How to have Quality Screen Time with Kids

By XGIMI Tech - 2022-10

Introduction 

Everyone knows projectors provide the ultimate home theater experience. But do you know you can use projectors to have quality screen time for your kids? There are lots of ways through which you can use a projector to bring life to your home activities and strengthen your bond with your kids, such as following some videos to dance, watching some educational documentaries, etc. In this article, we discuss five scenarios in which having a smart projector would be the best option for your kids.

How Projectors Help Keep Your Kids Productive

Whether you are on the road with your kids, having fun outdoors, or simply spending quality time together, there are many ways in which a projector can turn any day into an extraordinary memory.

1. Exercise apps

Health experts say a few hours of exercise a week can improve health and general well-being. What better way to get your kids healthy than providing access to exercise apps? These apps introduce fun exercises, including dancing, yoga, aerobics, etc.

A projector is a good choice here as it is easier for your kids to follow the guide videos on a big screen. A small screen can disrupt their flow since they often have to pause and watch closely. On a big screen, everything comes alive in full color, and they can maintain a healthy posture while keeping their eyes on their instructor.

Another upside is that the entire family can exercise together. Since you are using a large screen, everyone can follow the instructors without crowding around a small display.

2. Educational content

When getting presents for kids, you might want to purchase educational content like language learning, brain games, children’s documentaries, etc. These presents will stimulate their mental capacities, make them more curious, and enhance their problem-solving skills. The only issue with digital educational content is their devices we stream it on .

Most digital devices for educational content come with small screens emit light directly into your kid's eyes which can be very bad for sight, causing dry eyes, eye strain, or even myopia. Projectors offer a safer alternative since they do not directly transfer light to your kid's eyes. This display puts a lesser strain on their eyes.

The larger projector image sizes also make it easy for our kids to identify text and colors quickly. And since you are projecting the educational content on a bigger screen, you can have more than one kid available in a single activity. So, a projector will do the trick if you and your friends want to keep the kids busy while you have some adult talk.

Lastly, projectors can make educational games more fun. You don't have to crowd around a smartphone or TV screen. Everyone can sit comfortably, enjoy family games and documentaries, creating incredible moments. All you need to do is cast your screen from your tablet or phone to the projector. Alternatively, you can plug in your PC to the projector via HDMI.

3. Tutorial videos

A TV would be a great idea for tutorials in various skillsets but not everyone has the space to install TVs in their other rooms. And even if you did, the hassle of moving a TV into the kitchen and returning it to its original place might not be worth it.

Since projectors come in compact sizes, you can move them quickly into the room and prop them against a wall.

Overall, instructional videos look much better on a big display. They are also easy to follow since every detail is available in large format and appears on a large scale.

4. Instructional videos

However, projector use is not just limited to learning how you cook. You can learn how to assemble items or practice your instrument-playing skills. For instance, if you are learning to play the piano, you can keep your eyes on the projected screen while your fingers mimic the instructors' movements.

Additionally, projectors can be a great idea if more than one person is learning the skill. This way, each member can enjoy the large displays regardless of where they are.

5. Entertainment

Regarding home entertainment, projectors offer the best display experience. It is perfect for giving the family that cinematic feel we have come to love. Some projectors come with quality and loud sound productions that will fill the entire room and immerse you in action. If you want to take things a step further, you can hook up the projector with a premium bass speaker.

Kids love their cartoons. Watch them giggle as their favorite characters come alive in full color and large-scale display. It would almost feel like they are in the world of their favorite animations. Even adults will be thrilled watching movies on a projected screen.

Home entertainment doesn't have to be restricted to cartoons, though. You can review memories recorded with digital devices, music videos, and all your favorite family movies.
