I'm excited to be participating in the Spring 2013 Hopscotch with the other talented bloggers at the iHomeschool Network.
My series is on Screen-Free Family Activities.
April 29-May 5, my family will be participating the Screen-Free Week Challenge. This will be our second year. Last year, we had a great time. I think this year may be a little more challenging as we've aquired more screens. Still, I'm going for it!
Although I encourage everyone to take the Screen-Free Week Challenge, the following posts are not for that purpose. They're simply some good ideas for reducing screen-time year-round, connecting with our families, and living life more fully.
Here is the list of posts I'll be making over the next two weeks.
Day 1: Screen-Free with Preschoolers
Day 2: Replacing Screens with Music
Day 3: Going Screen-Free with Art (blogiversary giveaway #2!)
Day 4: More Screen-Free Fun: 50 Things to Do Outdoors
Day 5: Encouraging Creativity Reduces Screen Time
Day 6: How to Reduce and Regulate Screen Time
Day 7: 45 Handicraft Ideas
Day 8: Cooking with Kids: No Screens Required (blogiversary giveaway #3)
Day 9: Screen-Free Can Be a Lifestyle
Day 10: Let's Celebrate Screen-Free Week 2013
