Week Of The Family 2019 | San Carlos

Since its inception in 1999, the Week of the Family Committee has designated the Monday evening of the week as a night reserved for families to stay at home and do something specifically with their family. It is hoped that reserving one night per week will become habit-forming. To show their support, San Carlos principals unanimously declared Monday, as a “No Homework” night.

Family Activity Night is for everyone. You are encouraged to “adopt” friends and neighbors who would enjoy an evening of family activities.

Ideas for things to do as a family:

  • Play board or card games
  • Get out the family photo album
  • Make up a play or story
  • Make dinner—everyone contributes a dish
  • Make a family calendar
  • Read a book aloud (book lists are available at the library)
  • Write letters to grandparents or other family members
  • Draw or paint a picture
  • Learn how to use a compass
  • Pull out your old records, tapes, CDs, then listen to and discuss music
  • Tell stories from your family history
  • Go to the library
  • Bake bread
  • Start a family journal
  • Sing

Some Interesting links for additional things to do are:

  • Disney Things to Do
  • Things for Younger Children
  • Fun Art Activities
