Gearing Up for Screen-Free Week with Loads of Screen-Free Activities

What is Screen-Free Week?

Screen-Free Week is an annual, international initiative to encourage families to take a break from digital entertainment. The goal is to promote digital balance – you can still use devices for work or school – but if screens are interfering with regular family time, it may be time to think about how we’re using it.

So during the week of May 4 – 10, 2015, consider swapping your digital entertainment and seek out the joys of life beyond the screen. Instead of watching TV, surfing the web, or playing with apps and video games, they read, play, think, create, get active, and spend more time with family and friends.

Screen-Free Week isn’t about a blanket ban on devices, it’s about moderation.
