Not Sure What to do for Labor Day?

Labor Day weekend is just around the corner, and if you're stuck trying to figure out what to do at home, we've got some recommendations. Whether you're up for a hike along some local trails or you're in the mood for something more relaxing, we've put together a few fun activities that you can enjoy with your family on Labor Day.

5 Fun Activities to Celebrate Labor Day at Home

1. Play some Backyard Games

Now is the time to make use of your backyard. You can set up a few backyard games that the whole family can participate in. A few examples include backyard bowling, lawn twister, or a water balloon challenge to cool off. Cornhole is our personal favorite. Regardless of the game you choose, this idea is sure to set the right tone for your Labor Day weekend.

2. Start a New DIY Project

Whether it's a solo project or you can get the kids involved, Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to tackle those DIY projects that you've been saving on Pinterest. Take advantage of the ample time you'll have to complete your DIY projects, especially if the project you have in mind requires time to set or dry.

3. Self-Care

What good is a long weekend if you can't use it to rest, refresh and reset? In this fast-paced world, we live in, we all need some downtime. So break out the lavender candles, your favorite glass of wine, and enjoy a nice relaxing bath. If you have a book that you've wanted to read, this is the ideal time to catch up on your reading. Alternatively, binge-watch a new show that's been popping up on your recommended list. We've been watching "Alaska: The Last Frontier."

4. Tackle that Never-Ending To-Do-List

We know you have a lengthy to-do list that you just can't get time to do. Why not go through it this Labor Day weekend? This is your chance to work on your garden or finally organize that closet that's been driving you crazy. While this may feel like work it's work for you, it's work that is bound to bring you some peace of mind.

5. Create a New Dessert Together

What better way to make your weekend sweeter than by creating a sweet treat with your family. This is a fun activity that everyone can get involved in. Allow the little ones to help by gathering up the ingredients or mixing them together. Making a dessert together will leave you and your family with fond memories of a great long weekend. Who knows? Maybe it will even become a family tradition for generations to come!
