Plenty of Father’s Day fun for the little Dahlings
CHILDREN can ensure their dads have a fantabulous Father’s Day at the Roald Dahl Museum, in Great Missenden.
Roald Dahl was a devoted dad who was always coming up with ways to amuse and entertain his children – for example, climbing up to their bedroom windows and pretending to be the BFG.
He obviously aspired to be like Danny’s dad in Danny the Champion of the World, who Danny says is ‘the most marvellous and exciting father a boy ever had’.
The museum, in High Street, is offering some extra-usual ways to celebrate Father’s Day this year, so grab your dad, grandad, brother, uncle or friends and start planning your trip. Chocolate
On Saturday, channel your inner chocolate factory owner and create a chocolatey masterpiece using sprinkles and sweets.
Brilliant to give as a Father’s Day gift, or as an activity to enjoy together. Adults are welcome to have a go.
On Sunday, join Timothy Knapman and Joe Berger, the creators of the brilliant book, Superhero Dad.
They will read from the book, show you some of their doryhunky drawings and will be happy to sign copies of the book, which will be available to buy in the museum shop.
Fantastic Pheasant Hunt
On Saturday and Sunday, you can go on a pheasant hunt just like Danny and his dad in Danny the Champion of the World.
Collect the clues around the museum and be in with the chance of a prize.
