Labor Day Activities

The first Monday in September is just five days away. This means it’s time to start planning how you want to spend your Labor Day this year! For those of you who are looking for new ways to enjoy Labor Day, here’s a list of some activities to try. 

  1. Try a New Recipe

We all have our go to recipes, and when we’re busy, we don’t take the time to branch out and try new things. If you have this Labor Day off from work, take some time to make that recipe you’ve been dying to try. 

  1. Set up an Outdoor Movie

If you’ve ever been to an outdoor movie, you know how much fun it can be to just relax outside while being captivated by a movie. You can get this same experience at home with just a projector, pillows, and blankets. If you don’t have a projector, pull up a movie on your laptop instead! Even if you don’t have Labor Day off this year, you can still end your day with an outdoor movie.

 Rainy days aren’t always fun when they come around and sometimes they end up ruining plans. It may make you feel trapped and leave you feeling bored. Despite this, rainy days can be beneficial for a variety of reasons. It may allow you to take a much needed break or catch up on some things around the house. Needless to say, being cooped up can feel restricting, but here is some indoor activities to help keep you busy:

Now is the time to pick up that book that you’ve been planning to read, but haven’t been able to get around to. Go ahead and grab that book and find yourself a comfy spot to seclude yourself for that quiet time you need.

  1. Take a nap

What better time to catch up on your beauty sleep than now? Get cozy, snuggle up, and relax!

  1. Watch that new movie or tv show

Like that book that you kept promising to get around to, put on that new tv show or movie your friends have been raving about. Sitting down long enough to watch a few episodes of that new show won’t harm anyone.

  1. Bake

This one can be helpful in also curing that craving for chocolate you’ve had since last week. Depending on what kind of ingredients you have currently in your house you might have help in deciding what to make and how much of it too.

  1. Game night

Get all the kids out of their rooms! A little family time will be sure to leave you with plenty of laughs to help you pass the time.
