Take them to fun factory in Lekki
Fun Factory in Lekki Phase 1 will be filled with the cries of excited children. Your kids should be among them. They offer games, toys, bouncy castles, train rides, carousels, swimming pools and other creative and interactive games for children. If your kids are between the ages of 1 to 10, it is the perfect place to go.
Spend valuable time with them
Present economic realities demand that both parents are economically engaged. They rarely have time for their children since they leave home very early in the morning and return late at night. In between, the children are left with a house help or family member. However, for Children’s day they want you to spend valuable time with them because it is a long children’s day.
Buy them boxes of chocolates
Children love chocolates. If you have never bought chocolate for your kids before, you should surprise them with a box. Make it more interesting by having a despatch rider deliver it to them. They will be animated and show it off to their friends. The welcome they will give when you return from work will nearly bring tears to your eyes.
Have them join the March parade
March parade is the most prominent event on Children’s day. Smart looking and well-dressed children, gather at an open ground where they show-off their marching skills to the admiration of a government dignitary – local government chairman, government or any other government representatives. The parade is for the children to have fun.
