Play More, Watch Less — National Screen-Free Week: May 1-7, 2017

UnchainEditor’s note
The back of the PDF is a worksheet where you can write down or draw a picture of each activity you do without a screen during National Screen-Free Week — or any week you set this challenge for your family.

Screen-Free Week is an annual celebration of the magic of being unplugged. During this week, parents, children, teachers and others across the country turn off screen media — including TVs, video games, computers, tablets, e-readers, cellphones and smartphones — and get in touch with being unplugged. Below are some screen-free activity ideas!



Around town (with an adult)

With friends

With family
