This week is National Screen Free Week which we think is a fabulous idea. For many of us, media time has become part of our daily family living whether it’s computers, smartphones, DVDs, the Cloud or whatever is at our virtual fingertips. Let’s face it, sometimes screen time can calm down a restless toddler at a doctor’s office, can distract kids on long trips or can even be a learning tool. However, there is something to say for turning off the screen – no matter what size – and playing outside, using imagination for play, reading a book together even as a family or having family game time.
Here at Kolcraft we are up to the challenge to turn off the screen and reconnect as family beyond the screen. Check out our blog this week for fun crafts and activities for your children and family.
