I never cease to be amazed and delighted at the variety of work I get offered, and I’ve landed a fantastic gig this week. This one is going to be pure excitement mixed with a dash of chaos. I’ve been invited to facilitate a bring your daughters and sons to work day for a financial services company.
All week the kids have been sending me cool facts about themselves, favourite colour, favourite activities (annoying boys is in the lead at the moment!), and best things about school (Maths and Thinking Actively in a Social Context are both sounding good).
We’re going to play investment games (without going anywhere near the bookies). We’ll be visiting a market, making business cards, telling stories about what the mums and dads do and how it all fits together. There will be art stuff going on and the kids are going to have their own board meeting so they can tell us what good work should look like.
The kids are aged between 8 and 14 and I’d like to have plenty of things for them to do to keep the boredom at bay.
I’d like your help with this please.
What ideas and suggestions can you make that we could throw into the mix? Here’s your chance to pretend to be a kid again – grab that chance and chuck as much fun at me as you like. I need your ideas today please – what are you waiting for?
