TV Free Child

September 30, 2013

How to entertain a toddler without excessive television?

Our little girl was pretty much tv-free until she broke her leg and since then the screen time since has exploded. When we started receiving requests for movies upon waking in the morning, we realised the time has come to go tv- free.

We received a bunch of lovely suggestions to entertain our little girl which was ever so welcome. Thanks everyone!

I hope by putting together a little series of our favourites as we travel along our journey of recovery it will serve as a resource for parents looking for child entertainment ideas.  With an emphasis on things to do with your little one, rather than plonking them in front of the tv.

So stay tuned...  simple little fun things to do coming soon :)



  1. So will I, 'stay tuned' ,as I know I rely on the TV far too much now......we had no TV last year for a good 8 months, until our circumstances became a bit of a mess, and I caved in and signed up to SKY ( was the first time in 8yrs ).....welcoming any ideas :)
