Cathy from Olympia, Washington, October 20, 2010 (view all comments by Cathy from Olympia, Washington)
25 cool-looking projects for Dad (or Mom!) to do with the kids, ranging from quick and easy lava lamps to a very nice looking go-cart. Even includes more "feminine" projects such as tie dye, angel wings (a wall decoration-- NOT for wearing!!), a doll house, and a "circus tent"/indoor theater. The format appears very well thought out and easy to follow, and is chock-full of attractive color photos. Would make a great birthday, Christmas or Fathers' Day gift.

*Please note-- I am giving 4 stars simply because neither my husband nor I have tried out the projects, so I don't know how accurate and/or helpful the instructions are!
