Looking for Screen-Free Week activities? Below you'll find 50 ideas for how kids can celebrate Screen-Free Week.

My kids know that as soon as it's 4:30 PM, it's their designated screen time until supper hits the table an hour or so later. They can play video games, use the iPad, or watch a movie - anything goes during this time period.

But once the warmer weather hits, we reduce that screen time even further because, frankly, we're too busy being outside enjoying the weather.

So whether you are looking for screen-free activities for a regular ol' day or for Screen-Free Week, this list of 50 ideas for going screen-free is a great starting point for ditching the screen with some good old childhood fun!

What is Screen-Free Week?

As the name implies, it's a week for kids and their families to turn off the devices and unplug from the screens and, instead, opt to engage in some other types of activities and play.

It doesn't have to be complicated. Just simply engage in something that doesn't require a screen.

Screen-Free Week 2019 is taking place from April 29th to May 5th.

An Epic List of 50 Screen-Free Week Activities for Kids!

There are lots of great alternatives to screen time.

And there are lots of amazing free programs that can make it even easier to go screen-free. For example, kids can bowl two games for free every day during the summer with the Kids Bowl Free program, something that we sign up for every summer. While that program is great for summer, it doesn't necessarily help you score free bowling for Screen-Free Week itself.

However, bowling is just one of the ideas on this amazing list of 50 screen-free week activities for kids.
