Back to School

As summer comes to an end the fun doesn’t have to! Check out 6 fun things to do as a family before school starts.


Vacations can be expensive and at the end of summer, the family budget may be tight. This, however, does not mean you have to miss out on having fun. Plan a backyard picnic for the family. This a great opportunity to use the 240Fire island to chill drinks and cook burgers for the day. For a more portable option at a park, Trinity Fireside’s RovR coolers and Everdure Cube make a picnic on the road easy!

This could include a group of kids racing to find items at the store, or simply finding clues and solving riddles in the house and neighborhood. Have immediate family or involve a group of friends. Afterward, relax outdoors and roast by your fireside. Trinity Fireside’s Artisan Fire Bowls are perfect for roasting s’mores and make a great to end a scavenger hunt.

Invite family and friends to join in on a friendly (or competitive) game night! Have traditional games or come up with a completely new set. For large groups, take the games outside and enjoy grilling on the OFYR grill to whip up food with ease. With less cleanup and large grilling space, there’s plenty of time to enjoy the evening with minimal mess.

Support a cause that is close to your family’s heart. Think about ways to help the community or help others in need as a family. Filling back to school backpacks for kids in need is a way to spend time together while giving back.

Spend the day enjoying the beach, lake, river, or pool! Turn a backyard pool into your very own waterpark. Trinity Fireside’s outdoor kitchens allow freedom to spend the day outdoors without needing to prep and cook inside. Watch the kids swim and easily prepare meals for the family.
