Friends, money, houses, and social media likes all come and go. Physical health is even temporary. But families? Families are EVERYTHING. They're forever and they're worth fighting for and having fun with! And that's what this month is all about.
We're going to use our free July calendar to help us focus on our family and really bond together! So, are you ready to strengthen those relationships and grow closer as a family?! Let's get to it!
Step 1. Print the Focus on Family Month fun July calendar — if you're not already on the mailing list, SIGN UP for our newsletters to get the free July calendar emailed to you. The easiest way to stay updated is to get on the email list and then follow along on the blog, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. Keep up with all the fun tips and tricks we're sharing!
Step 2. Follow along! Each week there is one main challenge for you to focus on all week. Plus a mini-challenge, tip, or helpful habit to keep you focused half-way through the week. Then, of course, wrap up the week with a simple date or family night to help keep you focused on your favorite people.
Step 3. As always, adapt the calendar to work for your needs and help you get the most out of the monthly challenge. And have FUN!
FUN JULY FAMILY CALENDAR & CHALLENGES
This month is all about family relationships! Don't forget to plan at least one family night a week and one date night a week with your sweetheart! Use our fun summer date night ideas to help you connect with your favorite peeps.
DISCOVER NEW FOOD TOGETHER
What better way to connect as a family than trying out new foods together?! Pick a new recipe to cook together as a family. (Psssttt… ShelfCooking.com has some amazing recipes to give you some great ideas!) Try a new cuisine that you've never eaten before. For date night, choose a new restaurant you've been driving past and always wanted to try!
You don't have to go with expensive or fancy foods. Just have fun and bond together as a family. Use our family dinner conversation starters when you're eating together as a family and our get to know you questions during date night to have fun, dig deep, and make meaningful conversation!
FUN JULY CALENDAR CHALLENGE: LEARN NEW THINGS
You're never too old to learn something new! In fact, you'll grow even closer as a family as you learn new things! Discover a new talent together, whether you all learn the same thing or you each choose something different.
Use YouTube! It's a valuable learning resource, and you can learn anything from how to yo-yo to painting. The sky's the limit! Our boredom busters post also gives your kids, tweens, and teens some good ideas if they're stuck figuring out what they want to learn. Then, for family night this week, have a talent show where you show off the skills you learned!
DISCOVER YOUR CITY TOGETHER THIS WEEK
It's time to be a tourist in your own town! Grab your phones or cameras and go for a walk. Have everybody take pictures of their favorite places, then compare them when you get home. It's a great way to get out and enjoy the summer while also getting a little bit of exercise!
Use our ah-mazing post about how to find fun things to do near you. Have everybody choose something that sounds fun to them, then do it together! Bonus points if it's free… Pack a picnic to really save some money!
FUN JULY CALENDAR IDEA: GET CREATIVE WEEK
Alright, we're getting close to the end of summer! It's your last week to really enjoy before everyone thinks about back to school and being responsible… Get creative this week and explore new hobbies to do together as a family! Have everybody come up with some ideas and then and decide what you want your focus to be together.
This is such a great way to grow closer together as a family and really create those memories you'll cherish for years to come! Make it a point to continue your hobby together, even once the school year starts up again. You won't regret it!
