35 Screen-Free Ideas

So what did we do during Screen Free week?! I'm so glad you asked! Here's a list (and a few photos) of all the fun and fabulous things we did without the computer or TV. I even have a few ideas for mamas too!

25 Screen-Free Ideas for Kiddos
  • Visit a free music class (*we go to one at a local church-check websites since registration may be required)

  • Go swimming at an indoor pool (we went to the YMCA-it was a little crazy with both kiddos, but so fun!)
  • Meet friends at the zoo! (don't forget to pack a lunch!)
