However, you should first make sure that you have Lightgliders downloaded onto all of your child’s devices.

Once you sign up, you can download the Lightgliders app on all your kids' devices.

4. HAVE your kids log in

Have your child log in on their device using the username and password you set up for them in Step 2. Once your kids have logged in on their device, they will be guided through Lightglider Training – they will create their own character, come up with a Lightglider name, go on their first mission, and learn how to play! Find the red Gliddle in the Courtyard anytime to revisit Lightglider Training, learn more about how to play, and get ideas for what to do next. In addition, join us at the New Player Tour any Tuesday at 4pm EST! Our moderators will be happy to welcome your kids and give them a tour of Glideon!
