Screen Free Week-May 2-8th
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:
- 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.
