Homemade Hovercraft Is The Childhood Fun You Never Had

OK, dads... the bar for awesome has just been raised. A father who goes by the name of "Papa" on YouTube has made a homemade hovercraft for his kids.

And it looks every bit as fun as it sounds.

Papa wrote in the description that he used a polystyrene insulation board, and also posted a clip showing his first effort at a homemade hovercraft.

He appears to be using a rope to steer the thing. And while he doesn't mention what the motor, ViralViralVideos says he used one taken from a hand vacuum.

Papa is the MacGyver of dads.
