Non-Screen Activities

How about trying some of these great non-screen activities recommended by @HeyPobble? 

Maybe once you’ve tried all of these, you could think up another non-screen activity for another family to try?


PECT has created a lot of non-screen activities for children to complete to better understand the world around them, particularly promoting looking after our local environment. They say:

The  Nature’s School resource is all about bringing families together to enjoy, appreciate and protect their time together. By doing so it can have a positive effect on physical and mental health and ultimately our natural environment as well.

Our environment is sometimes an unexplored natural resource, often overlooked for its wealth of possibilities, and not always appreciated or looked after as it should be! Take this time to turn that around and discover natural wonders, learn from Nature’s School and in return protect it for future generations.
