I’ll admit it; I’ve been glued way too many times to my phone and laptop. But is it possible to do something fun away from a screen? M Liz Boyle lists 35—yes, 35—things to do that don’t require a phone or computer. She includes activities like writing a postcard to a grandparent, designing a Coat of Arms for your family, planning your dream vacation, reading to an elderly person, and planning a menu and grocery list. Okay, we grownups do meal-planning all the time, but maybe you can give your kids a go at it.
Here are more of her creative ideas. Maybe I’ll try sketching a book cover for my current book-in-progress. *smirk*
