The Dad Lab book is an extensive resource of fun activities if your child is interested in crafts and STEM projects. When going through these ideas, get in on the action! Learn along with your child and get just as excited as they do. The major thought here is to not take over, but help facilitate the experiments. Be ready to help when needed, but don't take the charge without being prompted. Challenge your child to push beyond their known limits before you take over. Encourage and build them up, then celebrate and laugh with them when the experiment goes as planned. Also, be frustrated with them but encourage persistence if the experiment fails.
In all, be present and in the moment. Be intentional with your time. And also, have fun!
