Here we are finally, the start of the summer season and Memorial Day is upon us. Now is the best time to get the family all together for some good times and great memories.
Check out some of these fun and affordable ideas to make this Memorial Day a super one!
BBQ Fun. So if you are lucky to have good weather, then go ahead and have an easy BBQ right at home with all the fixins. You can keep things low cost by grilling hotdogs and hamburgers only and making homemade sides instead of buying the expensive store bought ones. Pick up a whole watermelon, slice it up, and there you have it!
Campfire. The best part of the warm summer nights to come is going camping, but why not start now right in your backyard? The kids will love roasting marshmallows! You can also just head out to a local campground and rent a site for the day and have an affordable, yet fun-filled day of grilling and creating memories.
Picnic Fun. Now here is where you can get really creative! Get the kids involved and pack a fun picnic to take to your local park. A helpful tip is to send Dad early to reserve a good spot and while he’s hanging out there, you can get the kids in the kitchen to make their favorite sandwiches and snacks. Bring some outdoor games and you have a super easy, yet affordable, day ahead!
Movie. Don’t let inclement weather get you down this Memorial Day. Just let everyone pick a movie, pop some popcorn, and hunker down for a movie festival. With all the movie streaming options these days, you are bound to find a favorite for everyone. Here is a perfect time to even have an indoor picnic right in the living room.
Scavenger Hunt. Bring back family interactive games like a scavenger hunt. You can go online and print a list of items and either hunt indoors or outdoors. This is a perfect time to get everyone involved in finding all kinds of interesting items. Offer a fun prize to the winner who finds everything on the list too!
