Beat the Heat with Family Game Night

Texans wait all year for the sunshine, warmth and summer breaks. Until about mid-July when the temperatures hit above 100 degrees and suddenly you feel as if you can’t be breathe.

Picnics, biking and walks along the Trinity River are great activities to fill those long, never-ending summer days. However, the triple digit weather makes these outdoor activities less desirable, even unbearable. Move the troops inside this summer and beat the Texas heat with family game night.

Goodwill Fort Worth is the place to find family-friendly, fun and engaging activities to keep the kids entertained in the comfort of the air conditioning. The entire family can get involved and enjoy a puzzle or a classic board game.

For those nights when you need some quiet and a little less action, a family movie or book might be the right idea. We carry a varied selection of movies and books from the classics to more recent releases.

Don’t forgo outdoor physical activity all together, but consider taking the family indoors for quality time together and breaks from the scorching heat. Before you know it school will start, the temperature will drop and we can all head back outdoors.
