Screen-Free Week (formerly TV-Turnoff) is an annual celebration where children, families, schools, and communities turn off screens and turn on life. Instead of relying on screens for entertainment, participants read, daydream, explore, enjoy nature, and enjoy spending time with family and friends. Screen-Free Week isn't just about snubbing screens for seven days; it's a springboard for important lifestyle changes that will improve well-being and quality of life all year round.
Here are some of our favorite suggestions for activities for both home and outside to do on Cape Cod in celebration of Screen-Free Week:
~ Visit your local library. If you don't have a library card for yourself or your child, get one :)
