It’s hard figuring out how to entertain your kids. That’s especially true during the long drudgery of the holiday vacations when there’s no school to keep them distracted throughout the day. Here’s an idea: If your kid is really into drawing or painting, try encouraging them to create art on a computer.


Parents strive to treat their families to amazing experiences. Catapult, in partnership with Intel, is the field guide for the modern mom, offering tech-based at-home activities that will build lasting memories.


To do this, all you need is a high-powered PC with a fast processor and a program like Microsoft Paint 3D. Your kid will develop some useful new tech skills, and you won’t have to spend hours and hours cleaning up paint-splattered walls. To find out how, watch the video above.
