Being screen free is hard! Here are a few tips to successfully complete the week:

  • Plan it out! Use the calendar on the screen free week document (page 2) to map out your week ahead of time. Have everyone in your family have a say in the activities for the week. Get creative!

  • Prepare the activities ahead of time. Access activities now (games, coloring sheets and more)!

  • Get outside! Join us on Tuesday, May 1st (rain date on May 2nd) for play time at the Forest Glen playground between 6-7:30pm. Children must be supervised by an adult to attend.

  • Come up with a theme for each day! (Ideas are listed on page 2)

  • Parents commit to it too! Outside of necessary screens for work and home, turn them off too!

  • Actually unplug the TVs for the week, put the remotes, tablets, and phones away. Out of sight, out of mind!

  • Schedule activities and play dates

  • Encourage each other!

At the end of screen free week, fill out the ticket on the form and turn in to your teacher! Each participant will receive a Culvers ice cream reward, and be entered for the grand prize! Winners announced Friday, May 11th.
