Take Your Child To Work Day Marketing Activities?

Posted by Kate on 50 Points
Does anyone have any bright ideas for "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" activities for the marketing department to host/conduct? If the activity is hands-on for the kids, even better (they tend to tune out during the "lesson" part of the session). We're running out of fresh ideas ... in the past we've completed lessons on logos, advertising, business cards and newsletters. The kids range from 7-12 years old and our segment lasts for approx. 45 minutes. I work for a law firm, but the activity doesn't need to be industry-specific ... fun for the kids is more important! Any assistance is appreciated -- thanks so much.

    How about choosing a local (and relevant) non-profit, and having the kids make ads/posters to support them?

    Thanks for the idea, Jay ... but unfortunately we did something very similar last year. The kids were asked to create a poster or ad for an event or cause at their school or in their community. In some cases it was for a sporting event or arts activity, but in most, it was a fundraiser for a charity or family in need (we heard a few really heart-wrenching stories). Thanks again.

    How about having them make a video? Pick a them, give 'em roles, film, add titles, and show the result to kids (and their parents).

    To expand on Jay's suggestion, how about interviewing each of the kids about what their parent does for a living, and videotaping that? Or, perhaps asking each why someone should hire their parent/the firm? It would give each child a chance to shine on video, and could be very enlightening/entertaining to watch later.
