We live in a fast-paced world saturated with technology and social media; however, every once in a while, it's nice to press pause and enjoy a low-tech family activity.

It seems like "Fun" has been so thoroughly digitized, we can't conceive of anything to do without a WiFi signal. But there is a big world out there, so if you can bear to switch off Netflix and your smartphone for an hour or two, you might actually have a real-live conversation with your own flesh and blood.

Some examples of low-tech family activities are playing a board game (Monopoly, anyone?), having a picnic or even playing a round of cards. Though these activities may seem old-fashioned, there are a range of innovative options out there to keep things interesting.
