110 Creative Ideas to Keep Kids Busy WITHOUT TV, Technology, Media or…Dare I say it…Video games!

When spring break or summer vacation roll around, many parents may wonder what to do to keep their kids busy. These tips are great for any time of year, however, and a few will even work for winter! The reason I took the time to come up with one hundred ideas was to help parents connect with their children AND keep kids busy without using television and video games as a means of entertainment. I strongly believe that media, video games and television are terrible for kids…especially when over used by parents as a means of keeping their kids occupied. Sure, there are times it is OK or even a great thing… however, in this techno crazy time we live in, it is WAY overdone and kids do not even play or use their imaginations anymore!

Anyway, use what works for you and your family. There are tips for just the kids, you with the kids, older and younger working together and family stuff too! Obviously, some are age specific and others gender specific. However, there are enough ideas listed that any Mom can find several to use and keep her children busy!

    You might find that once you get kids (especially preschoolers on to t.v.) it’s very very difficult to get them off. Make a habit of plugging out the TV and leave your children surrounded by legos, crayons, paints, and paper pads and tell them “that’s all we have for fun” and watch them get creative. It’s not our kids’ fault really. TV is there’s because it’s given to them. Simply, don’t give it to them.

    Also, the Bible says that a parent’s duty is as follows:
    Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.-Ephesians 6:4

    And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. – Deuteronomy 6:6-7

    These are our responsibilities, not a caretaker’s, a school’s or a daycare’s. It’s the parents’. Understanding this will give us some great ideas on teaching our children the Bible throughout the day.
