Calling all Geek Dads !
GEEK DAD by Ken Denmead
Awesomely Geeky Projects and Activities for Dads and Kids to Share
Calling all Geek Dads!
What would it take to tear your kids away from their computer?
How about if they could launch a camera into orbit, make their own cartoon film, or even build a rope swing?
This hands-on manual is packed with fun-filled projects for dads and kids to enjoy together, from exploding drinks to water-slides.
At the start of each project, there is a table with summary information to give the reader an idea of what to expect from it, as well as symbols to indicate cost and difficulty. Most of the projects are accessible, affordable and don’t take too long, thus maximising the fun element of the activity. The instructions provide a structure to start adventures with kids and each of the projects allow for extensive customisation and personalisation.
There are projects for all ages, from five to fifteen years old. With easy to follow step-by-step instructions you can choose an activity to fill a few minutes or to make a weekend fly by.
It’s time to get geeky.
Geek Dad is soon to be adapted into a family film by the director of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
