Whether you end up home schooling, remote learning or a hybrid system, it’s so important for our kids to put down their devices, and incorporate play and “brain breaks” into their daily schedule – to ensure they’re moving their bodies, getting fresh air, and using their imaginations.
While screen-time can have a purpose (hello, Zoom calls!), it’s all too easy for kids to rely on their devices for 24/7 entertainment. Even at home, kids need lots of screen-free breaks. That’s why we’ve partnered with Nature’s Bakery to help get your kids excited to put down their devices, and up and moving, by bringing recess activities directly to your front door.
Nature’s Bakery is providing families like yours with incredible Recess in a Box kits that give you everything you need, from supplies to snacks, for screen-free fun.
In addition, Nature’s Bakery has created an incredible resource called “Snack Sized Adventures” that provides you with over 100 screen-free activities you can do with your kids at home – all of them are easy-to-plan and extremely engaging. We’ll be highlighting some of our favorites ideas you can try out the next time you want your child to put down their device for some tech-free fun.
