Today kicked off the national No Screen Week campaign.
Remember TV Turnoff Week? Yeah. Same thing — only now they’re coming for your video games, too.
I do think it’s a good idea to encourage kids to participate in non-digital activities as much as possible.
That’s why I kick my girls outside every day, as soon as they finish with homework and chores. For the most part, television and video games are reserved for cold or rainy days. Oh, and car rides.
We do enjoy playing video games together. In fact, we spent two full days this weekend doing nothing else. But, I like the push to get off the couch and so something more active. If you’re looking to cut screen time this or just want some new ideas for low cost family fun, check out these unplugged activities:
How are you unplugging this week?
