Ax announced the other day that he would like a “no screens day.” It went so well that we’ve been going screen-free in the evenings on the regular. Here’s what we do instead:
Take a soft, squishy ball and throw it against the big white wall in the living room. Catch it on the fly or after one bounce. See how many you can get in a row. Take turns on who’s throwing and catching.
Living Room Dance Party
Put on some Ax-faves like Justin Timberlake, Usher, Maroon 5, the Okie Dokie Brothers, and get yer boogie on. Ax likes a lot of compliments on his moves, as do I.
Collaging is the most bang for the buck mess-to-creation craft I’ve identified. Two scissors, one glue stick, some paper or a small box, and old magazines = Magic!
I like cutting up real estate glossies while Ax seems to prefer nature shots like from his Nat Geo kids mags which we review way more cutting up than hoarding in a shelf.
Ax is going through a Charlie Brown phase which suits me fine because I like those books a lot. I also like snuggling which he seems game for as long as I keep reading. So that’s the deal: Reading for snuggling. Sold!
I’m gonna keep going.
What are your screen-free go to’s? I wanna know.
