Handy Dad – Dads Use Their Skills to Engage Their Children

Handy Dad - Dads Use Their Skills to Engage Their Children

Bought as a gift – now my kids want it too!

We recently purchased this (Handy Dad) as a gift for a friend getting married and “inheriting” an 11-yr old son in the process. When it arrived, we thought it a wonderful purchase that will fit them well, as both like to do projects together. It appears that the projects are simple, the instructions adequate and clear, and the ideas very interesting, so much so that the kids spent more time looking at the book before we wrapped it than we parents did. Ideas are grouped as Easy, Afternoon, or Weekend, and include things like a lava lamp, tie dye, a tire swing, a dollhouse, a zip line, a slip-n-slide, and a circus tent. What a variety! We gave it 4-stars based on our perception, and opted to not do 5 since we actually hadn’t tried any of the projects and don’t know how well they actually work.
