Get Outside! 25 Ways to Spend Screen Free Time with Kids

My family hasn’t owned a TV in over a decade. It’s pushed me and my children to become more creative and exploratory with the time we spend together. Some screen time is okay, we do watch the occasional movie together, and use computers and tablets for educational purposes plus a game here or there. But with Earth Day on the horizon, I wanted to share some fun ways to spend time together as a family screen free and outside! We’ve already done some on the list, and some I’d like to try this spring.

    I’m going to try most of these ideas this summer…save for fishing…yuk! I am guilty of too much screen time which isn’t going to benefit my kids more than my undivided attention, even if it is PBS. I tried #18 and it wasn’t a duck in sight….at three different lakes :\
