Set Time for Screen Time

Set Time for Screen Time

Did you know that the blue light emanating from digital devices, can penetrate young eyes and may cause retinal damage? 

 

 

 

This is because children’s eyes develop gradually, and they lack a certain filter that protects their eyes. Adults have protective pigments in their eyes that help prevent blue light exposure. Talk to your local eye care specialist about filtered lenses.  These filter out blue light and provide protection for children's eyes. It is important to 'set time for screen time' for our young ones.

Some Alternative Ideas That Kids Will Find Fun:

  • Reading a book.
  • Singing and dancing indoors or outdoors.
  • Playing a board game.
  • Colouring-in
  • Making your favourite recipe: Busy Izzy has easy-to-make recipes in the back of every book.
  • Trying arts and crafts.
  • Writing a song.
  • Playing your favourite instrument.
  • Writing a poem.
  • Telling a story.
  • Drawing pictures.
  • Spending time outdoors.
  • Visiting your local park.
  • Playing games with friends.
  • Making family time, fun time.
  • Playing with pets.
  • Helping mum and dad around the house and in the garden.
  • Doing chores...yay!
  • Lots of things to do everyday.
