Its back to school time! Both Pam and my kids are in school as of today! We wanted to share a great way to help control the technology or TV watching now that school has started! Hours are precious when you already have to share your kids with school, and you don’t want to waste to many of the hours you do have with technology!
They are easy to use. In order to play on the iPad or computer they have to turn their tokens in for time. It’s an easy way to keep track of the time they are playing on devices, without too much effort. It also gives them control over how much they use at one time. You can decide how much is the right amount for your child.
You can also decide what system works best for your family – whether you hand them out daily or weekly! I know Pam is going to pass them out daily, because her children are younger (6 and under) and it’s harder for them to understand that if they use them they’ll be out for the week.
I would suggest printing on cardstock and if you want you could laminate them too!
I left a background on the image so you can cut them with straight paper cutter and they are still cute. Or if you want you can cut them into circles.
