We're sharing ideas to get you prepared for a week full of activities with your family away from our televisions, laptops, iPhones, iPads, Smartphones, Gameboys, Playstations, you name it we're UNPLUGGING for a week! That means you too Mom and Dad! It's time to read, think, play, create and get physically active with our families!
We've created a few printables to help your child experience the most from this Screen Free Week.
Screen Free Printable Sign
Here's a sign to hang on your television or Computer Screen as a video reminder that it's Screen free Time. This might be helpful during the summer time as a reminder too!
Screen Free Activity Cards
We've created a Scree Free Activity Cards. These will be helpful when they say they don't know what to do. Have them draw a card and have fun! You could even create your own cards together as a family as you prepare. MyCuteGraphics has many adorable free clipart graphic for you to use and be inspired with or simple draw your own or take pictures with your camera.
My I Can.... Activity Book
This is another option to hang on your screens to remind your child of all the things they're missing when they are just sitting in front the screen. Make an "I Can Book" with them and see how many things they can discover they can do away from things that plug in!
Screen Free Week Certificiate of Participation
At the end of the week give your child a Certificate of Participation to show them how proud you are!
