The last thing I want to happen this summer is for my kids to become tech junkies. Left to their own devices, they probably would. Hours would pass while they played Minecraft only to be interrupted by snack runs and bathroom breaks.
Yeah. No way.
I’m not the most ‘non-techy’ person there is so I started looking around and found a ton of ‘tech free summer activities’ to do with the family.
Sharing is caring, so I’ve got the nitty gritty of what I found. It’s a pretty long list but I bet it’ll be the only list you need because there’s more than enough to fill up your summer!
I’m gonna start with the FREE tech free summer activity lists that I found. Full disclaimer: some have the tinest bit of tech in it but I promise, not too much.
Free Tech Free Summer Activities
- I really enjoyed this quick list of summer activities from the FloridaFrugalMom.com. You can even grab a ‘Summer Adventure Checklist’ while you’re there!
- This robust list of 100+ Free Things to Do This Summer from the Attachment Mummy has enough to fill up your entire summer calendar.
- And last but not least, I loved this list from EntirelyAtHome.com that includes 20 experience the family can enjoy together for FREE.
I heard somewhere that during the summer kids forget up to two months of what was taught the previous school year. If that’s true, I’m giving my kids some education stuff to do to avoid as much ‘backslide’ as possible.
Which is why I had to be sure to include some educational tech free summer activities, too.
5 Educational Summer Activities for Kids from the Crossword Hobbyist caught my eye because it mentioned making your own word puzzles. I’ll definitely be doing this for the kids and may even do a word search!
