Screen Free Week

Screen Free Week
Children around the world spend too much time sat in front of a screen instead of enjoying the out doors and stretching there imagination. Around 32 hours on average a week children spend sat in front of technology such as t.v, gaming consoles  mobile phones just to name a few. These children are being influenced by what they see and hear on these devises which as a result changes our children’s behavior, influences their way of thinking and deprives them of hands on creative play.
Screen Free Week is about turning off all technology and re-grabbing our children’s creative leaning, constructive problem solving , creations, exploring their own ideas and experiencing the world around them first hand.
So for this week my family are  joining the screen free week, during this week I will be taking loads of photos so I can update you on how our week went and weather it was a painful experience pulling my children away from technology or weather my children embraced a fun filled week. I do have a little advantage as two of my children are 3 and 4 years old and apart from tv they are not too hooked on technology but my 15 year old may be a different matter.
Screen Free Week Activity Plan
I have come up with a few ideas of different activity’s  for us take part in during screen free week that the whole family can take part in no matter what the age or creativity ability.
I am so looking forward to this week of no technology.
