It can sometimes be a struggle limiting screen time for kids.
I don’t know about you, but if I were to give my kids unrestricted access to their tablets, they’d be on it all day.
And I don’t blame them. I was a kid once and I absolutely LOVED playing video games. In fact, I still do! So I totally understand the draw.
But I’d rather they be engaged with something educational versus passively watching a YouTube video.
The best product I’ve found for my kids’ screen time is Osmo. It’s truly the best of both worlds. My kids are happy because they get to have screen time and I’m happy because I know they’re engaged in learning.
If you’ve never heard of Osmo, it’s such an amazing product. It’s a hands-on interactive gaming system for kids! It’s learning through play in the digital age.
It comes with a stand for your child’s ipad or kindle and a mirror attachment that fits over the tablet’s camera. All you have to do next is download the apps and you’re ready to go!
The Little Genius Starter Kit comes with four hands-on games for your little ones to enjoy. My 6 year old loves playing ABC’s and Squiggle Magic. He’s a pre-reader so building letters is a great way for him to practice his early reading skills.
Although Osmo’s Little Genius Kit is geared towards 3 to 5 year olds, it’s simply a suggestion. My 7 year old loves playing Costume Party and Stories.
