Hard to believe, but this weekend marks the beginning of summer and yes, Memorial Day will be here. For many it means cook outs, days at the lake and even perhaps some yard work. We will get to that later, but let’s discuss some Memorial Day fun that does not involve lawn maintenance.
We have some great ideas, but we loved the ones we found at Better Homes & Gardens. Here are a few of our favorite recommendations for some family fun!
Have Dinner Outside
Gather for a casual dinner outside to celebrate the unofficial start of summer. Keep the dishes and decor simple; bunches of fresh-from-the-garden blooms star on this summer table. Serve up dishes that showcase in-season produce like berries, asparagus, and greens.
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.
Roast S’mores Over the Fire
Dessert is a must-have for any Memorial Day cookout. And nothing screams summer like a smoky roasted s’more. Set up an outdoor fire pit and all the fixings to make classic s’mores. Adults and kids will love this fun Memorial Day activity.
