Low-Tech Toys

We limit screen time for the boys to 30 minutes a day so I often heard they said, "What should we do now, ma?" once they're done with their screen time and still have some free time. So thought I made this Low-Tech Toys List for my 7 and 4 years old boys and print them out that way I can just point them to it whenever they ask me that question.
