It may seem like winter will never end, but Screen-Free Week is just around the corner—May 5th -11th.

There are so many great ways to celebrate SFW and this year we’re making it easier with our new and improved website. Want to join in?

Find essential handouts like pledge cards, permission slips, activity logs, flyers, and more at screenfree.org!

If you’ve never celebrated before, here’s why we hope you will:

We know that many children are spending way too much time with screens—a staggering 32 hours a week for the average preschooler and even more for older kids. The costs of excessive screen time are enormous—poor school performance, childhood obesity, and problems with attention are just a few.

Screen-Free Week is a fun and innovative way to improve children’s well-being by reducing dependence on screens for entertainment and providing time to get outside, read, daydream, create, explore, and play with family and friends. And, of course, Screen-Free Week isn’t just about snubbing screens for seven days; it’s a springboard for important lifestyle changes that will improve well-being and quality of life all year round.

CCFC is proud to be the official home of Screen-Free Week, but it’s people like you who make it a rousing success each year. We hope you’ll share your unique perspective, spread the word, and organize your own celebration—for the children in your lives, for yourselves, and for a better future.

Thanks for helping us put Screen-Free Week on the map!
