All I did was ask the kids what kind of project they would like to do. I thought they might say they wanted to learn pottery or paint a canvas or build a go kart. Nope. They wanted to build an iPhone app.
That’s how it began.
I didn’t even know how to start. Not a clue. So, I did what everyone does. I Googled it.
There was actually a lot of information on how to tackle this little adventure, and I thought, well…why not? I thought it would be a fun thing for them to do. I thought it would be cool to have an app on iTunes. I thought it would be great to learn this process together.
I didn’t think it would change my life.
I was wrong.
That one experience with my kids lead us to build more apps, create websites, and publish ebooks. They have learned how to build their own Minecraft mods and have made animations with Blender. I even started my own business building apps and websites for other people.
Build something with your kids and you’ll learn about each other, about technology, and about business.
One idea is all it takes.
