Disconnect & Reconnect: Screen-Free Week 2021

You may have read that AFL is observing Screen-Free Week, but what does that mean for you? 

Screen-Free Week is an annual event during the first week of May that encourages families to find activities to do - preferably together! - that don't involve screens. This year, it's May 3 through May 9.  You probably have some favorite activities, but if you're looking to mix it up, let's revisit a few Family Fun suggestions from our blog this past year. 

Disconnect & Reconnect: Screen Free Week 2021

We've all spent so many hours in front of screens in the past year - let's cut the cord and break free!

Screen-Free Week is observed during the first week of May; this year it's May 3 through 9. Obviously you can't quit school or work for a week, but outside of necessary working hours, take advantage of the time you don’t HAVE to be on screens to do whatever it may be that brings you joy! Check out some staff favorite screen free activities below.
