Craft a Smartphone Contract + Pinwheel

Create a  Screen-Time Contract & Spinning Pinwheel with the Family!

By creating a screen time contract, you're setting clear boundaries for tech use. By crafting it into a spinning pinwheel, you're creating a kinder environment for this conversation to take place.

The "Teachable Moments" talking points allow you to turn a fun craft into a conversation about how technology can work best in our lives. 

If your kid is not into crafting, we still suggest talking through---and writing down---clear boundaries for how your family uses tech. Just follow our ideas section, and create your agreement on a regular sheet of paper. 

Supplies:

  • 8.5 x 11 paper
  • A glass head pin
  • Scissors
  • Pencil with eraser
  • 3-6 pony beads

Note: print on both sides to keep your child's instructions on the front and your teachable moments on the back.
