Screen Free Week is Coming!!

Yes, friends, it is time to start preparing for the upcoming Screen Free Week 2017! It's as simple as it sounds. No screens, except for the necessary like homework, email, and GPS.
We are opting for "just" a week right now, as opposed to our month like in years past. But I think we will have several Screen Free Weeks this year.
Don't know where to start? Here's a short list to get you started:
  • Take a hike/skate/bike ride
  • Go to the library
  • Enjoy cooking and eating a meal together, uninterrupted
  • Take a nap
  • Read aloud to your children 
  • Soak in the tub while music plays quietly
  • Have coffee/tea with friends (and actually be fully present with them)
  • Bake a cake
  • Do a science experiment with the kiddos
  • Swing at the park
  • Go to the zoo
  • Go Bowling
  • Make a puzzle
  • Blow bubbles
  • Rock a baby to sleep
  • Board/card/dice games
  • Paint/sculpt/sketch
  • sew/knit/crochet/tat 
Come on guys, who is with me? Let's do this!
