Turning screen time into off-screen learning is easy! Just "translate" the games that your children enjoy into real-life fun (and learning!). Zoe and August are a great example in the video below. (We've also used giant building blocks to play Skyscraper Builder with large groups of kids.) Older children can collaborate with each other to make "IRL" versions of their favorite onscreen games. (Hey! Could this be a birthday party theme?) Younger children may need more help, but it's a great inspiration for family coplay. And don't worry about the end result--as long as the process is engaging and fun, it's a win!
Do your kids get off-screen ideas during screen time? Does it make them create stuff IRL?
