My name is Christine Merkley and I work for the nonprofit organization Tread Lightly!. We currently have a Tread Lightly! Kids page (http://treadlightly.org/programs/tread-lightly-kids/) on our site but we want to re-skin just this page to be more kid friendly (see websites like pbskids.org).

We’re looking to have an intern create and revamp the following games from the current tlkids.org site:

  • Matching game
  • Mad Libs (currently “Lightfoot’s Story”)
  • Outdoor quiz
  • ATV Trail Maze (printable)
  • Hiking Checklist – an interactive game where kids could get “Lightfoot” the squirrel ready for a safe day recreating outside. Ex. Put a helmet on him for ATVing or equip him with the proper fishing gear for a fishing trip.
  • Coloring Critters – except with our coloring book pictures (http://treadlightly.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Coloring-Book-Updated-March-2013.pdf)

We’d also like to implement a sign-in feature so we can capture email addresses and keep the kids up-to-date on Tread Lightly!. Once all of the games have been completed, the kids should be able to print out a certificate of completion.

Our website is a Wordpress site. Ultimately we would love to see at least a few basic games up on the site by mid-July. 

Interns are welcome to bid for the cost of the project as we are prepared to pay them. We can even split the project up between several interns, each can take and create one or two games.
