Kids Activity Pack

Let's face it. With the COVID-19 pandemic across the world, children, guardians, and parents are affected by the nationwide school closures. Many guardians and parents are struggling to work and manage kids at home at the same time.

Keeping children engaged is now essential as part of an Events Best Practice. At Microsoft, our DevRel team has introduced a Kids Activity Pack that will entertain children and provide a much-needed escape into the fun and magical worlds of imagination. All these happening while our developer parents and guardians attend our conference.

The Kids Activity Pack debuts on the 29 Jul 2020 at the inaugural Microsoft Create: Frontend, a half-day virtual session where developers from the community come together to have conversations on pressing topics for frontend developers, such as building inclusive and accessible web applications, static sites, serverless, and much more.

As part of the event themed Static Web Applications, @aaronpowell has also created a digital version of this Kids Activity Pack with static web apps!

Do you have other ways to help parents and guardians keep their children engaged so that they too can be included at your meetup, virtual events and have an easier time? I am curious to know what you have in place. Drop a comment below, and let's share.
