FountainSide Fun Challenge: Inspired by St. Vincent Family Center

Check out the Scioto Mile blog all summer long for a weekly FountainSide Fun Challenge. Our community partners will share and inspire an array of hands-on activities, crafts, and games for family-friendly fun at home all summer long. Join FountainSide on Wednesdays—it’s hard not to care for the groups Columbus has to offer!


This week’s FountainSide Fun Challenge comes from the St. Vincent Family Center! Specializing in helping kids, families and communities be their very best, St. Vincent Family Center promises to be there when no one else can. This week’s theme is “Caring for Columbus”, the same as their mission—so we challenge YOU to create a craft with the ones you care about!

Need a snack while you create? Share a bite with someone who cares for you with these heart krispy treats!


Join the St. Vincent Family Center at FountainSide Wednesday, August 3 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

In addition to splashing around with the Fountain Frog, learn how the Columbus Zoo cares for animals, recognize the importance of your yard with Franklin County Soil & Water and get sporty with Buckeye Mobile Tour to show our Buckeyes some love!

Additional activities this week are hosted by Lowe’s, Local Matters, OSU Urban Arts Space, and the McKnight Outdoor Education Center.
