Activity Alternatives

Encourage play and learning activities: 
  • Games
  • Toys
  • Music
  • Story-telling and acting out stories
  • Books and magazines
  • Hobbies and crafts (as simple as old magazines and scrap paper for cut-and-paste)
  • Shoe boxes and scrap materials to build with
  • Old clothes for make-believe
  • Conversation with friends
  • Library or museum outings
  • Sports
  • Walks
  • Household chores
  • Crafts
  • Doing "nothing"

Remember: children enjoy "hanging out," even when you’re busy. Look for opportunities for them to watch while you work and explain what you’re doing; to help in some way; or to keep you company.

Sit down with your kids and talk about the things they like to do, from the big to the small. Make a list and post it on your refrigerator so it can keep you motivated. For example:

Max and Adam’s Favorite-Things-To-Do List
(these boys are 4 and 2 years-of-age)

Please submit your ideas or personal stories for "TV Free Activities" to director@limit-tv.org
