Fun ideas – PowerPoint for kids
Now you know how mad about presentations we are. Well we were wondering how to keep the kids entertained over the holidays and we hit upon a great idea – teach them PowerPoint.
We are a little skeptical, but both our five year old son and our 8 year old daughter took to it – like a duck to water..
Within a week they have been producing some quite amazing pictures. We have shown some of them here. I think that some of the techniques that they have learnt could teach some of the adults a lesson or two!
And with presentation skills being one of the most important career skills that you can have I think that they are already off to a head start.
The best part of PowerPoint from a children’s point of view is the drawing function located at the bottom left of the screen.
Kids love word art
Word art is another useful function that can add effect to a presentation. If you would like to see how the full presentation click on the Children PowerPoint Examples link.
