Waste of Time: DIY Cardboard Coin Sorter

Posted by on March 31st, 2017, under VIDEOTAPE

Under the heading of “things I want to do to keep my kids entertained on their vacations,” comes this very inventive cardboard contraption. Apparently, all you need is a cutting knife and glue. For real, MacGyver? That’s it? Well, okay. Count me in then. Right after I build a bed, a kitchen and a garage […]

Minecrack

Posted by on March 16th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK

I should have known what was going to happen. I’ve been addicted to… um, IN LOVE WITH Minecraft myself for years, so it shouldn’t have been a shocker for me when I introduced it to my then 5-year-old that he’d go bonkers for it, too. I’m a gamer. My wife is not.  So, when we […]

May the Make-Believe Be With You, Always

Posted by on January 3rd, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

What do a broomstick, a flashlight and a cardboard wrapping paper tube have in common? Some of you will guess immediately: a lightsaber. In the case of the cardboard tube, it’s a very short-lived lightsaber, but in the right hands, it’s a magnificent Jedi weapon while it lasts. Whether it’s vwoomping and shzzzorping like a […]

Playtime Level: Dad

Posted by on December 20th, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

Dads can be pretty silly when it’s playtime. Sometimes we can get SO into it, we take it to the next level, then chug some coffee or an energy drink and keep on plowing passed as many levels as we possibly can. With holiday gift giving just days away, I’m sure there will be plenty […]

When Dads Toy Battle (Crazy Special Effects VIDEO)

Posted by on October 11th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

Kids can get pretty carried away when they’re playing, augmenting reality with their powerful imaginations. They can reach cruising altitudes of thousands of feet by sticking out their arms when speed-toddling. They’re the defender of the realm when they pick up a stick. Anything is possible. Adults have a harder time stepping into a world […]

Posted by on September 11th, 2015, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

There are three types of people in this world: 1) people who’ve played Pokémon, 2) people who haven’t, and 3) people who have kids that play, or are addicted to the video games, cartoons, movies and merchandise.

“Zebras” : Convos With My 4-Year-Old

Posted by on December 17th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Playing with a little kid can turn into a wild goose chase, or zebra chase as the case may be. When searching, parent’s have pretty poor vision when it comes to being able to see where the fictional characters of a toddler mind may be, so you’re completely reliant on them as your guide in […]

Daddy Vader Says… Rank Side of the Force

Posted by on July 25th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Sometimes your baby or child does things that impress you beyond the normal “wow, he squeezed my finger” or “holy crap, she ate the whole thing!” Stuff that’s extraordinary. These achievements can even get you thinking they’re prodigies at something, or what they’ve done is somehow foreshadowing of some specific future for them, some destiny. […]

Play Games… WITH PIZZA!

Posted by on July 18th, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

  The DiGeniuses at DiGiorno® helped us bring you this post, but the ideas are purely the symptoms of my own hunger and insanity and are intended for entertainment purposes only. Please operate pizza responsibly!   It’s generally agreed that kids shouldn’t play with their food. This probably comes from the fact that kids’ hands […]

Daddy Vader Says… No Escape

Posted by on March 7th, 2014, under SNAPSHOTS

Hhhhhhhooo-pahhhh…Hhhhhhhooo-pahhhh…Hhhhhhhooo-pahhhh… Yeah, the breathing is really ominous, sure. But it’s the things Daddy Vader says in between all the robotic huffing and puffing that gets an Imperial officer or a child shaking in their boots. Especially if they’ve just let a rebel ship get away, or because they need to “turn a frown upside down” […]
