Today I set out into unchartered territory, embarking on an ambitious experiment to lure children away from screens. Because I was outnumbered (I was only one mom, and there were 4 screens in the room), I decided I needed some heavy artillery — namely, candy. Fortunately the experiment was successful — the screens were abandoned to make homemade bubble gum with a kit I got on Darby Smart, and a great (sticky) time was had by all. I think this just might kick off a “screen rehab” series of offline projects I’m going to start with my kids. Hope it inspires you to wrestle those tablets and gaming devices away for just a minute or two and have some fun IRL.
