April

Spring has finally sprung in the Tri-State! Longer, sunnier days mean more time for fun with your family on Tech-Free Tuesdays! Whether you’re out enjoying the weather or the rain has you stuck inside, there’s plenty of tech-free fun to be had. Round up the family and start celebrating Life’s Best Moments with these ideas for springtime fun!

Go Fly a Kite!

What better way to celebrate a sunny, breezy day than by flying a kite? This classic activity will have parents reminiscing on their childhood while making new memories with their kiddos. Try out your kite at your favorite Cincinnati park or in the comfort of your own backyard. With so many different shapes, styles and colors, everyone in the family can pick their perfect kite! Or try building your own kite and put your own flare into it!

Sidewalk Art

Show the neighborhood your artistic side by making a beautiful sidewalk chalk masterpiece! The driveway and sidewalk are your blank canvases waiting for your family art. Make your art come alive by tracing each family member and letting everyone draw themselves. Running out of artsy ideas? Find your chalk inspiration.  And don’t forget to snap a picture of your artwork before the springtime rain washes it away!

Family time.

Family Dance Party

Stuck inside on a rainy Tech-Free Tuesday? Scoot the living room furniture to the walls, roll up the rug and crank up the tunes! A dance party will get you pumped up for family time, and help your little ones get out any extra energy from being inside all day. Spice things up with a Parents vs. Kids dance-off or introduce your kids to some of your favorite music from when you were young!
