August is Family Fun Month

There’s no better time to focus on having fun as a family than the last few weeks before kids go back to school. Spend a day at the beach, lake, or pool. Organize a family baseball game. Take one last family vacation. However it is you choose to take advantage of the last summer month, your whole family will benefit from a little extra time spent having fun together. Here are some ideas for 20 activities to do with your family from Parents Magazine. This sand castle scrapbook would be a fun craft to help kids to put together at the end of the summer to remember all of the fun times they had!

For family dinners, try these kid friendly meals:

Arroz Con Pollo

Arroz Con Pollo with its layers of cheesy chicken, black beans, corn and rice is sure to be something the whole family will love.

Italian Stuffed Shells are a time-tested Dream Dinners favorite of the whole family. Kids love the large, cheese-stuffed shells and adults love the ease of cooking – simply place it in the oven to bake!

Penne with Chicken and Peanut Sauce is not only delicious, but it takes just 15 minutes and one pan to make so you’ll be able to spend more time with your family and less time cooking and cleaning up.
