Studies show that time spent on entertainment media by today’s children averages more than 7 hours a day.* (*Kaiser Family Foundation Generation M2: Media in the Lives of 8-to 18-Year-Olds.) That’s pretty close to every minute a child isn’t in school or sleeping! Are your kids starting to look like glassy eyed zombies? Are they constantly begging to watch TV or play with your phone? If this sounds familiar, your kids are in need of a screen detox. Turn off screens and turn on the creativity this spring by giving your kids the tools they need to invent their own summer fun!
Check out my top 5 ways to get your kids unplugged this spring!
#1: Epic Water Balloon Fight with ZORBZ self-sealing water balloons
Have a daylong water balloon extravaganza with ZORBZ water balloons! ZORBZ are the world’s only self-sealing water balloons, which means you can fill them twice as fast as before.
With ZORBZ self-sealing water balloons unique Snap and SealTMtechnology, having a water balloon fight at a birthday party, sleepover, family reunion or trip to the park is now fast and easy. Get your family outside today.
#2: Picnic at the Park
#3: Visit a Farmer’s Market and Get Inventive in the Kitchen
Instead of just visiting the grocery store, hit the local farmer’s market for the day to browse for seasonal ingredients! Once your purchases are complete, have the kids help brainstorm on how to prepare your goods!
#4: Get Creative with Sidewalk Chalk
Bringing life to an old favorite is right up my alley! Everyone enjoys hopping thorough a chalk hopscotch board or playing life-size tic-tac-toe, but if you’re looking to get creative, give liquid sidewalk chalk a try or grab some stencils and start your sidewalk masterpiece!
#5: Backyard Campout
Create a campground in your backyard and enjoy the nature right outside your home! Make it feel authentic with a nature scavenger hunt, and the inventor in me loves this DIY solar powered smores oven made from a pizza box!
When the sun sets, be sure to grab a flashlight for ghost stories. And get involved with the Great American Backyard Campout and consider hosting your own!
