The Dangerous Book for Boys is so popular that its release quickly spawned an entire franchise of books, games and etc. – including The Daring Book for Girls. Last Father’s Day we only had a boy so I bought my husband the original book to help him remember all the exciting and mysterious things about being a boy. More then just a simple activity book, it aims to ignite curiosity with sections like “Navajo Code Talkers’ Dictionary” and “The Golden Age of Piracy”.
I always knew I liked that Joel over at Made by Joel and his round up of 5 Crafts for Father’s Day confirmed that when it comes to kids and play, we’re cut from the same cloth.
This last idea is my favorite. Marie from Make and Takes realized last year that the gift her other half would most enjoy was some good old fashioned competition. So she started an annual family tournament between dad and the kids. It included several games, prizes, and a trophy for the winner – which is passed on to the new winner every year. And my-oh-my what a trophy – isn’t it hillarious?! Be sure to head over for all the details on the events of the day.
I hope this round up has given you lots of inspiration on how to give Dad the gift of shared time with the kids. One more great idea – sign up dad and the kid(s) for the summer e-course Through the Lens: Explorations in Photo Journaling. Check out our give away for a free spot for one lucky winner as well as our offer for a 10% discount for all.
