I have been meaning to write about this amazing blog called Unplug Your Kids. This family lives a life free of TV, Video Game and loud toys. Each week the blog hosts an unplugged project. I decided to participate in last week's unplugged project. The theme was transportation. In honor of the theme we worked on a puzzle about transportation, took a trip to the canal museum in PA, and played red light/ green light!
Please check out Unplug Your Kids if you are interested in participating in the 3rd Annual Turnoff Week blog challenge. I will be participating in the challenge. I am hoping to turn off my TV (it isn't on much anyway) and computer for the entire week. Yup! Cold Turkey on the computer just might kill me. I could try to cut back but I am afraid I would end up cheating. I am already considering no TV at all for E in the summer but am not 100% sure yet. I currently use 25 minutes of Signing Time to get cooking done that I just can't seem to get done while E is tugging on my pants. If Pete was home a little earlier I would not put it on at all. There is certainly something to be said for cutting back on screen time. My niece was not allowed to watch TV while Eliza was awake and instead taught herself how to knit. Something tells me that would not have happened if she was glued to the TV all week. I personally believe it is all the wonderful things you miss out on while zoning out to mindless shows that makes watching TV so harmful.
What are your plans for TV turnoff week?
