5 Easy Ways to Make This a Memorable Memorial Day

Memorial Day is waning on. So far I’ve accomplished plenty of household chores, but no real fun activities for the kids. In an attempt to save the day and get them moving and having a good time on their day of, I came up with a few fun and easy ideas to make this Memorial Day memorable.

  • Margaritaville 1 of 5
    Serve up a patriotic treat with these margaritas. The colors of the flag represented, these can be made kid-friendly so everyone can share in the celebration of our freedom.

    Take a bike ride to your local ice cream shop. One of our favorite activities as a family is to grab our bikes and head out around the neighborhood. The local ice cream shop is a favorite destination for special occasions, and a perfect stop on a day like today. No ice cream shop? Take your bike ride while your ice cream is hardening in your freezer, and then come home to a creamy treat.
    Make Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Watermelon 3 of 5
    Watermelon is a family favorite around here. Slap it on a stick with a cute cupcake liner for easy serving. Plus, the kids will love their watermelon pops!
