Good Beginnings of Central Vermont really wants guys to spend more time with their kids. So much so that the nonprofit is sponsoring the Dare to Father Challenge, which awards prizes to dads, grandfathers, uncles and other male mentors who complete a series of age-appropriate activities with the kids in their lives. Most of the undertakings are as simple as singing a song to your infant or playing a board game with your 7- to 12-year-old. Men who complete even part of the challenge receive a free T-shirt; those who complete multiple tasks are eligible for gift certificates to Panera Bread, Positive Pie, Dunkin' Donuts and Walmart. Get started on the challenge by heading to the Waterbury Reservoir on Father's Day; Good Beginnings is hosting a free "canoe adventure."

Dare to Father Challenge: Find more information at goodbeginningscentralvt.org, or text "dare" to 802-595-0127. The deadline is August 31.
