Made with Dad by Chris Barnardo Book Review

Made with Dad: From Wizards’ Wands to Japanese Dolls, Craft Projects to Build, Make, and Do with Your Kids 

by Chris Barnardo (Author)

Made With Dad features fifty unique, fabulous projects for fathers to make with their children. Projects include everything from samurai swords to pocket-size dolls, wizard wands to paper zoos.

All projects can made from affordable, easy-to-find items—often regular household ones already owned. Full-color photographs, line drawings, and detailed instructions provide an easy, visually lush, and family—friendly manual. A URL for a site where readers can print the templates in the book—so they don’t damage their copy!—is also included.

This is a book for fun and bonding, one boys, girls, and adults will enjoy. It will allow families to create objects to play with everyday or display in their rooms, and to create memories that will last a lifetime.

My Review:
Made with Dad: From Wizards’ Wands to Japanese Dolls, Craft Projects to Build, Make, and Do with Your Kids is such an awesome book! My 7 year old loves doing arts and crafts so this is right up her alley. I love that this gets Dad involved in the arts and crafts projects! The book is full of arts and crafts that all seem relatively easy to create. The instructions and pictures are detailed and easy to follow even for young kids. A few that my husband and daughters tried were really simple and didn't require much time. I also really like that most of the supplies we already had at home since most of the projects use items commonly found around the house.  My husband really enjoyed creating the projects with the kids and found several more that he wants to do with them. This is a great book for both kids and Dads!

You can find Made with Dad: From Wizards’ Wands to Japanese Dolls, Craft Projects to Build, Make, and Do with Your Kids on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Indie Bound and other bookstores.

Disclosure: I received product(s) for free, in exchange for my honest review. I only recommend products I've used personally, and believe will be good fit for consumers.

  1. What a great idea for a book! I have never seen this topic in a book before - lots of craft and building books but not geared directly for father and child. Sound alike a hit!
