Did you know August is Family Fun Month? As summer comes to an end, it’s the perfect opportunity to bond, create memories, and strengthen the ties that hold your family together. Whether you’re a fan of board games, culinary adventures, outdoor exploration or backyard movie nights, we’ve got a lineup of five exciting family activities that will make this August one to remember.
Get in the Kitchen
What brings a family together better than food? Embrace your inner chef and embark on a culinary journey by hosting a “Make Your Own Pizza Night.” Set up a variety of toppings, sauces, and cheeses, and let everyone personalize their pizza masterpiece. The process of crafting your own pizza not only results in a delicious meal but also encourages creativity and teamwork in the kitchen.
Learn & Challenge
Try playing a board game! Pull out a board game you haven’t played in a while (Scrabble is always a classic) or try out the new Ozobot Color Code Magnet Kits for a board game with a STEAM twist. Color Code Magnet Kits offer an exciting hands-on STEAM learning experience perfect for all ages, even as young as Pre-K. Explore the world of coding while having fun with the whole family.
Take advantage of the summer weather by heading outdoors for a family bike ride. Explore your neighborhood, local trails, or a nearby park. Biking outside has many benefits including supporting physical activity and cognitive health while also providing an opportunity for quality bonding time. After your ride, set up a picnic to dine al fresco. Spread out a blanket, enjoy the fresh air, and savor a meal together amidst nature’s beauty. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
Looking for more fun family activities? Transform your backyard into a cozy movie theater for a memorable movie night. Hang up a white sheet or use a projector screen, set up comfortable seating, and dim the lights as the sun sets. Prepare some popcorn and snacks, and let the cinematic experience begin. Choose a family-friendly film that everyone can enjoy. Watching a movie under the open sky adds a touch of magic to the evening.
No robot? No problem. Download the free Evo App and experience Evo in AR (Augmented Reality) with MetaBot. Dress your 3D robot in one of the limited-edition summer costumes like Evo at the Beach, Shark Fin, or Duck Floaty and watch Evo come to life right in your space.
In the hustle and bustle of daily life, dedicating time to family activities is a wonderful way to reconnect and create a sense of togetherness. Whether you’re strategizing your Scrabble moves, learning to code using Evo and Color Code Magnets, putting on your chef’s hat, or pedaling through scenic paths, you’re building a treasure trove of memories that will be cherished for years to come.
So, gather your loved ones, embrace the spirit of adventure, and make this Family Fun Month truly exceptional. Let the laughter, creativity, and joy that these family activities bring be the foundation of stronger ties and heartwarming memories that will last a lifetime.
