On our recent trip to Vancouver I shut off my phone until my kiddos were in bed... the urge to reach out to check Facebook or check my emails was pretty tough to ignore ... but I did it... and it was totally worth it.
24 whole hours with no screens... no lap tops, smart phones, television, iPad... sounds like painful torture doesn't it?
I wanna do it... but I need a plan...

Screen free activities:
- Head to a park in town (with snacks or a picnic lunch)
- Work on a puzzle
- Read stories
- Make up our own stories
- Create art master pieces
I think really the key here is snacks... snacks make people happy :)
I hope to make screen sabbaths a Scott family tradition... but baby steps my friends... baby steps.
Wanna join me? Heck if your local and the weather holds out maybe we could head to a park together... or come on over and our kiddos can get into some fun (and probably messy) art projects.
What ideas do you have for going screen free?
