10 Ways to Spend Memorial Day Weekend with Your Kids & Family

Memorial Day weekend is coming up, and our family cannot wait! We will be doing a little traveling with the kids, but that next week we are checking off almost every one of these on our list. Memorial Day is a day to remember those who have died serving our country, and it has also become the unofficial start of summer and end of the school year.

We are hoping for some warm, sunny weather since it’s been years since we have went anywhere for Memorial Day weekend. If you’re not traveling, check out my list below as I’ve got some great ways to spend the weekend with your kids and family. Most likely your kids will be out of school and it will feel like a much needed break from school. They will definitely have some excitement and energy and be ready to do something fun for the weekend!

10 Ways to Spend Memorial Day Weekend With Your Kids

1.) Attend a local parade together.

2.) Have a backyard picnic or a picnic at the park.

3.) Watch an outdoor movie in your yard.

4.) Go for a walk or bike ride together.

5.) Visit the pool or splash pad.

6.) Go camping (or camp in the backyard.)

7.) Have a cookout and play yard games.

8.) Make red white and blue popsicles together.

9.) Pack up care packages for troops.

10.) Place flags or flowers at veteran’s gravesites.

Whatever you do for Memorial Day weekend, try to spend some time doing at least an activity or 2 to show your kids what Memorial Day is really about. And be sure to have plenty of fun in the sun too! Enjoy the long holiday weekend and summer! What are your plans for Memorial Day weekend?
