My daughter would play video games all day long if we allowed her to. We have to set a timer to make sure she doesn’t over-do it with her screen time. At the same time though, she LOVES crafts and building things. I decided this summer to get her a couple of subscriptions for some monthly project boxes. Se far, Tinker Crate her been her favorite! She has made a mechanical bird and a spin-art station and just received a light up planetarium she she has to build and make the electrical connections to.
