hi everyone, I am writing a proposal to develop family backpacks for our
museum and I am keen to hear from anyone who has developed them.
Just a few questions.
I am thinking of developing two types of backpacks under 7's and over 7's
with suitable activities.
However I am concerned that families with children with mixed ages might
find this difficult to use. Any suggestions?
Are family backpacks more popular with an older or younger children?
How long do family groups tend to use the backpacks for? Less than 1/2 hour
or between 1/2 - 1 hour? Just to give me an idea of how many activities/
exhibits should be included?
Does anyone charge for use of the backpack? A nominal charge for
maintenance or to fund other family activities? If so how much?
Do backpacks work well or is another style of bag easier for children to
I will be trialing with focus groups etc, but just want some info to get me
Thanks for all your help and advice.
