The Best Games for Screen Time Alternatives

Now that the kids are properly back into the swing of going to school, doing homework and having just a general school routine to maintain, they are definitely spending much less time on screens. As the evenings get that bit colder and darker, and of course with midterm and Christmas fast approaching, you might be wondering about what you can do to offer them screen time alternatives and also having fun. Here at The Learning Lab, we have a fabulous range of games that are equally as fun as they are educational; the perfect combination for luring kids away from tablets, tellys and technology in general. These are some of the top games that we recommend as screen time alternatives;
