Is Canva: Poster, banner, card maker & graphic design safe for my kids?

Canva is generally safe for kids.

It’s function as an editing tool is safe and very enjoyable for all ages, and gives kids a space for creative expression. Parents may find a few features concerning, starting with in-app purchases.

The presence of in-app purchases can often lead to accidental or unexpected charges in your account and kids may find the images available for purchase enticing. Parents should discuss in-app purchases with kids, and lay ground rules about asking permission before making any purchase.

The next concern is the connection to social media. Of course, to use this feature, kids must already have a social media account, which comes with its own set of concerns and conversations.

Canva only allows kids to post the work they have made to their social media accounts, which adds only a layer of concern, which is that when people share their creative work with the world, it can be met with insult in some cases, which can have a real impact on self-esteem.

Parents and kids should have a discussion about sharing their imaginative efforts, which should be encouraged, and also about the negative responses that they might meet after doing so.

Canva provides tools for kids to unlock creative potential and an outlet express themselves beyond the pictures they take, and this encourages creative thinking, which is a mindset that is to be cherished for life.
