Reusable Boards & Fun Games

Reusable drawing boards are a great on-the-go activity that’s not just screen-free but encourages many fun games and activities. My son’s favorite reusable board is a very basic little whiteboard I bought. We take it everywhere we go along with reusable pens and a reusable cloth. When my son was younger we used it for tic-tac-toe. Now we play older kid games like hangman and sometimes he’ll just use the board to draw on.

Good old Fashioned Books (Gasp)

I feel like parents have forgotten books exist. It’s just as simple to carry a book along when you go out as it is a smartphone. Except a book entertains without the screen and if you go the library or used bookstore route, books are very reusable and inexpensive. You can easily take a book into a restaurant, in the car or to a play date and there are tons of excellent books out there for all ages and all personalities.
