Family Fun Month

Though you never need an excuse to spend more time with your family, sometimes it helps to have a little reminder to slow down and enjoy one another’s company.  That’s what Family Fun Month in August is all about—and with summer winding down, it’s the perfect time for kids and parents to spend some extra quality time together.

These all-new Family Fun Month journal prompts are special because they contain plenty of exciting activities for families to enjoy together. 

Family Fun Month Writing Ideas

Simply choose an activity that appeals to your family and plan a day to try it out—and afterward, sit down together and reflect on your experiences in a shared journal entry. 

You can also have the kids do the writing and then discuss their thoughts together as a family.  It’s a great way to build special memories and to also help kids learn the value of quality family time.
