Last year, Wired's Geek Dad blogger Ken Denmead published Geek Dad: Activities For Dads & Kids To Share, and we were happy to learn that Ken is back with The Geek Dad's Guide to Weekend Fun: Cool Hacks, Cutting-Edge Games, and More Awesome Projects for the Whole Family.

Projects range from electronics and building to cooking and crafts. Here are a few we're most interested to check out:

  • NERF Dart Blowgun
  • Backyard Zip Line
  • Measuring the Speed of Light With Chocolate
  • Pun Wars
  • Homemade Root Beer
  • Create Stop Motion Movies
  • High-Tech Treasure Hunt
  • Hack Your Own Soundbox

Each project is rated by cost, difficulty, duration and reusability so you know what you're getting into before you start.
