Thanks Robin. It's sometimes difficult to guess what the kids might be interested in, especially when you bring the parents into the picture. Thanks for your ideas. I'll take your recommendations to my meeting!
: These are some programs that we are considering for family:
: 1. Beanie Babies collecting--a lot of moms and children, sometimes grandma are involved with this, and
: there are a lot of sites out there.
: 2. In the same vein, Hot Wheels and other collectible cars are a thing that fathers
: and sons seem to be doing, and there is definitely a web presence for that kind of information.
: These are all subject specific type areas. I've also been thinking about a virtual museum tour for families, using
: the online museums such as the Field Museum, etc.
: Hope this helps . . .
: : We're looking to do more "life-events, family, and cultural" programming at Rocky River Public Library. As the technology trainer I need to come up with some programming ideas that will involve more than one family member, preferably grandparents, parents, and children. Some ideas I've come up with:
: : 1. Parent and child explore subject specific web sites together.
: : 2. Children come in with grandparents to help them learn to do something on the computer.
: : 3. Build a family web site????
: : 4. Explore your family history. Genealogy research online.
: : I would appreciate any ideas you might have. Thanks in advance!
