Nothing says Happy Father’s Day like kids spending quality time with their dad. So why not spend that time playing with toys both kids and dads will love? Here are 5 toys kids can share with dad:

1. Grill: Dads love grilling in the summer and now little ones can imitate him with their toy grill. Kids can work side-by-side with their old man as they sizzle up some treats to make barbeques a success!

Blanket Tricks: Turn Kid’s Toys into Forts

Blanket tips for imaginative play

Blankets provide your family with warmth, but they can also be used to spark imaginative play. The power of imagination is incredible. Do you remember placing a blanket over chairs or a table and creating a secret fort when you were a kid? Children can still use these items to create forts but they could also use many toys found in their playroom to create these magical hangouts. Here are some toys that we thought would make some pretty cool forts:

Climber Fort:

A large blanket can be placed over top of the climber and kids can pretend to be camping out in a tent in the desert or in a rocket ship ready for takeoff. Little ones can also place a blanket on top of the platform, stairs and slide to crawl underneath and pretend they are at the bottom of a ship or hanging out underground.

Place a blanket over the table and this fort can fit two small kids underneath. You can supply your children with a flashlight and they can tell each other stories during a sleepover! For extra room, place chairs on each side and kids can spread out to enjoy the comfort of their brand new fort.
