Build & Talk
Try our Screen Time adventure
Take your child on an adventure in the online world, with our new story-style activity. As you read the story out loud, your child is encouraged to build an imaginary LEGO creature. Meanwhile, you’ll find conversation starters about things like how to balance time online with other activities and the importance of taking regular breaks.
Before you start, why not refresh your knowledge?
Check out our False Information Online activity
This fun, interactive adventure helps you and your child talk about the importance of thinking critically about the information and people you come across online. While your child enjoys building an imaginary LEGO character, handy question prompts help you chat about topics like how to know whether something is fake or fact and how misinformation can spread online.
Discover more about this topic in our Q&A.
