Evolution of the Play Date

It used to be they played with toys, talking and making up stories. Maybe even building things with Legos and having Star Wars adventures.  Sometimes I can get them to go play Nerf guns and swim.  Today, however,  they are “sharing” a game from one DS to another.  They occasionally share tips for winning, but generally, they are quiet.  There is merely the music of the game.  I suspect this may become the norm.
