We've been long time fans of Wired's Geek Dad writer Ken Denmead, so we were super excited to hear the news of his book release by the same title. Geek Dad is 240 pages packed with totally geeky adventures for Dads to take on with their kids. It's just in time for Father's Day and we're pretty sure it's a must have for every family (father or no) as the activities will keep families interacting and exploring together for years to come.
You can find Ken's everyday writings over at Wired's Geek Dad blog and now you can also find him in your local bookstore, or the world's bookstore: Amazon. A copy will run you $17 (currently on sale for $11.49) and here's a few things you can except to find:
• Fly a nighttime kite ablaze with lights or launch a video camera with balloons
• Construct the "Best Slip n' Slide Ever," a guaranteed thrill ride
• Build a working lamp with LEGO bricks and CDs
• Create a customized comic strip or your own board game
• Transform any room into a spaceship
• Make geeky crafts like cyborg jack-o'-lanterns or Ethernet cuff links
When we were younger, some of our favorite books (and still to this day) were ones full of activities that we did with our parents or even on our own on a rainy day. We think this would be a great addition to any adult or children's library.
