5 Side Projects of Fatherhood

1. Investing

Investing is one of the most important tasks you can take on as a father. You will need money, and you need it fast. Having the right tools is also very important, so you do it right by doing your research or getting a TradingView platform. There are many options available, but the best option is to pick a platform that’s easy and teach yourself from there. I have been using this for years and have gotten good results, you will need to take the time to read through the instructions, but it is well worth it.

2. Cooking

Cooking is one of the easiest ways to stay content, and it doesn’t require much effort or time. The occasions needing the most work and effort are cooking for friends and family. Make sure that your food is safe and healthy. If you want to try something new, then cook with vegetables you can grow in your backyard. Soya milk, tofu, nuts, seeds, and whole grains are a few things that are not only good for you but will also be great on the table. Being able to prepare meals at home is one of the easiest ways to keep fed and happy.

3. Music

One of my favorite hobbies is music. I love the way music makes me feel, and I love to create new music. Making music is very easy, just pick an instrument you like the sound of and start creating. Ideas for your own songs will come to you after a while when it just feels right or you want to experiment. Recording and then playing them back on your phone or other devices works too. From there, share them on social media, YouTube, or anywhere you think it’s cool. Let people hear them and see what kind of reactions come from those who hear your music. Remember to keep track of how you’re doing with your ideas and keep experimenting!

4. Writing and reading

If writing is not your thing, then reading is pretty much a must. Reading is an essential part of life. Books have always held a special place in our hearts; it is something that we all enjoy. As the old saying goes, books are friends forever. Reading is a great way to make new friends and form a bond between you and another person. Everyone loves books, be it fiction or nonfiction books about animals or plants. If you like this sort of thing, be sure that it is accessible to your specific level. Just because you aren’t into novels doesn’t mean that your child can’t pick up on the concepts. Search for good books for kids in your local library or download some e-books and give them to your child.

Do this every week and see how much better you are at reading if you spend a little time reading and writing. You will notice how much more you are able to interact with a book. Read a lot of the same things repeatedly, write a story or a poem and write down a description. That way, later, you can write a review about the book and write a short story about how you felt after reading it.

5. Playing sports

Playing sports is one of the most fun things we can do in life. When I was younger, I didn’t understand the concept of exercise, but now I can tell you it is essential and a necessity. Take your child to a track or fitness center and let them run around. Get them out of their seats and start teaching them some basic rules. Once they are familiar with the basic rules of running around, then you can start introducing some of the more advanced skills; throwing a ball and catching it, throwing yourself over hurdles, throwing or kicking the football, and jumping over cones. These will help your kid develop better skills at a young age, it will be very motivating and fun, and your child will learn self-esteem, confidence and teamwork skills, which will be important later on.

6. Watching television/playing video games

Watching television is one of the most simple but fun things you can do as a family, so why not take a break from physical activities to eat some popcorn and watch TV? Watch a movie or series; this is great for you and your child. Keep the TV on all evening and let them try out different shows. Play interactive games together by getting out your video game consoles, and let your kids try out a game of choice. See what they like or don’t like about it. Some of the games you might like to play are those where you can play together; there are lots of options you can choose from, such as Mario Kart and Pokémon, for example.

7. Fishing

Fishing is an amazing activity that not only helps with the health of your family, but it’s a great source of calm and even dinner! Getting out into nature and doing some fishing is also one of my favorites. One of the things I enjoy the most about this activity is the fact that when you catch fish, you can keep them in the freezer and then cook and feed them later to your children. It is a wonderful way to teach cooking skills and encourage people to become more responsible with their own food.
