Screen-Free Play Time Poster

Parents everywhere rely on the screen to get ANYTHING done. Kids don’t fight over Paw Patrol, people. They fight over toys and Play-doh and snacks. When it’s snowing or raining, we can run out of things to keep us entertained.  Cue the screen-free play poster!

Last year I made this “screen-free play” list to help me navigate winter in Ohio. I just made it a little prettier and thought I would share!

What’s your go-to indoor activity when cabin fever (or quarantine) has set in?

Some screen-free notes:

The box of rocks is literally that. Pinterest is your friend– grab some diggers and dump trucks and fill a tray with rocks from the Dollar Tree. 

Our favorite train set (still used by my kids at ages 10, 8, and 6) is the wooden Thomas the Train track (similar). 

 My daughter’s tent: Girls’ princess castle

Some of favorite authors for read-aloud time: E.B White, Kate DiCamillo, and Beverly Cleary

  1. We love card games and board games…and bonus, some card games also reiterate math skills! Cut and paste activities (free downloads on teachers pay teachers) are also a favorite here, and again, help towards some school stuff (sequencing, separating etc). Music and dancing to burn off the energy, “playing” the piano or whatever other musical instruments are lying around. We like to get the easel out and let each kid have a side to draw and color on, or play pictionary! Great ideas here….love the idea of the list!!
