Turn Off the Computer and Play

NWF Happinin' Habitat friend and partner, the celebrated ZOOM PBS series, encourages children to get away from the computer and play together. Some of this encouragement is for indoor games and some for getting outside. No matter. The main point is for kids to havev fun together rather than be locked in an isolated "computer trance." Check out ZOOM's site for an inspiring list of fun games for kids. It is also agreat reminder of how easy it is for kids to get together and have fun. Photo from PBS ZOOM
