12 Ways to Enjoy Memorial Day with Your Family
Have Dinner Outside
Play Yard Games
Host a Family Pizza Party
Have a Picnic
Watch a Movie Outside
Memorial Day weekend is no time to be inside! Gather the family and set up an outdoor movie screen. It's easier than you think and is a fun Memorial Day idea you can use all summer long. Don't forget the popcorn.
Go to the Beach
If you leave near an open beach, sink your toes into the sand and relax during Memorial Day weekend. Gather your family and head to the local shores. Whether it's a beach, lake, or pond, your family will love being outside. Don't forget the sunscreen, drinks, and towels!
Kick-off Memorial Day weekend with a delicious (and patriotic!) brunch. Even at home, you can make the weekend special with a DIY bloody Mary bar and fun red, white, and blue decor.
Camp in the Backyard
Pay tribute to those who served by visiting a nearby cemetery. Place flags and flowers on the graves and honor those who have fought for our country. It's a great way to spend quality time with family and honor the meaning and history of the holiday.
May is National Bike Month. If you don't already have bikes for the family, late spring is a good time to invest in one you can use all summer long. For kids we recommend the Schwinn Classic Kids Bike ($170, Amazon). Dress up your bikes with Memorial Day decorations like stars and streamers ($11, Walmart), then head out for a family ride. Add decorations to your helmets and wear red, white, and blue for a fun and patriotic ride around town.
