Ideas for National Family Fun Month
0

Try some of these healthy and free ways to celebrate National Family Fun Month this August:

  • Check out a county park. With 32 different park sites, there’s bound to be one near your home that your family finds of interest, whether it’s to explore the area, have a picnic or play together.
  • Get out and walk. Take a stroll around the block in your neighborhood, on a trail or even in the mall … there are plenty of places for you and your family to get moving. The county’s 12 public recreational trails provide a variety of options for all skill levels. Worried about the August heat? Head to the TownMall of Westminster on Saturday, August 9 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. and join Walk Carroll, an exercise program for all ages and activity levels from The Partnership for a Healthier Carroll County. Learn how much activity is required for you and your loved ones through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines on physical activity.
  • Plan a family night. Take time out of your family’s hectic schedule for a family night. Start by preparing a meal together, then find an activity your family loves to do, whether it’s playing board games, completing a jigsaw puzzle, watching home movies, telling silly stories or even singing karaoke!

But don’t stop with the family fun when August ends; make it a priority every month. Rid yourself of the day-in-day-out distractions, like phones and television, and focus on strengthening bonds and making memories.
