5 Ways to Connect with Your Family by Unplugging

Connect with your family right now.


We live in a world where technology rules. Laptops, iPhones, and Netflix continue to eat up a lot of time in our lives, including our kids’ lives. But how can we put down the technology and reconnect as a family? Here are some ideas to get you started.


Get together in the kitchen – Now is a great time to get creative in the kitchen – and get the whole family involved! Even young ones can help with washing up, measuring out ingredients, and decorating whatever creation you decide to cook or bake.


Host a talent show – We all have talents and passions of our own. Get the family together for a talent show to showcase what each of you are proud of.


Tell stories – Take turns in creating stories originating from a random theme or location. For example, each of your stories has to contain a ghost or must take place in a forest. You will have fun together thinking up unique stories and hearing each other’s creations.


Look after pets – Pets are a part of the family, too! They often need additional attention from their human owners, so make sure you incorporate plenty of bonding and caring time to dedicate to your pets. Teaching your child how to care for furry friends helps to become more compassionate, too.


Organize a family game night – Get out Monopoly, Pictionary, Scrabble or whatever board game your family love! Encourage creativity and discussion with your loved ones – and have fun!


While technology can get in the way of our family bonding, it can also help to strengthen our ties. If you are away from loved ones in this time of COVID-19 and are unable to visit them, make the most of calls, texts, and video calls through Skype and Zoom to connect with friends and family.
