For safety reasons, we've reserved the ability to connect accounts for the kids only.
Simply direct your little guy or gal to sign in to diy.org and acces the settings panel by hovering over their avatar:
From the settings panel, there should be a button at the bottom labeled "Connect Adult".
They'll be prompted to connect a parent or educator. Have them select the appropriate field and make sure they enter in the email address you used when creating your adult account. If you haven't created one already, you'll be sent an email asking you to create an account. Just follow those steps and you'll be automatically connected to that kid!
There is no limit to the amount of adult connects that can be linked to a maker account. Teachers, advisors, parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles...anyone & everyone can follow along!
You can also create a new account directly from your dashboard, which will then be automatically connected to your account. When you login you'll see a "+" on the left side of your dashboard:
Click that button and you create a new account that way! Just be sure to check with your new maker about their nickname, as it cannot be changed once selected.
