Tink Digital is broadening our offerings to teach youth about what is going on in the world around them, particularly COVID-19, through play. Created by a dad and his public school teacher wife, PEGs are Public health Education Games to explain to students about the virus and how to make good choices in their behavior during this time. The team at Tink Digital, which is made up of therapists, teachers, students, and progressive programmers, has developed 4 PEGs, based on information by the CDC, NIH, and HHS, to educate kids without scaring them about COVID-19. Children have fears about the virus and questions. The PEGs were constructed to enlighten, dispel myths, empower, and open the door for youth to communicate with adults.
