A&W is celebrating 100 years of sweet family memories by calling on its fans to create new ones. And I think it’s a wonderful idea! Plus we love A&W Root Beer. This summer, Peyton and I are taking the pledge to go screen-free for at least 1 hour on Friday nights and spend it together. We are also adding a little A&W Root Beer into our Friday night routine as well.
When I was growing up, we would spend evenings playing checkers and enjoying A&W Root Beer Floats. I had forgotten how much fun it was until I started doing this with Peyton. Checkers is the perfect game for all ages because it only takes a short time to play a round. Or if you have 2 very competitive people (like Peyton and I) it can take a little longer.
So, to help celebrate A&W Root Beers 100 years we will be doing the following –
Make sure our fridge is stocked with A&W Root Beer and our freezer has vanilla ice cream
Have a selection of board games and checkers ready to go
Enjoy screen-free family time every week
How to Make an A&W Root Beer Float –
In our house, we keep it simple. Find a glass, jar or mug. Fill with large scoops of vanilla ice cream. Pour ice cold A&W Root Beer over the ice cream and enjoy!!
I highly suggest ice-cold A&W Root Beer otherwise your ice cream will melt super fast. I personally like to enjoy spoonfuls of ice cream and soda together. It’s just so yummy!!
Once we have our floats ready it’s time to play some checkers! Or another board game. Sometimes we play several different games in an evening. And you know the best part? The kids are having so much time they never ask for the tv to be turned on. Heck, most Friday nights this summer we haven’t turned a screen on once we’ve started family time!
So what are you waiting for? A&W Root Beer is offering coupons for A&W Root Beer for every family that takes the pledge. Simply log on, take the pledge and print. It’s that easy! To help provide families with everything they need to jumpstart their Family Fun Nights this summer, A&W also debuts a first-of-its-kind Family Fun Night box, featuring a carefully curated selection of novelty items and essentials for creating root beer floats at home, to help make family time even more memorable. The limited-edition, fun-inducing box is available while supplies last at www.rootbeer.com.
