Board Games are Good!


Board games seem to be a forgotten art in today's modern world of screens and technology. That's why you might be surprised to learn that more and more people are turning to board games in the wake of society becoming addicted to tech. Even UNICEF has recommended board games as part of their family activities recommendations! Even though a TV is not involved, your family will enjoy board games no matter what.

Card Games


Card games don't have to be something that you only play when the electricity goes out. But if it does, you will definitely enjoy! Go Fish, War, Monkey, Pig, and Casino are just some of the plethora of games that you can spend time with. Check out more card game choices here.

Arts & Crafts


Arts and crafts shouldn't be saved just for school. Imagine all the fun your kids and even teenage kids can have if you set up a few fun projects for them. Whether it's crayons, magic markers, paint, or even clay - these is a ton of art and craft projects that your kids can and enjoy. Check out some more arts & crafts project ideas here that every kid will enjoy with the family!

Hide and Seek

Hide and seek is an oldie but goodie. And for neurotic parents who don't want their kids getting lost in the park, this could be especially fun in the confines of one's home, and much safer too! And, imagine if the lights are off, it will make it even more exciting. Check out the official rules here, thanks to Wikipedia!!



Okay, we couldn't resist. If your family cannot handle non-technology related games, well, it might be time to buy some batteries or a generator and turn on your smart phones or watch TV. To be fair, a night in front of the TV, with a family friendly movie turned on, would not be the worst thing in the world. But this is only if options 1-4 on this list didn't work out!
