May Events

There are a host of great bookish activities at the beginning of May, but I've committed to

Join Screen Free Week May 1-6, 2017
As part of my pledge to be screen-free, there will be no Marvelous Middle Grade Monday, Wednesday Quote, or Perfect Picture Book Friday postings this week. There are a host of bookish online and community activities you should know about if you aren't eliminating the tech.

Children's Book Week
Support Every Child A Reader

7 mauscripts in 7 days
Paula Yoo's NaPiBoWriWee
Star Wars Day

If you are interested in celebrating screen-free, I've rounded up some suggestions.
  • Green Child has a checklist of 50 non-tech activities for you and your family.
  • This is the perfect week to catch up on your reading, dabble in some of those crafts or recipes on Pinterest, or create some lasting family memories.
  • If you haven't prepped ahead of time, take a trip to the book store: there's nothing better for getting your kids on board than letting them pick out a new book. If it's DIY, then follow up with a trip to the craft or hardware store.
  • Stuck inside? Visit your local game café to get addicted to the latest tabletop offerings.

My recommendations? Build a tree fort, bake cookies, play Zooloretto, or dive into a new book series like The Uncommoners, by Jennifer Bell.

And don't forget to stock up on Star Wars comics and games for May the 4th!

What are you waiting for? Get off the internet and get screen-free!
See you on May 8th.
