Publish a Family Newspaper or Magazine

Encourage your child to publish a weekly newspaper. Suggest a day of the week it gets published (copied, printed and handed out). Ask what they will need to do or think about during the week so they can be ready. There are many lessons to be learned.

Depending on the age of your child, consider some of these options:

  • interviews, quotes
  • proofreading
  • guest contributors
  • letters to the editor

Copy and send electronically or print and hand out. Holidays can be especially fun. Relatives will love it. Include interviews with grandparents – cousins, etc.
