They may be our dads, but that doesn't mean they don't have an inner child that loves appearing from time to time. Dads often lay down the law, tell us off when we've been naughty, cheer us up when we're sad and generally make us feel protected. They'll stand up for us, even if it means putting themselves in danger. They can also be a bit macho - but there's always mom around to keep them in check!
And then there's the softer, fun-loving side and nothing's better than a dad when he lets his hair (or beard?) down! What was your dad like? And if you're a dad, how do you have fun with your kids? Do you love playing pranks? If so, then here's a selection of ideas that you may want to try next time around!
