Adapting to life in a pandemic, we’ve been spending a lot more time at home with our families and learning how to create experiences that keep us both safe and connected. Even with everyone under the same roof, however, it sometimes takes a conscious effort to bring everyone together. Our best advice: use the fun family tech you all rely on and give these family-friendly activities a try.
Host a YouTube video sharing party
Pass your tablet or smartphone around to every family member and let them add their favorite YouTube videos to the queue or to a shared playlist. Then, on your internet-ready TV, link your device via wi-fi, pop some popcorn, and let the watch party begin.
Show off your dance moves with Apple Music
Get out some of that pent up energy with a family dance party. Create your own family playlist on Apple Music or choose one that’s already curated. Then, simply link up your Bluetooth speaker to your device and dance your heart out. Try setting up your smartphone and recording a video so you can look back and cherish those fun memories – or maybe compare dance moves.
Apple Music is now included for free on smartphone lines with Play More or Get More Unlimited, or free for six months on lines with Go Unlimited or The Verizon Plan Unlimited. For more details on how to get signed up, visit our website or swing by your nearest Cellular Sales store.
Unleash your inner gamer
Thanks to fun family tech, there are hundreds of ways to connect with one another through virtual gaming. Play classic games like Monopoly or Uno each using your own devices or try coming together on one device to play collaborative games like Heads Up! or Charades (iOS & Android). This way, everyone can participate in their own way and show off their competitive side.
Explore the world from the comfort of home
Many world-famous museums and exhibits around the world are offering free online virtual tours, allowing you and your family to explore new things together from the safety of your home. Check out the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., see the Musee d’Orsay in Paris, or experience the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
Check movies off your to-watch list
Now’s the perfect time to catch up on all the movies and shows you’ve been dying to watch using your TV, smartphone, or tablet. Check out shows like WandaVision on Disney+ or First Time Fixer on discovery+, both of which you can stream for free with select Unlimited plans.
Build something new together
Whether you find a cool craft project on Pinterest, a video tutorial on YouTube, or an interesting new recipe to try, gather the whole family around and create something together. Not only will you be spending quality time with each other, but you’ll have a sweet memento to cherish forever.
