dadcando full page reward certificates

If you value the certificate, so will your child. Write carefully and neatly, copy a flourishing script from the web, or line up the dadcando pdf template printable with a word processed document which just has the name and achievement positioned exactly in the right place (hold up to the light to check), and print out the name and achievement over the already printed out certificate. However you do it, make it as neat as possible. Remember the certificate is a special thing with a value to your child, so make sure their name is clearly and neatly written. Once you have awarded the certificate, display it somewhere prominently or keep it in a special folder, scrapbook or even frame it. Later, in years to come, little things like this serve to mark happy or significant times and special achievements, and so are lovely things to keep.
. . .There are four colours of the full page certificate to choose from so you can select the most appropriate colour or use more than one for different children or for the same child for different achievements.
. . . There are many reasons for rewards, but here are a few ideas to get you going.

Dadcando HERO Image Required! Dadcando - Week Experiments_Homepage

Life is an experiment
Do you remember when you were a kid and you mixed things up to see what would happen? When you're a kid, inquiring is what you do. In the words of Uncle Buck’s nephew, "it’s my job". Kids really love to experiment and are always on the look out for new information, it’s how they learn so much about the world around them.

As their dad, you are the perfect person to dust off the kid in you and get down to some serious fun experimentation

Kitchen Chemistry, Crystalography, Electricity, Chromatography and truly mind bending adventures in Topology are just a few of the experiments you’ll find here. Most of them have a special printer downloadable booklet that will allow you to record and keep your results.

Most of the experiments here will be covered by your children's school at one time or another, so why not give them a head start in class and get them excited about learning. But in any case doing kitchen top experiments together with your children, following easy to use plans, is incredibly rewarding for dad and kid alike.

Some of the experiments (like the Mobius Strip Experiment) will only take a few minutes, but they’re be no less amazing and thought provoking. Others will take up the whole afternoon. And you don’t have to be a chemist to do any of these experiments either. All the experiments are fully described and illustrated with easy to follow step by step instructions, and most have a few questions and answers to help you stimulate discussion. Kids love learning if they’re interested in something, so set their imagination on fire with a science experiment; I guarantee that they will remember it until they're doing it with kids of their own.

The world is an interesting place, and you are one of the best people to show your children just how interesting it is
