Praise for Dad's Book of Awesome Projects
“From circus stilts to cupcakes, these creations are of the ‘anybody can do it’ variety–less Martha, more Everyman (or woman).” ~ Parade Magazine
“Step-by-step instructions for superhero capes, eggshell cupcakes and a backyard swing set are included, all with a no-coddling, do-it-yourself mentality.” ~ San Francisco Chronicle
“The projects in Mike Adamick’s new craft collection, Dad’s Book of Awesome Projects, aren’t designed for experts–just families who want some good, possibly quite messy fun.” ~ Huffington Post Parents
This is a fun book for parents, teachers, scout leaders, camp counselors, and church leaders to use with middle-grade learners!
This book includes excellent stepped-out instructions with photos and a delightful narrative from this dad who obviously enjoys spending time creating crafts with his daughter. One thing I particularly liked was the author's tips about 'safety' when crafting and when playing with the projects.
I borrowed this book from the 'New Book' Non-Fiction shelf in the Children's Section at our local public library.
