I have a few children and I’ve wondered how to engage them productively in the online world. It occurred to me to create a post on how to make website for kids. I wanted my kids to be active online yet not waste all of the years gaming and wasting time building characters that end up just being ignored after their interest moved to the next game. My idea to get kids engaged in building a website may not be for every kid, but I do think a lot could be learned, and enjoyed. If this idea intrigues you please continue reading as I outline how to do it for free and even maybe make some money down the line. 🙂
Simply put I have found a site that allows you to have 2 free websites. It includes free basic training that shows you how to get started. It also has continued training if you want to take it to the next level. This site has tons of tools and experience to help you start with nothing, and allow you and your kid to build an excellent website. One that your kid could then manage on his or her own. Wealthy Affiliate has both a free option and a premium option. You can remain free as long as you like.
How to do it.
First things first. Follow this link to choose your new website domain name, and create a free profile. That will lead you to the signup screen where you can add a name to your website. and pick a theme, (how it looks). This is all easy, and free so check it out! After you get signed up you will definitely want to jump into the free training. This is so easy your kid could do it. 🙂
This to me is the best part, because it doesn’t how much of a novice you are. The training will lead you right thru it. Here’s The first lesson, as you can see it starts at the very beginning. By the 1oth lesson you will have a published website with whatever content you want on it. you will have spent a good number of quality hours with you kid. You will also begin gather content which can be used to monetize down the road if you want. The possibilities are endless.
