Family, fun and food. It’s time to celebrate Memorial Day and the unofficial kickoff to summer. Here’s some of our favorite ideas to help make your long weekend extra great!
Cookie Cutter Finger Food
Everything is more enjoyable when you use a cookie cutter! Little fingers can grab cut-fruit and flower sandwiches with ease.
Red, White and Blue
Appealing to all and patriotic to boot! Try this kid-friendly, lip-smacking punch from Mom Endeavors
Firework Hot Dogs
These hot dogs get extra-special treatment when you spear them on a stick, wrap in crescent roll dough and top with a star-cut cheese slice. Your kiddos will go star-spangled silly with delight.
Build a place to relax and play with everyday items like hula hoops, old sheets, foam play mat tiles, pillows and blankets. It’s an outside family fort of awesome!
All you need is a plant hook and bucket and your set to remain sunburn and bug-free all-day long. Don’t forget to reapply frequently throughout the day. Snack time is the perfect time to track down your busy bees for another application.
Light Up the Night
So simple! All it takes are some balloons and glow sticks to keep the family fun going.

Family Selfie Spot
Hang a big frame from a tree to create the perfect place for your outdoor, Memorial Day photo op!
Start with this mega-bubble recipe: 5-gallons of water and 10-cups of a gentle dish washing liquid. Pour into a kiddie pool and let the giggles begin. Add a hula hoop–and your barefoot little one to the pool–while an older child or adult creates the giant bubbles.
Don’t forget the fresh summer ‘do from Snip-its! Stop in this weekend before the celebration begins to clean-up and cool-down your little one’s summer hairstyle.
Have a safe and happy holiday!
