A Crafty Dad Speaks! Win His Book for Your Fave Dad on Father’s Day!

518O7IuSl-LI just had the ABSOLUTE pleasure of interviewing Mike Adamick, crafty dad extraordinaire and super-nice guy. Mike is the author of Dad’s Book of Awesome Craft Projects and the brand-new Dad’s Book of Awesome Science Experiments.

We talked to Mike (whose work you may have seen in PARADE magazine and on the San Francisco Chronicle’s Parenting blog) about writing the book, parenting and more — just check out what he has to say at

Aside from being one heck of a  fun interview subject — Mike has offered to do something wonderful for dad’s and families. He’s giving away an autographed copy of the latest book to a lucky reader!

Here’s all you have to do to qualify for the drawing — write about a craft project that you know dads and kids will have fun doing together, or review a book or product that is essential to a great dad-kid project. Share the link to the lens below by May 25. Then we’ll choose a winner and Mike will send the autographed book your way — and you can give it to your favorite dad!

Also, once you make your lenses, don’t forget to share them with the world — Tweet ‘em (always remember to mention @squidoo and #Squidoo), FB ‘em, Pin ‘em, Google + ‘em. Send them out into the world. They like to meet new people, you know.

    Believe Jesus Christ is your savior for your sins. Jesus Christ is God Almighty in the Flesh. This is the Gospel, believe Jesus Christ sprinkled his shed precious blood and died for you and all of your sins on the cross, he was buried and he rose again from the dead three days later from God’s Power and you will be saved and you will go to Heaven forever. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God to where we all deserve death, destruction and judgement in the Lake of Fire from the wrath of God to where we need a savior to save us for our sins forever. By receiving Jesus Christ’s blood sacrifice as full payment for your sins you will be saved forever. It matters not how much you have sinned in the past, in the present and in the future. Once you are saved you are saved forever no matter what. Good works will not ever save you and no one and nothing else will. That is the Gospel and if you believe in the Gospel you are now a Born Again Christian and you are now saved and you will go to Heaven forever and that is the whole truth. Spread the truth. All glory goes to God forever! Praise God! Amen! (John Ch. 3:16, Romans Ch. 3:25, 4:1-6, 5:9, 1 Corinthians Ch. 15:1-4, Ephesians Ch. 2:8-9) The Authorized King James Version Bible. www

    Would a food creation be a craft?

    • StephanieMangino11

      Hi Sandy! I’m thinking food would be more of a recipe, unless you’re building something with food like a cookie house or something like that or doing an experiment with food. Thanks! :) Steph
