Fun ideas – PowerPoint for kids
child_at_computer

Now you know how mad about presentations we are. Well we were wondering how to keep the kids entertained over the holidays and we kit 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!

This picture was produced by a 5 year old in PowerPoint

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

that’s cute and a good idea. it’s a really good idea to start a kid off learning something like powerpoint. i do believe that powerpoint is an interesting program that a kid will like and will keep trying to learn. great idea!

Many thanks for your feedback, this section was specifically aimed at children activities with older people being able to use the presentations on the website for homework and other ideas as suggested on each presentation page.

If you are wondering about projects for older kids, my 11 yr old daughter made a family PwrPnt presentation in secret, only to hook her laptop up to the tv (we sat on the couch) and give her presentation. Each family member had their own slide (even the family dog) with a short list of who we are (do, age, personality), and clip art to represent something we like or resemble. It was amazing!!! I never realized kids will sit down with a computer program and create something on their own.
