he got it, he started going through his phone and created an album for all the Dadventure photos :) This really is a brilliant way for Dad's to connect with their kids and make memories that last forever - thank you so much for creating it!
PS Can't wait for the Mum version!
