family still life drawing

Last week, we went TV and movie free. It was pretty amazing and confirmed my suspicions. We are all happier and calmer without it. We aren't going to part with it completely, an occasional movie (maybe weekly?) is fun, but that's it.

We typically have a Friday movie night, so for TV free week, we had an art night instead. I put a realistic pig stuffed animal in the middle of the table and we all sketched and chatted. It was nice, quality family time and in the end we had some nice drawings, too.

How much TV do you watch in your house? Have you found a good balance? We have cut down a ton, but it is still something I struggle with. (Remember the TV cozy?)
