KIDSJAM

Collaborate with a child and make a game together! Depending on your ages, you might be able to photoshop some hand-drawn kid art into fun sprites, or just talk about cool ideas for a game together.

However you end up collaborating, be prepared to do most of the work and never ask a kid to crunch. Work together as long as it feels fun, then use your own grown-up gamedev skills to make things awesome. =)

Here's an article I wrote on some recent experiments making a game with a 4 year old:

Use this game jam as a way to spend quality creative time together with a young person, and to show them how cool software development can be. See what wonderful things you can make together!
