With the pandemic, the idea of limiting screen time went out the window, thanks to home-schooling and Zoom classes, but it is difficult to pull back on that now that schools have (largely) returned to in-person learning. But screen time doesn’t have to be wasted; Osmo’s Creative Starter Kit taps into your child’s artistic side, blending their doodles with a bit of technology to fire up their imaginations. There are three games: Monster, which brings drawings to life; Newton, which pairs physics with your child’s doodles; and Masterpiece, which transforms any image into traceable lines so your child can copy any picture they want to practise their skills. You’ll need an iPad or a Fire tablet, with different kits for both platforms.
