As I was preparing this week's post about Webkinz Stuffed and Virtual Animals activities for grandparents and their grandchildren, I realized I had explained how to find each other in Webkinz World once you were both on each other's lists BUT not how to get on each other's list in the first place.
To do that, you click on the CELL PHONE at the bottom of the page.
Click on POWER.
You'll see a list of FRIENDS you already have (or none if this is your first time). Click on ADD.
Type your grandchild's Webkinz name in and click on ADD.
If you accidentally typed a name that is already on your list, you get this message. Just click OK.
If it is, indeed, a new friend – you get this message. Be very careful to type the name correctly. Otherwise you could inadvertently end up with someone else's grandchild. 🙂
Once your grandchild approves you, you will see their name on your list and vice versa. If you and your grandchild are working on this together, you will probably both have to log off and then log back on to finish the process. 🙂
That's it for today. Check back next week to learn how to send a Webkinz Virtual Note and a Webkinz Virtual Gift to your grandchildren and the week after for my two favorite educational games on Webkinz. 🙂 Definitely lots of fun Webkinz stuffed and virtual animals activities for Sandwich Generation grandparents and their grandchildren!
