I wasn’t able to attend this Daddy Daughter activity but I wish I had! Here’s how it went down:
In the weeks prior to the activity, the leaders taught the girls the importance of having good communication with their families. They also prepared invitations and planned together for the activity.
At the activity the girls shared something about each of their dads when they were younger. It was a great way for them to find out about their dads then share what they learned.
Then they divided into two groups that rotated to the following activities:
- The first activity helped them “practice” their communication skills. It was an obstacle course that they guided their dad’s through. The dad’s were blindfolded the girls told them how to overcome the obstacles in their way.
- For the second activity the girls and dads had to work as a team to create their own bottle rockets by decorating 2 litre bottles with patterned duct tape and other craft supplies. These rockets were later launched from some PVC pipe hooked up to an air compressor. The girls and dads loved talking together to create a plan and carrying out the shooting off of each rocket! Who wouldn’t?
The decorations and refreshments were rocket themed. Moon pies are an easy solution for this. And the refreshments might have been sweet but making the rockets with their dads was the real treat of the night!
