April 24-30 is TV-Turnoff week, and I find myself feeling a bit desperate at the thought of no tube. Not because I watch — I hardly ever do — but because TV plays a pivotal role in my 5pm get-dinner-on-the-table routine. My kids watch a TiVo-enhanced hour of something while I'm getting dinner ready, and I'm as addicted to that 60 minutes of relative quiet as they are to their Dragon Tales and Sesame Street. Not a major sin, in the scheme of things, but definitely something to think about.
If you're looking for something to do, FamilyFun has a good selection of arts and crafts, activities, printable coloring pages and puzzles, and kid-friendly recipes.
How are you spending TV-Turnoff week?
