Self-entertainment for 10 yr old other than screens?
Great question!!!! We've got screen free on many occasions in our family. I will tell you that it will take up to a week for the withdrawal to finish up. My kids will sit and twiddle their thumbs until they finally realize they can indeed entertain themselves without a screens. I also would take a period of time where there is NO screen. Maybe you could do it together and have a two week media fast. After the fast is over, he earns screen time through chores and/or reading a book for a certain number of minutes a day. I require my children to read for an hour a day, not all at time though.
As for ideas, there are legos (I have a huge set that I bought over the years through ebay), wooden blocks, trios, cars, drawing, painting, etc. All of my kids will do these things. Does he have any pets? If not, is that something you could do? Just a thought. One of my kids loves to write stories. My 11 yod loves to set up elaborate war scenes with his army men. He also loves architecture. OH, and I bought my 7 yod a subscription to a club called "Young Wood Workers". All my boys get into building the projects when they come in the mail every month.
As far as activities for both of you, you could go to the swimming pool together. My children and I are trying to visit all the parks in our city that we've never to before the summer is over. Even a walk around the block. But you weren't really asking about both of you. And I do understand the need to entertain himself. It's good for them. :)
You could google "Mom, I'm Bored" lists and see what comes up. I created a jar with colored popsicle sticks. We listed all the activities that we could do when we're bored.
Stand your ground on this. I am amazed at how much the screen steal away the imagination of my children. We don't do TV. We family family movies but the TV is rare on. But we do hit season where I will pop in videos for my preschoolers. It's usually about this time that I see imaginative play disappear. Push through the withdrawal for the week and his imagination will come back to life. :)
