the project

I love how my kids want to try everything! One day they want to be an artist, the next, a writer, the next a musician.  I was constantly looking for ways to encourage their learning, but once I ran out of things for them to do, their devices always turned on. They would start watching instead of doing.

I found it hard to find one-stop-shop, paper-based activities that focused on their interests.  So, I started making them! 

If my kids finished the activities by the end of the month, they got a prize which made the experience even more fun.  Word got around and in no time, I was creating the packets and giving prizes for the neighborhood. 

I wanted to grow this great community to inspire more children to explore with confidence. That is how Offline Kid Time, Inc. began.
