Plan a Weekend Getaway – Look to local or nearby destinations for a fun weekend getaway that will enable your family to make a number of great memories with one another in the short time that that the kids are out of school. During long holidays weekends, you might consider a camping trip or exciting road trip!

Organize a Neighborhood Block Party – Connect with your neighbors and get the proper permits to throw a day of fun, family and games.  Whether you designated the block party location in a nearby park or decide to block off your street for the celebration, be sure to encourage attendees to help provide food and decorations.

Enjoy an Outdoor Hike and Picnic – Take the kids out on a nature hike as a fun means of learning about plant life and local wildlife.  Additionally, hiking can be an exciting and interactive means of keeping the family active. As an added activity, consider packing a delicious and nutritious picnic meal for everyone to share outdoors, if the weather permits.

Attend a Community Festival or Event – Labor Day brings about a number of great opportunities for families to attend community events like food festivals or outdoor concerts and fairs.  Look into what might be happening in your area and gather with friends and neighbors for a fun day out.
