30+ Screen-Free Activities - keeping kids, tweens and teens engaged this summer

This post could not have come at a better time! All of my kiddos finished up remote learning this week and I realized that having assigned school during the day had helped to keep them engaged for most of the day. I also don't see any summer sports resuming anytime soon, so I have been on the lookout for fun activities they can enjoy this summer.


Today I'm sharing my favorite activities to enjoy with your kids AND a FREE Summer Screen Time Contract!
