Dad Hacks – To Make Parenting go Father

We all know dads like to take the short cut when it comes to doing chores around the home. You can bet a dad will find an easier or simpler way to do something if you give him the chance. We’ve found some of the best dad hacks on the net that will have you in stitches of laughter or shaking your head with dismay.

First up we have the ultimate man change table using a tool chest, with each drawer dedicated to storing baby needs, rather than tools. Once baby has grown, dad has a fully functional tool chest waiting to be filled up with tools.

This next dad hack is genius for cleaning the bottom of the baby bottle. Insert the bottle brush into a power drill and let the drill do the brushing for you.

Need to keep your kid’s yoghurt cool in a lunch box during summer? This dad has it down pat, freezing teething rings and using them to insulate the yoghurt tub.

Dads can breastfeed too if you give them the chance. A popper of milk and some duct tap and dad is in business.

This dad doesn’t believe in ‘no screen’ time for kids. He gives his kids spare controllers so his kids think they are playing with him, when they are not.

Sometimes dads find it hard to get their daughter’s hair into a pony tail. This dad found the perfect hair tool – the vacuum cleaner to get that pony tail neat and tight.

This dad puts a spin on the classic hair tie by using a zip tie to hold his daughter’s hair up in a pony tail.

This dad is lazy but smart enough to keep his daughter happy using a string to move the swing.

Which dad hack is your favourite? Is your dad known for creating a hack or two? We’d love to hear about it.
