Have you thought of?
Flying a kite at night, rigged with its own lights?
Making a comic strip out of Lego pieces?
Constructing a fortress-out of cake?
Geeky dads (and moms) can find these and more wildly imaginative activities in Geek Dad: Awesomely Geeky Projects and Activities for Dads and Kids to Share.
Whether Dad’s a Trekkie, a techie, or he just can’t get enough ‘frackin’ Battlestar Galactica, he’ll surely love holiday bonding over the wildly creative concoctions in Ken Denmead’s GEEK DAD: Awesomely Geeky Projects and Activities for Dads and Kids to Share (Gotham Books; May 4, 2010; $17)
While Dad has time off for winter holidays and kids are cooped up inside, there’s no better Christmas gift than a guide to “LEGO Holiday Trees” and the electronic “Geeky Wreath.”
These are just a few ideas from a wide array of bonding projects, which originated on the Wired.com blog GEEK DAD and quickly fueled a craze. Author Ken Denmead is an engineer turned geeky dad who discovered his inner calling through quirky projects, crafts, and fun times with his kids. His compilation is a fullyillustrated, innovative guide to games and adventures, such as flying video cameras on balloons, electronic origami, and the ultimate homemade board game.
