I was thrilled with how popular the recent 45 activities printable from this post, More Things to Do Instead of Turning On the TV, was. And then Edd Turner, a British trainee kindergarten teacher living in Germany, contacted me with the offer to translate the printable into German, and to use his networks to find others who could help to translate it into a host of other languages!
To date, the printable has been translated into six languages and they can all be downloaded here. Just click on the text link of image below to be taken to the downloadable file. A big thank you to Edd and the other translators.

I read an interesting fact* about TV viewing this week, that more brain cells are active when sleeping than when watching TV! Coincidentally, this week is Screen Free Week in the US. Of course, any hour, day or week can be declared screen free in your own home and I hope the activity ideas printable helps you to take time to switch off and play whenever you feel that a little screen free time could be beneficial to your own family.
To print: Created at A4 page size you might need to select “Fit to printable area” (or similar) depending upon your printer type and paper size.
*I say ‘fact’ but have not personally researched to verify this information and I cannot testify to how reliable the source was.
