Screen-Free Week Update and Stories
As you saw from the photos we posted last week, Green Meadow hosted a fabulous event on Saturday, April 28, to kick off Screen-Free Week, a national event organized by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC). This year, Screen-Free Week ran from April 30-May 6, ending yesterday. More details about the annual initiative are available at the CCFC website.
About 50 people joined us at the kickoff event on the 28th to learn how to go screen-free for a week: enjoying crafts and learning how to create music by listening to nature, making jump-ropes, participating in a cooking demonstration by Chef Anthony of Threefold Cafe, and taking a nature walk with the inimitable Ed Bieber from The Nature Place Day Camp.
As Waldorf families who enjoy the benefits of reduced screen time all year long, we would love to hear from you about whether or not you did anything special in terms of media usage during Screen-Free Week! Share your successes and challenges in the comments section.
