Screen-free Week: Swap Screen Time for This Classic Family Activity!

In the age of video games, tablets and smartphones, the old-fashioned board game often gets overlooked. Why not plan an electronics-free family game night every week? Games are a great way to bond, practice good sportsmanship and keep kids learning, economically. Choose games tailored to your family's needs:

  • Our little one needed help and practice with motor skills, so we have been playing Jenga.
  • Monopoly is fantastic for teaching your kids about money and practicing counting.

Family game time is family fun and learning time!
