No one has more ingenuity than a determined dad.

When a Reddit user's wife asked her husband to make a stained glass design on their driveway for their kids to color in, he decided to go above and beyond with this task.

He first laid out the design in tape.

According to him, he thorughly cleaned and swept the area before he began. Then he made sure to press the tape down hard, since his kids were about to color all over it.

Man, I would have loved doing that, too!
