Hi, I'm Kailan, and I'm all about helping parents (and grandparents) keep little ones busy without the use of technology.
My kids are 7 and 9 now, but I've been there. Limiting screen time was (and still is) so important to me, but it wasn't easy!
It takes a lot more planning and preparation than handing over your phone, but it is SO worth it. It is an investment in your child's future, and the payoff is a child that doesn't need to be entertained by a screen. Creativity will be abundant!
Kids will hop on the technology train soon enough. Let's first teach them how to use their imagination, interact with others, and provide activities that don't require staring at a screen and shutting out the world. (Ever tried to get the attention of a screen-connected kid?!)
Quiet Books were the first pillar in my business and were my GOLD at occupying my littles out and about. I love helping swap members make their own in an easier, more cost-effective way.
I started creating more and more activities for my kids to do during the pandemic (I was a teacher for 6 years before kids) and the Inner Circle was born!
The treasure hunts are a HUGE hit and the original one I created was an Easter basket treasure hunt way back when my daughter was 2.5!
Your memory-making and sanity-saving activities are all right here!
Here's what the membership includes again...
At least 6 different printable screen-free activities EACH month for ages 3-7.

A FREE gift sent to you on the anniversary month you signed up
Finding screen-free activities is about to get WAY easier.
Content will be released on the 25th of each month. You will be charged on the 24th of every month.
If you joined for the printed materials, they will be shipped when you order, and then on the 26th of every month after. You'll get access to the digital files of the current month as well.
For example, if you join December 28 you will get January's printables shipped to you (released December 25) and digital access. Then you will get charged on January 24 for February's printables.
How long do I get access to the content?
Each month's new content will be available for 2 months to watch and download the printables. They are yours forever once you download and save them to your computer!
How do I access the content?
You will get an email from me each month on the 25th with a link to download new content in a Google Drive. Save it to your computer because it will be gone after 2 months!
What age is this good for?
Each month's activities will include something for children age 3-7. Wherever I can, I will differentiate it (former teacher here!) to have different difficulty levels. Some older 2 year olds may be able to do the activities as well! My kids started treasure hunts at age 2 when they could listen and follow directions as I read them the clues.
What activities do I get?
You will always receive a minimum of 6 different printable activities, but often I will include more! You can expect a variety of holiday treasure hunt clues, scavenger hunt lists, pretend play set ups, busy bag activities, felt templates, coloring pages, learning activities, play dough mats, and fine motor activities. I also include a round up of crafts, STEM, sensory, and snack activities for the month!
Are all the activities holiday related?
Not all, but there are some activities involving the following U.S. holidays: Halloween, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, and 4th of July and likely some resources to learn about other culture's holidays. November will center around food, family, and gratitude and December will include Christmas, Hannukah, and Kwanzaa. Easter will include my Easter Basket Treasure Hunt clues, but will be more about spring and animals. Inclusion is important to me!
What is your screen time philosophy?
I recommend sticking to the guidelines set forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics. I am not anti-screen time. It is a useful tool in your parenting tool belt! But there are so many better choices you can make when it comes to screen time, and boundaries are key. I always kept screen time for my kids at home on the TV!
What is your refund policy?
Because you get instant access to the teachings and printables, there are no refunds.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancel any time! No commitment required.
Can I share the files?
You can print as many copies as you'd like, but please don't send the files to others. I would appreciate you sending those interested in the activities to become a member themselves!
Do you take requests?
Sure do! It doesn't mean that it will happen immediately, but I would love to know activity ideas that you want to see more of!
Are you ready to hit that easy button? Give yourself a break and bring your kids the fun! Join the Inner Circle and get started!
