Currently, Boon and his family live in a remote rural New Zealand. Everyday without technology such as TV and iPad make Boon children spend more time playing outside.

Well, in everyday life, fathers and mothers can also invite children to do fun activities, without the need to capitalize gadget. Including the following :
- Inviting children walks to the park or zoo.
For children aged 2 years and above, they could be taken for a walk to the park or to the area around the house. Thus, children can explore the surrounding environment.
This activity can be the experience of a child for example, when he saw a strange animal in the park, she dared to hold a cat, it can be a rewarding experience for the child.
- Doing homework together
Children also may be asked to help father washing a car or motorcycle. Or, he could be asked to help mothers cooking or baking. According to Astrid did not notice the problem from the aspect of safety. By helping mother make cookies, children can feel the texture of flour as she patted or touched any of the ingredients of cake for example.
"It's just the end result is not the child managed to do something, but boy enjoying the moment, enjoy it when he held hose fitted wash motors, sensing flour beaten," said Astrid.
- Making toys together
Parents can also encourage children to make toys together, such as play dough or slime. Or, take the little coloring, drawing, or making crafts together. For example, make a piggy bank from bottles.
