They've got this parenting lark down and to prove it they have taken to Instagram to share snapshots of their greatest successes with the hashtag #Dadwin - and the results are pretty hilarious.

Here's a selection of dads who have achieved some incredible wins while at home with their children, as well as a few spectacular mum fails too...
