Have You Taken the Challenge?

Play Unplugged is dedicated to helping kids of all ages unplug themselves from TV, video games, and cell phones so they can re-engage with the world and enjoy a less sedentary lifestyle. However asking kids to turn off their favorite video games or television shows isn't easy! So how in the world do you get kids to do it and do it willingly? Here at Unplugged we've come up with a plan to make it easy and fun. Follow these steps and you may be surprised how easy it can be! Learn more about the Play Unplugged Challenge.
Discouraging sedentary lifestyles and exposure to violence in media by promoting healthy activities through education and incentive programs.

Step 1 - Turn It Off

It all begins with giving your kids a choice. We know we know... what if they choose to play video games? It’s a risk you'll have to take. But if you plan ahead and prepare yourself with things they could be doing rather then focusing on what they shouldn't be doing, they just might surprise you. Need some ideas? See Step 2.

Step 2 - Plan Ahead

Need some ideas? We've come up with 101 activities that's sure to please even the grumpiest kid. Complete any activity and receive an official Unplugged Brag Badge. Challenge your kids to collect as many as they can before the end of summer. The more you earn, the better your chances to win $$! Still no luck? See Step 3.

Step 3 - Don't Give Up

It might take a few attempts, but don't give up! Recent studies show that in as little as 5 days away from the TV, you'll start to see a difference in your child's behavior. The key is consistency. Create incentives of your own. Choose a few Brag Badges to earn as a family. Before long, they'll be hooked. If not, well... See Step 1.

Repeated exposure to media violence is a stronger influence on aggressive behavior than is living in poverty, engaging in substance abuse, or having abusive parents. Learn More
