August is Family Fun Month, and there are lots of ways for you and your crew to enjoy the last weeks of summer. Summer is all about picnics in the park, spontaneous adventures, road trips, big summer movies like Dora and rocking out to your favorite summer anthems -- all with the people you love most! Dive deeper into your #maglife with our end of summer bucket list.
Whether “adventure” to you means setting up a tent in your backyard or roughing it in the great outdoors, gathering around a campfire is a great way to disconnect from technology and reconnect with your loved ones. What’s a campfire without a little kumbaya, story-telling, and s’mores? August 10th is #nationalsmoresday! So break out the graham crackers and chocolate, and get ready for a one-of-a-kind ooey-gooey treat! Keep you and your family safe on this trip with the MAGLITE ML300L 4D LED Flashlight that can run nonstop for more than two weeks on just 4 D-cell batteries.
Relax, Eat, Repeat
Nothing says summer like swimming and BBQ! Grab a cute pool float, play some bean bag toss, grill up your favorite food and a little flashlight laser tag in the evening. Relax poolside or in the grass, eat some watermelon, and invite your friends over. Sometimes the best memories are made when there’s no agenda!
Dance like no one’s watching!
Many communities have street fairs, festivals, and events all summer long. Check your local city’s website to see what’s coming up before you miss out! If you’re going to a concert in the park, make sure to bring some portable chairs, blankets, and snacks… and don’t be afraid to get up and dance!
(Almost) Endless Summer
Does it even count as summer if you didn’t go to the beach? Plan a day full of splashing, sunbathing, and making sand castles. If you really want to make a day at the beach feel endless, catch the sunset and gather around a bonfire -- hey, there’s another opportunity for some more s’mores! Ever have your perfectly roasted marshmallow (or hot dog!) fall off that wire hanger or bamboo stick? Check out your local hardware store for easy-to-use roasting sticks that are sure to keep you and your food safe. This MAGLITE CITY LIFE KIT has both a pocket/purse light and a key chain light, which makes it easy to store in your tote and incredibly useful for finding your belongings in the sand! It's available in 9 fun colors!
Enjoy the little things!Whatever you and your family choose to do for Family Fun Month, we hope that you create memories to last a lifetime. Enjoy the little things as much as the big things. And if you need a light, use a Maglite flashlight so you can save your phone battery for all of those pictures you'll need to take. Don't forget to snap a photo of you and your family checking off your summer bucket list with #maglife! You could win a trip for two to Southern California next summer in our #MagSwag Trip Contest.
