Now that it’s August, summer may feel like it’s over. Back to school shopping has already begun and vacations are coming to an end. However, that doesn’t mean that the summer fun has to stop!
August is National Family Fun Month, which means that it’s a great opportunity to seize the remainder of summer by spending time with family. If you are about family togetherness, here are some cool activities to help you and your family finish out the summer.
Day trips are a great way to spend time with the family. If you checked the weather forecast and it’s going to be hot/sunny, then plan a trip to the beach. Enjoy the fresh air and the cool water. If the water isn’t your families thing, then a trip to the zoo is something that is both lively and educational. A competitive game of miniature golf can be fun or even a trip to an amusement park can make for much laughter and fun. But before you take any of these trips, make sure to download the #njtrafficapp. This FREE app allows you to see the road conditions across NJ and helps you plan accordingly.
Jump on your bicycles and take a family bike ride. Make sure everyone is wearing properly fitted helmets and all bikes are in good riding condition. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen and discover new ways to appreciate your neighborhood. If you are more adventurous, visit NJ Family Biking for a complete list of trails to ride.
Have Pokemon fans in your house? Lace up your sneakers and take a walk with the family. Most public places provide ample Pokemon balls and critters are everywhere to be found. Just be sure to review pedestrian safety tips before you head out.
And when the day is coming to close, consider having a family movie night. Pick out your favorite family movie, get the popcorn ready and relax with the kids!
Spending time with family is a great way to make memories that will last with you for the rest of your life. Make sure to take part in August Family Fun Month. It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you are safe and are having fun with your family!
