There are two types of people in this world. The ones who are crafty … and the ones who have friends who are crafty. I’m the latter.
I am the reason the word Pinterest Fail exists. But my friend Mike Adamick (you might know him as the dad behind Cry It Out — the blog, not the parenting method) more or less looks at a needle and thread and unicorns and kittens pop out. His daughter is so lucky.
And you and I? Well, we’re close. Mike isn’t going to fly in with a superhero cape he just Macguyvered up flapping in the breeze behind him to save you from that unfortunate glue gun accident. But he does have a book out: Dad’s Book of Awesome Projects.
I’ve read it, and I can assure you, this is not hyperbole on behalf of the book publishers who really just want to move some product. It is indeed awesome in the way that only books that provide you with the means to make your kid a fruit crate scooter can be. This is not another book filled with baking soda volcanoes and pipe cleaner flowers. Mike has come up with projects you can do with your kids, and they’ll actually want to play with after.
Oh, and the awesomeness isn’t just in the creativity of the projects, but in the detailed instructions that you’d have to be an idiot (or you know, me) to screw up.
And because I am ALSO awesome, I’ve got a copy to give away!
