10 Awesome Things Done By Really Cool Dads

Funny, Lists, Parenting

Parenthood is not for everyone. It can be quite challenging for the most part and unless you are prepared for it on many levels, it can overwhelm you as well. Being a great parent requires a lot of various qualities including patience and discipline while also possessing the abilities to impart the right values. There is one quality that trumps nearly every other in the eyes of a child, and that is whether you are a fun person or not. If you are the fun dad or fun mom, chances are your kids will gravitate to you like a moth to a flame. Here is a list of 10 dads who have done some awesome things for their children:

Portable Lego Station

Tez Gilmer is clearly aware of the current trends in popular culture which is why he built his child a portable Lego building station. The cabinet is made out of plywood and stylized using 3D printed lettering. He even made a matching stool to go with the set.

Backyard Rollercoaster

Lyle Pemble is one of those lucky few children who asked his dad the question – “Why don’t we have a roller coaster in our backyard?”, and actually got one for asking. His dad spent 3,500 dollars and 300 hours on the project, but it looks like it was worth the effort.

Tandem Snowboarding

Steve Klassen is an snowboarder from Mammoth, California, who decided to take his daughter for a tandem snowboarding ride on her third birthday. Most children just get a boring cake and clown for their third birthdays.

Homemade Hovercraft

Some dad’s can be quite ingenious in creating some amazing things for their children. This dad actually managed to build a hovercraft from scratch for his son and even put up the blueprints of the machine online. You know this kid is going to have all the girls swooning over him when he pulls up on a hovercraft.

Dressing As A Minion

You probably think you are a cool parent because you tolerated watching an average animated movie for the sake of your child. A real cool parent actually dresses up like a minion when taking his kid to watch the ‘Minions’ movie.

50 Meter Crazy Straw

This dad decided to do something special for his daughter’s fifth birthday, so he actually built a 50 meter long crazy straw just for the occasion. Not only was the crazy straw extremely long, it also spelled out ‘Happy Birthday’ in the process.

Homemade Luge Track

Winter can be a really fun time as a child, especially because you can indulge in so many activities which you can never do during the rest of the year. Jay Venini, a dad from Long Island decided to make a large, high-speed ramp for his children so that they can go sledding in their own home. Talk about an early Christmas gift!

Customized Eye Patches

Layla Grubb is a one year old baby who is unfortunately dealing with cataract in one eye. Her dad decided to make things a bit more fun for his baby by creating some cool and fresh eye patches for her everyday.

Longest See-Saw In The World

Liu Haibin is being hailed as one of the coolest dads of all time, after he built what is being called ‘the world’s longest see-saw’. Liu actually built two separate see-saw’s, one placed in Tengzhou City, where his wife and child live, and the other in Xiamen City, his place of work. The see-saw’s work through motion sensors that relay signals using wireless internet, so every time he pushes downward on the see-saw, his child is elevated on the other end of the swing. This is truly a genius and personal way of staying in touch with your child when you are away at work.

Skateboard Sidecar

Jett, a one year old from America, is learning to skateboard at a very young age thanks to his dad. His father, Jared, actually built a sidecar attached to his skateboard so that Jett could come along whenever he wants to.
