    It’s back…Screen Free week 2016!! See what happens when the tv’s, ipads, phones, and computers go into storage for a week, and what’s left.  Read more about this in The Case for Being Bored and the Case for Family Game Night

    The Screen Free Week Challenge:screen free week 2016

    • Get your family to go the week without (non-work) screen-time
    • get a FREE magic or Pokemon Pack (Max 2 per family)–Have a family game night and get 2!!

    The Challenge:  Get your family to go one full week screen free!  (no videos, video games or computers except for work/homework, or phones except for, well, phone stuff-talking with each other.

    The Prize:  I will give away 100 free Pokemon or Magic Packs for parent-verified kids who make it through the whole week screen free. (or $5 off any game more then $20 for people who don’t play the collectible card games.)  I will give double packs to any kids of families who have a family game night on one of those nights, particularly if the family are all good sports!.

     I know this is hard, super hard.  With the screens and devices, we’ve all gotten great at avoiding the feeling of being bored.  But bored is very important.  Bored is a gift that creates an itch to find something else to do.
