10 Tech Timeout Ideas for Autumn

Autumn - 800x450Nathaniel Hawthorne once said: “I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.”

That was more than 100 years before the first modern computer was invented.

Perhaps the exact same thing.

With that in mind, here are 10 Tech Timeout ideas for digital-free autumn fun this year.

  1. Go for a ride in a hot-air balloon
  2. Learn how to build a campfire and roast marshmallows
  3. Make a homemade card for your grandparents or parents

  5. Fly a kite
  6. Go to an apple orchard and pick apples
  7. Watch geese flying south for the winter with your family
  8. Learn how to make a family favorite recipe
