Dadly Disasters!

As a result of finally being on the making side of my first ever Men Behaving Dadly Challenge, I found myself smack bang in the middle of a mini Dadly disaster. Apparently dry rice and a 3 year old is a messy, mischievous mix; who would have thought?

I am sure there must have been far more Dadly Disasters over the years. Past or present, we would love to hear your home made, heart felt tales of the things that have gone well and erm, not so well!

Please leave a reply and share your Men Behaving Dadly stories with us.

Quality time together…

Check out the pictures taken from our Men Behaving Dadly scrap book of all the families working together on different projects.
It looks like they had a lot of fun and also gave the children an opportunity to learn new skills, such as design and technology, using tools and being able to work in a real workshop!
