Seeking inspiration for what to do with the kids on Memorial Day weekend? Spare yourself 30 minutes of scrolling through Pinterest... and check out this list of our favorite snack and activity ideas instead!
Handprint crafts are the best! Not only do your kids get to enjoy getting a little messy and exploring their senses, you also get a lovely keepsake to look back on in years to come. We love this craft because all ages can join in and all you need is some card, paint and silver glitter glue if you want that extra sparkle.
Looking for a kid-friendly and not too chaotic snack station? Why not give these fun and patriotic pretzel wands a try? Our kids would have a blast dipping and decorating them, not to mention actually eating them as well!
These are such an effective way to decorate your outdoor party area for Memorial Day. Older kids will have a blast making them, and younger kids will delight as they watch them blowing in the wind!
Each summer we're wow-ed by the intricate American flag shaped dessert trays food bloggers assemble. But, to be honest, most seem like way too much work to actually pull off, with kids, on a holiday weekend. This one has zero cutting or chopping required and is easy enough that even your littlest ones can help you assemble.
Slime is such a crowd pleaser! Why not follow this amazing sensory patriotic slime recipe and set up a slime station outside! There are so many strong learning links when making slime, but most of all, it's really fun!
Nothing screams holiday weekend like chips & dips. Are we right or are we right!? It is equally delicious both warm and cold and can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge. It's so easy and a great tried-and-true crowd pleaser! We recommend just sautéing some canned corn, instead of grilling corn as she recommends, to save time!
We can't wait to let our kids choose a snack and craft idea for our family BBQ this Memorial Day. Spending time together over food and creativity is such a winner for us. Have a great weekend, friends.
