This Father's Day favorite is packed with fun ways for young boys and their dads to spend time together. From concocting secret codes and crafting musical instruments to camping out in the backyard and making personal pizzas, Come on, Dad! features creative games and projects that will fill an afternoon with fun, and create lasting memories for young boys and their fathers.
Instructions are easy to understand, and any materials needed are common household items. The activities vary in complexity: some are physical, some are mental, some are for indoors, some are for outdoors and all are designed to entertain and stimulate. The authors' suggestions also provide great ideas for birthday party games and homemade gifts.
Sample activities: Personal Pizzas, Paper Air Force, Time Capsule, Take It Apart, Family Story Collection, Old Man Apples, Math Olympics, Beach Memories, Obstacle Race, Recycled City, Personal Place Mats, Shopping Alphabet, Backyard Campout, A Shave a Day, Twirl Pictures, Leafy Fun
New Edition features a new cover, new interior photographs, and a new introduction from the author.
