Geek Dad: Awesomely Geeky Projects....

Recently I was fortunate enough to get to review the book "Geek Dad: Awesomely Geeky Projects & Activities for Dads & Kids to Share"

Physically I am not a dad...last time I checked but this book is good for moms too.
What a fun, educational but not in a boring way, book!

The projects range from preschool age to high school age.
A lil something for everyone.  Which works out great for me because Bobster and I have children of every age range covered in this book.  When I was reading it I was focused on activities for the almost 4 year old because he is just constant motion and some days he just needs to slow down.

Cheeks & I really liked the Fireflies for Every Season activity.  All one needs is batteries, 5mm yellow LED's, fabric & electrical tape.  Poof, you are set to enjoy the excitement of fireflies anywhere at any time!

Other activites in this book include:
  • Build an Outdoor Movie Theater
  • Cyborg Jack o' Lanterns
  • Exploding Drink Practical Joke
  • The Science of Composting
  • A Never Ending Demolition Derby
I would definitely check this book out.  Keeps the kids from getting carpal tunnel in their thumbs from all the Xbox & PS2! Ha!

Have you read this book?
Done any activities?

Let me know.

Tell me what book you recommend for stuff to do with kids!

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
