Helping your kids make it, when you can’t.

It’s no secret in our home, I am not the DIY mom. I’ve learn’t to manipulate technology to help me make things but that’s as far as it goes. In fact, I’m pretty sure I failed grade 5 technology when we had to make a bridge. It’s rough.

This doesn’t mean that my kids need to suffer, they should be making all the things and exploring their creativity as much as possible, from as early as possible.

Profiles on Kids Space

My kids are 4 and 11 years old. Their interests and skill levels are different. I love that they are able to each have their own profile on their Nokia T10 tablet and on Kids Space. This means they are shown content that is relevant to each of them.

I love that they are not restricted even though they share a device. They are able to learn and challenge themselves or do projects together. Saving me from looking like the uncreative mom and giving me a little time to finish a nice warm cup of coffee every now and then.
