They say Labor Day is the unofficial send-off of summer, so why not go out with a bang? Here are a few at-home activities that can help you celebrate the holiday and give the sunshine season one last acknowledgement before you’re cozying up inside with your throw blankets. We love these pandemic approved Labor Day Weekend activities that you can easily set up with family or close friends:
Have an Outdoor Movie Night
This is a great idea for a family with kids who seem to get bored easily when the sun goes down. Instead of letting them get caught up in their tablets or phones one Labor Day weekend, plan an outdoor movie night. As long as the weather permits it, you can easily set up your own outdoor theater with an arrangement of patio furniture, throw pillows and blankets, as well as a projector and an empty wall to play the movie. Don’t forget the snacks for the kids and the drinks for the adults!
Plan a Small Bonfire
Even though social distancing is still highly recommended, you’ve likely been keeping your circle small and spending time with those specific individuals to keep yourself sane during these strange times. A bonfire with close friends and family members is the ultimate send-off to summer, complete with a cozy atmosphere, delicious s’mores and loads of conversation. Reflect on the summer you had and talk about what you’re most looking forward to in the fall and beyond.
Take Care of the Last Minute Yard Work
You’ve probably been taking care of the yard all summer, but the colder weather is going to make it less of a high-frequency chore. Put the final touches on your yard now, so you can relax and enjoy it before the leaves start to fall.
Spend Some Time Outside
If you don’t plan on getting together with friends or family for Labor Day and you want to take advantage of the time off to spend on your own, create a day of relaxation in the backyard. This is the perfect time to sunbathe, read a book and sip on something sweet. Don’t forget to surround yourself with fragrant flowers from Teleflora to kiss summer goodbye in the most refreshing way possible.
