Activities The Entire Family Can Do Together On The PC

 

As a parent, it is only natural to be hesitant about technology, especially when it comes to family time. With our hyper-connected and ever-busy lifestyles, a PC can actually prove to be helpful in connecting families - here's how:

1. Become a family of gamers

Multi-player games are a fun way to spend time together and have an added bonus if they’re learning games such as the one in Sporcle. Think of games as a way to keep the entire family entertained, learn a new thing or two and practice being competitive for real life!

2. Watch videos that get everyone talking

TV is a big part of our daily lives. A family can take this love for video content to another level by watching videos that maintain a fine balance between entertainment and education on TedEd and MocomiKids to spark a discussion at the dinner table.

3. Take up a project to do together

A “project” is usually associated with something from school or work but actually, websites such as Disney Family and Pinterest have brilliant ideas that the whole family can enjoy together. Pick ones that are recreational, short-term and with a little bit of learning for a Sunday well-spent.

4. Channel the inner storyteller in all of you

Everyone in the family has a story to share with about school, work, friends, and so on. Channel your child’ inner creativity positively by creating a comic together online either on Canva or Read Write Think, polishing both writing and storytelling skills.

There are many more activities a family can do together (and enjoy themselves) with a PC at home - all you have to do is take the time out to explore and see what works best for your family. After all, your children are benefiting not only from the quality family time but the practice of using a PC too, which helps them in school and for the future. [1]
