Cool technology-free things to try

Try some of these activities for a tech-free day at home. You may be surprised at the creativity and fun you can have!

Go on a hike

Going on a hike is a great way to get some fresh air and exercise. If you want to make your hike a bit more tech-free, try using apps that can help you navigate through trails without the use of cell phone towers (like a GPS or hiking app). Just be sure to put your phones in flight mode before you start so they won’t drain their battery by searching for a signal.

Other fun tech-free activities include making pipe cleaner creatures, friendship bracelets, diamond painting, pom pom rug or learning something new as a family.  YouTube is a fantastic resource to learn anything from golf to cross-stitch or model cars but it is also not screen-free so keep your phone out.

 There are many different ways to explore the nature around you. You can look for plants and berries you may not be familiar with, identify animals, or even forage for food. For some people, this can be a daunting task, especially when there are so many unfamiliar things out there. But it is possible, and it can be a lot of fun!

 Rather than just letting your eyes be overwhelmed by the beauty of nature, make a game out of it. Start with a small challenge, such as trying to spot as many flower petals as you can on the trail.

Go on a nature walk

Nature walks and hunts are an awesome way for kids to learn about the natural world and connect with their environment. They’re also easy to do outdoors without having to go anywhere!

Encourage kids to observe their surroundings by playing games such as “I Spy” and looking at the shapes of objects, like trees or rocks. Using paper and crayons, they can do bark rubbings and explore how each tree’s bark is unique.

They can also collect (responsibly) things found on their walk to create art, such as sticks and pine cones. They can even make their own rock and stick garden! They can also use their collected materials to make a framed autumn leaf collage.

Cool technology-free things to try include a variety of creative activities. These are great for learning new skills as a family, such as making pipe cleaner creatures or diamond painting. Or you can teach kids how to make their own friendship bracelets. It’s important to find creative activities that you can do as a family because they build a strong bond and are a lot of fun.

This list includes games and activities that are low-tech and can be done as a family. These activities are great for teaching kids about science, math, and art – while they’re having fun! The best part is that they don’t need any technology!

Technology has come a long way, and there are many tools available to help you work more efficiently. However, before you start using any of these technologies, you need to analyze the specific area where you’re going to use it. In this way, you’ll know whether it will be a boon or a curse to your productivity.

Take a Walk

Going for a walk is a great way to spend some time in nature. You can talk with your family about the things you see, or use an app like Seek to identify different plants and animals. It’s also a great opportunity to exercise! Make sure to wear comfortable shoes. You can also take a brisk walk in your neighborhood. You’ll get some fresh air and see your neighbors’ decorations!

A 2014 study from Stanford University found that people were 60% more creative when they were walking outside or on a treadmill than when they were sitting still indoors. There is no real explanation for this, but it appears that it’s the extra blood flow to your brain that makes you more creative while walking.
