Screen-Free Family Activities: Things to Do Together at Home, around Town, and in Nature Hardcover

365 activities for play and adventure without screens: having fun with your family and without technology is possible!

Children spend a lot of time with their screens, and while it’s true that there are many alternatives to screen-time, many modern parents don’t know where to look for these opportunities. In the absence of inspiration, this book proposes 365 activities to play without screens for the whole family.

Activities are designed to be enjoyed in different spaces such as at home, in the city or town, and in nature. Completing them as a family will create positive emotional bonds, reduce stress, and teach children empathy, love, and respect.

Montessori-inspired Ideas range from crafts and hobbies to everyday activities (singing in the rain, jumping on the bed, taking bubble baths) to outdoor activities like treasure hunts and gardening. Each project has a photo or illustration; an appropriate age range listed; a season; and a time for how long to play.

Each activity is a different idea with the same objective: to strengthen bonds and help pass the time in a way that helps you grow as a family.
