Screen-Free week occurs internationally on the 1st week of May every year since 1995 and parent's all around the world are taking part!

This year it is April 30 to May 6 2018.

But it's not an anti-technology movement as some may think.

It's actually a week that focuses on family time and free (unstructured) play for kids!

Now that sounds like fun doesn't it? Well it definitely is, and super rewarding too.

Which is why we are so excited about it and want you to share in the fun.
