The only danger I can see: If the kids see you taking the lens apart then later, when you are not around, they might decide they want to be "just like daddy" and start taking apart the 70-200!
The "For Canon" is a pretty big hint, narrowing things down significantly. Since it's clearly not the current "EOS" mount, the obvious guess is that it's the previous manual-focus Canon mount, called "FD". Your image is kind of blurry, but a quick Google search or a look at a guide like this one on Keh.com (thanks @Blrfl) will confirm this — it's Canon FD. ...
This lens was made in many, many different versions over the years — Soligor primarily (or exclusively?) licensed other company's products and attached their name. This forum post identifies at least 21 different versions, and those may come in multiple mounts. I'm pretty sure that this one has an old Minolta bayonet mount (Minolta MC/MD). That's ...
What you know is wrong. You cannot adapt lenses to Nikon F easily without modifying a lens mount. The Nikon F mount has one of the largest registration distances of all the old film SLR mounts.
