Technology is a necessary evil and my husband and I debate as to what age our kids can handle their own devices. While we have restrictions on our daughter’s phone she is often found hanging in her room, not being social with the family but “listening to music”. She is being social in the modern way of social media.
It is time for our family to take the JOLLY TIME Pop Corn family pledge and Unplug Pop Connect To get the kids excited that the TV is not even going on, we are sharing some game night ideas that will encourage everyone to have fun without a screen.
In order to prepare we purchased a few snack items, including a variety of JOLLY TIME Pop Corn, and movie candy. Also have a few cellophane bags.
The excitement will erupt when they catch a whiff of the popcorn and then see the variety of candy they can add to their own bags to enjoy during our game night. Kids like to have their own snack and no fighting over who ate the last M& M, that will happen b/f the game even starts!
With the popcorn snack bags filled the family can get started playing board games that might otherwise be collecting dust.
My family went crazy over the JOLLY TIME Xtra Butter variety. I tend to go light on the butter when I make popcorn at home. My husband who loves pop corn kept talking about how good the JOLLY TIME tasted.
I personally love the sweet and salty Kettle Corn variety. The good thing about microwave popcorn is that it’s super easy to make a few different varieties for the family.
This summer our family has decided to make a habit of the Unplug. Pop. Connect pledge and do it once a week. So you can too, JOLLY TIME Pop Corn’s Unplug. Pop. Connect. site and share your family pledges in order to receive a high value coupon or possibly win prize package!
