Today I decided something that seems like it should be obvious. My daughter doesn't need to watch as much TV as she has been. Obvious right? I see her sitting watching cartoons and I wonder if she knows how to use her imagination. I don't want her to miss out on developing the skills that foster creativity. As a family we all watch too much. Problem is, I always just get up in the morning and turn it on for background noise and get on the computer. That isn't good either.
So I was on Pinterest... (no news there!)... and found a pin for screen free week: 100 kids activity ideas. Now some of the ideas seem just a little silly to me and some are not doable for our family... but as there are 100 ideas we can surely find a few on the list that we can manage.
