How to Get the Most Out of Memorial Day Weekend with your Family
This blog Memorial Day activities post is sponsored by Home Depot, however all opinions and ideas are my own.
Memorial Day is coming up in a few days and with it a long weekend and lots of celebration. Since we are usually traveling during holidays, we don’t always celebrate the traditional way. This year, however, we are home, and are embracing the celebration.
If you’re wondering how to get the most out of this long weekend, then this is for you.
Here are my top five ways to get the most out of Memorial Day Weekend:
Talk to your kids about why we have the day of remembrance. For the last forty eight years our country has celebrated Memorial Day to honor the 1.2 million soldiers we’ve lost throughout the years. Memorial Day is in honor of their memory and sacrifice.
Bring those you care about together for a BBQ and laugh until your sides hurt. There is no better way to honor the holiday than to enjoy each moment you have. So enjoy it with those you care about.
Pull out the grill, throw on some Embers Charcoal Briquets, get that fire going, and add your favorites to grill up some amazing food for that party. We like to do a little of everything. Chicken, ribs, burgers - all of it. If you don’t have a grill, now is a great time to go snatch one up from Home Depot because they have big Memorial Day savings going on with free delivery and free assembly when you buy from the store. They make it so easy to find the right grill for you and bring on the Memorial Day fun!
Play games! Ring toss, Uncle Sam says (like Simon Says), or a red, white and blue scavenger hunt for the kiddos! Get creative and most importantly, have fun! The best Memorial Day is one full of laughter.
Lastly, you know I’m all about my fashion and while Memorial Day is about so much more than shopping and good deals, I don’t think there is anything wrong with snatching up some savings in between other family activities. I mean, after all, you want to look cute standing next to your new grill. You’ll be servin’ up looks right along with that BBQ. Hey-o!
I’d love to hear about your favorite ways to spend Memorial Day Weekend! Let me know below!
And don’t forget to swing by Home Depot and pick up your favorite grill to use all summer long! If you’re wondering which one I picked, it was the Kingsford Lone Star Charcoal Grill in Black and I absolutely love it! It’s the perfect size for a small family and so easy to use.
