Minnesota encourages families and children to participate in Screen-Free Week


It's time to get a little more active by turning off the screens and unplug!  The best way to celebrate Screen-Free week is to get outside and get moving with that extra time.  Check out this article from Public News Source for more information.

(05/05/14) ST. PAUL, Minn. - As the time that kids spend with television, video games, apps and computers continues to grow, they're being encouraged to take the next seven days to unplug. Sara Adelmann, screen time project manager, Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, says this is Screen-Free Week, the group's annual initiative encouraging children to turn off screens in favor of activities like reading, hands-on playing or exploring nature.

"We are encouraging families and children across Minnesota to take part in Screen-Free Week so that they can have a better balance between the media and their off-line activities," Adelmann says.

Among the Screen-Free Week events in Minnesota is a "Ghost Hunters' Workshop" this Saturday at the Becker County History Museum in Detroit Lakes. Click here to continue reading.
