Push Away The Screen Giveaway

9 Comments Giveaways, Push Away The Screen, Tampa

As a We Can! Community Partner, one of the Fit Kids Playground missions is promote reducing screen time among families. This seems like a simple concept, but as parents, we struggle with knowing how much is too much, when to say when and with technology becoming more rapidly integrated into homework, the lines can easily become blurred. And this week, April 30th, actually kicks off National Screen Free Week! Will your family be participating?

Fit Kids is launching a series of giveaways each month that might help you push away the screen and get you and your kids out of the house! Really simple. Turn off the TV, the computer, the video games first. Then go do something! Anything! Go outside. Play a board game. Talk with your kids. Go to a museum. Turn on some music. Color. If you can help set an example, all the best!

Raising a family can be expensive so we hope our giveaways might be a special treat to help you do something fun with the kiddos for an afternoon.

Our first Push Away The Screen Giveaway is from Disney on Ice! They are coming to the Tampa Bay Times Forum on May 17th -20th.

Why We Play!

No Comments Fit Kids, National

When we launched our first Fit Kids Playground in 2009, we didn’t realize that we were going to be a part of a movement that would eventually develop into a national movement, with the First Lady leading the way, that would spark collaboration and development of so many organizations from all over the country and the world, that all had the same mission: To get kids healthy and fit.
