Week Of The Family 2020 | San Carlos

San Carlos will celebrate its 21st annual Week of the Family which sees hundreds of families come together for fun, free activities in the San Carlos neighborhood from January 17 – 25, 2020.

The goals of the San Carlos Week of the Family are to:

  • Strengthen family relationships
  • Provide families in our community the tools that help families
  • Promote family life
  • Honor and pay tribute to families
  • Encourage families serving families
  • Have lots of fun

The San Carlos Week of the Family is an annual event organized by community volunteers whose goal is to strengthen family relationships by providing a series of activities focusing on family and community interaction. Celebrating twenty year, the Week of the Family committee and its volunteers are proud to contribute to the quality of life and the family-orientated community of The City of Good Living.

Please join the hundreds of families that have enjoyed Week of the Family by participating in one or more of the mostly free activities offered. You’re sure to find something entertaining and fun for your entire family.

San Carlos families take many forms. Everyone in our community is encouraged to participate.

Week Of The Family 2020 | San Carlos

Since its inception in 1999, the Week of the Family Committee has designated the Monday of the week as a time reserved for families to stay at home and do something specifically with their family. It is hoped that reserving a set time each week for family time will become habit-forming. To show their support, when the event is not on a holiday, San Carlos principals have historically declared Monday, as a “No Homework” night.

Family Activity Day 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
