ACTIVITIES
SKATEBOARDINGDo you like skateboarding, bodyboarding, bicycling, dancing, bushwalking or any other active stuff? You could give other kids tips on the best equipment, the best places to go, and show your photos and videos.
CREATIVE ARTS

drawingAre you into drawing, painting, writing, scrapbooking, photography, pottery, making animation, or drawing cartoons? Share them with other kids!

YOUR SPORTS TEAM

soccer footballYou could make a website about the team you play for – with photos of games and trips away. You can make the site password-protected so that only members of your team and their families can enter. Be sure to ask your coach if it’s okay to make a team site before you get started.

PETS

WHERE YOU LIVE

houseThere are lots of cool things about every single place in the world – even if you think where you live is pretty boring. You could write about Add Mediawhat’s amazing, funny or whacky about the place you live in – and include lots of location photos!

Be sure not to include personal information about yourself.

BOOK CRAZY?

girl readingDo you have favorite books? You could do book reviews and maybe even interviews with authors- and even invite other kids to review books too!

LOVE ANIMALS?

Collect photos, drawings and interesting facts about your favourite animals, and put them all on a website.

 

 

What not to put on my website?
If you want to make a website for kids, make sure it’s easy to read and understand. Don’t pack everything onto one page! Break the pages up and try to stick to one topic per page.
Don’t overload your website with animation or flashing objects – and if you do add sound – make sure you add a ‘turn me off’ button.
It can become confusing or annoying to have too much happening on the one page – and don’t expect everyone to like your taste in music!
Also – if you up with load images, video and music with high kilobytes, your site can take forever to download for someone on a dialup or slower broadband connection.

 

Skateboard Monster

 

(Right-click on the animation of the skateboarding monster above. Scroll down to Properties, then look at the Size – this tells you how many kilobytes the image has. This size of this image is 4789 bytes. Because there are 1000 bytes in every kilobyte, 4789 bytes is almost 5 kilobytes.)  5 Kilobytes (KB) is pretty low and this image will download very quickly for a person visiting your website.
