Maker Dad: Lunch Box Guitars, Antigravity Jars, And 22 Other Incredibly Cool Father-Daughter DIY Projects

As the editor in chief of MAKE magazine, Mark Frauenfelder has spent years combing through DIY books, but he’s never been able to find one with geeky projects he can share with his two daughters. Maker Dad is the first DIY book to use cutting-edge (and affordable) technology in appealing projects for fathers and daughters to do together. These crafts and gadgets are both rewarding to make and delightful to play with. What’s more, Maker Dad teaches girls lifelong skills—like computer programming, musicality, and how to use basic hand tools—as well as how to be creative problem solvers. The book’s twenty-four unique projects include:Drawbot, a lively contraption that draws abstract patterns all by itself

Disclosure: Not every Mom is like me. When my daughter was small, she watched me repair plumbing and install a new toilet while her Daddy vacuumed the carpet. Every parent has different skill sets, and it's just a weird coincidence that this book meshes so well with mine.Whee! When I read this, I wished that my daughter was a kid again, so we could do all these cool projects, from a three string personalized lunchbox guitar to your own dehydrated "Astronaut" ice cream, which is even better than the expensive cubes you get at the Museum Gift Shop.There are 24 way cool projects, and at least a few of them will mesh well with the things that interest you. The directions are so detailed and there are so many photos describing each step that if you have the slightest skill in following directions, you can do these. If you can crochet a sweater or make your own pasta, you have more than enough skill to make these projects. Don't let the electronics stuff scare you.These projects are great for parents of any age, but your kids should be school aged (ideally pre-teen) to get the most out of the finished I mean, you can make your own silkscreened tee shirts with a three year old, but the parent will end up doing all the work, and the kid will be too young to remember.*This book fills that niche for when your kids are too old for coloring books and some such, but too young to start learning to drive. Besides, if you make three or four of these things with your kid and her friends, you will be the coolest parent in the neighborhood, maybe even the coolest planet in town!* = When my daughter was three, we sponge painted tee shirts with fish and glitter and made ourselves matching tee shirts for our visit to the Aquarium.
