Interior Savings Unplug and Play in the central Okanagan is back April 18 – 24, and although it will look a little different than in past years, there will be lots of fun and free ways for families to disconnect from their devices and reconnect with each other.
Leading the charge again this year is Project Literacy who has partnered with over a dozen community partners in the central Okanagan to create a week of activities that will get your family exploring, creating and playing. Take and make crafts, scavenger hunts, a story walk and obstacle course are just some of the activities that will be offered this year. And all will follow public health guidelines. See the full schedule of activities here: https://unplugandplayweek.com/free-family-activities/
As in past years, there will also be a learning opportunity for parents and caregivers. This year, Childhood Connections is presenting Helping Kids in Times of Loss, Grief and Change; a presentation by internationally recognized speaker and author, Barbara Coloroso. The event takes place April 21 with two sessions: one in the afternoon for early years partners, and one session in the evening for child care providers and parents.

We hope that you and your family enjoy a week of unplugged activities and carry forward some new ways to unplug, and reconnect long after the week is over.
