Fun Family Internet Activities During the Holidays

December 17, 2015 10:11 pm

Technology has helped simplify many of our day-to-day tasks. It has also made it easier for us to stay connected with one another regardless of distance.
But, it is the same technologies that have made interactions become more impersonal and have turned quality time into screen time.
It doesn’t have to be this way. There are many ways by which technology can be used to bring people together, especially families.
Here are three family-friendly online activities to try over the holidays.

  1. Plan a holiday

It’s so fun searching for fun destinations to visit and plenty of new activities to try. Share the experience with the rest of the family by going online and searching for stuff to do in different parts of the country, or even the world. It doesn’t matter whether you will actually go in the immediate future or not, the fun is in sharing the experience with the family and finding out more about what each member is interested in doing or is passionate about.

  1. Enjoy some face time

For families living apart, applications that make voice calls and IP video chats possible are heaven sent. Gone are the days when people had to spend a huge amount of money to stay in touch with their relatives abroad. Now, calls, texts, and file exchanges can be done with apps that provide free service. This holiday season, spend time with people you love even if they live far away. Share experiences and tell stories without spending a fortune using IP telephony services.

  1. Play Christmas-themed games

Did you know there was a way for you to track Santa as he makes his rounds and delivers gifts to children? You read that right. Norad lets you track Santa Claus’ geographical location as he goes around the world bearing gifts for children. The website also features games and other fun-filled activities perfect for the family. It’s a unique way to get into the Christmas spirit and share a bonding moment with loved ones.
