Alexandria Kid’s Fest was Loads of Fun

I can not begin to tell you all that we did today but I can say we got tons of information in a child friendly way and loads of fun with is also kid approved,  we went through the fitness, food health, and cyber safety first and I was very impressed at how much you could learn in such short segments of teaching.  Like with the cyber security they gave you a zip tie to remind you of keeping your passwords and computer codes tight, tooth brush because you would not share some information with people that was to private and personal, color pen because you don’t use personal photo’s because everyone can use them, toothpaste because you need to be aware that what you write on the web stays there and a book mark to remember to be careful what you look at.

It was so much fun.  We also talked to an FBI agent and got more information about cyber safety and a new app they have out for Parents to help keep the children safe.  Plus Maegan won a  cook book by a famous Chief Stella he wrote for kids.  We met and got a picture with Miss Louisiana Bethany Trahan.  I would definitely say that the Alexandria Kid’s fest was loads of fun and very informative plus we got some recipe tips.

A Trip To The Park For Cyber Security?

March the 18th my daughter and I will attend a function for children at the city park which will focus on cyber security and health issues.  I tell you this because for home educators and just plain parenting checking out you community calendars will give you lots of things to do to help educate and entertain your children.

I appreciate my communities efforts in public activities it seems to be so full of things to do just this month alone but I am excited about this cyber security at the park because from my lips my children think mom is just crazy and it really helps to have them hear from other sources real threats are out there.  It also helps children to learn in fun ways to put a positive twist on a bad and terrible thing so that fighting internet threats is reachable and stronger.

So if you want to find affordable resources for children’s education and  social outreach check you community calendar.  There are even ways you can join and do things for your community.  So who would have thought a trip to the park for cyber security?
