Nature for Kids reminded us about Screen Free Week April 30th – May 6th!
Screen Free can mean family fun!
Shawna at Nature for Kids shares:
How many screens are in your home? We have 6 amongst TVs, computers and handheld devices. We were pretty low tech just three years ago but now every member of our family could potentially have their own movie, game or whatever playing at the same time. Amazing… yet disgusting.
Next week April 30th – May 6th is Screen-Free Week. Our family is going to take part. I don’t think it’s going to be easy. It’s never easy changing our habits.

We’re not doing this because we think computers and television are bad. We’re doing this to remind ourselves that it can be done and to basically experiment and see what happens. I’m going to keep a notebook handy throughout the screen-free week and write down thoughts that pop into my head and have the kids do the same. We’ll share them with you after the event.
Tales Of A Mountain Mama is hosting some great interactions online throughout this week called Gearing Up Families To Go Screen-Free.
There will be lots of outdoor gear giveaways and lots of information and advice. So go check her out along with these other great outdoor bloggers:

Is there anything your family can do to be screen free for a week? Or maybe we can start out slow and make it family game night, and have it screen free in baby steps! May we suggest a visit to your favorite Virginia State Park? You have 35 to choose from!
