You're never to old to make a mess and never to young to put your feet up
To help you make the most of every minute you spend with your kids, dadcando is building up a bank of things that you can do with them when you’ve done with making and cooking. In the Doing Section of dadcando you’ll find games that you can play with your kids, help with planning a really special kids birthday party, complete with original printable birthday party invites, an essential guide to Reward Star Charts (with perfect little download charts, rules and instructions), emergency ruled paper downloads for that homework moment when it just has to be in tomorrow but you don’t have the right paper, and some exciting experiments.
. . .
As with all our other downloads, dadcando Doing downloads are easy to follow and have been creatively designed with you and your kids in mind by someone who knows what it is to find things for their kids to do when they come to stay. At dadcando we are very choosy about which projects we put up on line. We try to make sure that all our projects are original and have something special about them. Our experiments are designed to be interesting to kids and grown ups so that you can have fun doing them together, as well as learning some good solid science all peppered with fascinating facts. Where appropriate, our experiment projects come with downloadable booklets and the instruction sheets, and each comes with a few simple questions and answers about the experiments, so that you can answer your kid’s questions about what you are doing.
. . .
Dadcando is all about creating a happy and rewarding environment for our children, where they feel valued by both parents and can grow up as happy, secure people, so it will be no surprise to find star charts and reward certificates in this section along with some really simple (but great fun to make) rosettes. Reward charts are a tried and tested way of getting things to run smoothly and rewarding good behaviour, but they have to be used properly, so we have provided a set of instructions and reward chart rules to make sure that you get the most out of the system.
Of course, all our projects have been designed with today’s mobile children in mind. Many of the projects have little booklets that can be folded up and taken from home to home, helping in many cases, to ease the transition your children have to make as they go between daddy’s and mummy’s house, or at other times just making it easier for your children to take what they’ve done into school to show off to their friends.
The most important thing is that all the stuff on dadcando has been tested out by kids, so when you start a project or use any of the downloads, you can be sure what you’re doing will work. Never forget that making and doing with your kids is about solving problems together and them having something at the end to keep. The things you do with your children will be very special to them because you are their father.
