TV Alternatives

Is there too much TV time in your house?

Here are 10 active things your family can do instead:

  1. Play hide-and-seek or follow the leader.
  2. Try a karate class.
  3. Roller-skate at an indoor rink.
  4. Organize a neighborhood baseball game.
  5. Visit a museum you’ve never been to before.
  6. Have a marching band with household “instruments” (pots and pans, wooden spoons).
  7. Take your dog to a dog park or for a walk.
  8. Go fishing at a nearby pond.
  9. Draw a hopscotch game with sidewalk chalk, and have a tournament.
  10. Take a nighttime walk, and look for constellations.

  1. We don’t watch much TV at all. Hailey is allowed to watch a 1/2 hour while she eats her snack before bed time. I think it’s the teacher in me that hates the idea of the TV always being on. Great ideas for much better ways to spend our time!

  2. Those sound fun. Haley’s Hints…do I see another meme coming? ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Great list there! I am 37 years old and I still like drawing on the sidewalk ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Good list! And boardgames! Don’t forget about boardgames (especially for a rainy day). ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Great ideas! Some of these are just good ideas to get off my duff and MOVE my body.

  6. Some really good ideas. Especially kids spend way too much time in front of a TV or playing video games.
