the project

We know finding balance with littles is tough, in all the ways—from eating those veggies to getting enough sleep to limiting screen time, and beyond. That’s why Offline Kid Time, Inc. has created an easy-peasy, fun way to help kids balance screen time with hands-on, imaginative play.

We create and ship 100% free, original printed activity packets each month that give kids a chance to unplug and get creative. (That’s right! We keep it old school with hard copies delivered via mail.) Our activities are specially created to grow imaginations and inspire curiosity, without screen time or much grown-up supervision. And, completed activity packets earn a prize with the next month’s delivery.

Help support Offline Kid Time, Inc. so that children can unplug and unleash their creativity.

the steps

We offer this free monthly subscription to parents looking for more Offline time for their children, especially in underserved communities. 

Free monthly subscription memberships are limited, but our goal is to make this resource available to all. 

You can help us achieve our goal by making a monthly donation of $20. This will cover one child’s membership and open up a free membership spot for another.

why we're doing it

Did you know, less screen time fosters more imagination and creativity!  Studies have also shown positive health benefits to limiting time in front of devices.
