For the twin's birthday this year we got them Leapsters. We intended to keep them busy on our flight to Disney with these. Since this is our first experience with a gaming system we had no idea what we had gotten ourselves into. If it were up to the boys they would play them all day long. We quickly learned we needed to come up with some way to monitor game time. We already limit what and how much TV the kids can watch. Thanks to my new time waster pinterest I found this great idea: Technology Tickets. This blog contains another mom's creative solution - the kids are given tickets at the beginning of the week for the entire amount of time they can play games, watch TV and play on the computer. I tweaked the idea to fit our family. I made up tickets on the computer. Each child has a different color. That way they can't steal from each other once their tickets are gone. I used card stock that I had lying around.
