    We did not have a TV for a couple of years when I was a kid. Dad called them idiot boxes and didn't want one, although everyone had them. Ultimately he caved to pressure from my brother. But for a time we were screenless in an era when everyone had screens. We did a lot of fun things and made many memories without having screens in our lives.

    Books - we went to the library every 2 weeks
    Art supplies
    Hobbies
    Knitting and crochet
    Puzzles
    Board games
    Musical instruments

    Conversation (?!?!?)

    Outdoors - hiking, biking, camping, sports, horses, gardening, etc.

    Museums
