Intergenerational Summer Rotations with Families

Our kids only have an 8 week summer this year (long, sad story) and 7 of those weeks we've decided to do intergenerational rotation.

Our plan is to have parents come with their kids each week for the first 3 weeks as a Bible "dig" (learning about the Bible), then everyone together the following 4 weeks: a music week, a video week, baptism week, and communion week.

My question is: How would you split everyone up in the first 3 weeks ... we want families to stay together, not be split up if they have kids in 2 different age groups. Do we just let them go to whichever workshop they want (which would be art, storytelling & games) and then the following 2 weeks they'd go to another workshop and it would all even out?

Also ... any tips anyone can give if you've done intergenerational? My thought is that we'd teach at the kids' level and have things that the parents would have to do with their kids, not just hang back and watch.
