Five activities for an unforgettable Labor Day

Labor Day weekend activities at home

With Labor Day on the horizon it’s easy to get the post-summer blues. But a long weekend of relaxation and time with friends and family is the perfect way to send summer off with a bang. Hard work is meant to be recognized and rewarded and that’s just what this weekend is about. Here are five activities you can do this Labor Day to soak up the last weekend of summer.

1. Host a backyard bash

Say goodbye to summer with a fun-filled backyard party. Invite friends, family and neighbors in your community for a cookout and incorporate outdoor games for all ages, like croquet, cornhole or spikeball. Ask guests to each bring a homemade dessert and host a mini-contest for the most delicious flavors. Offer special refreshments to keep everybody cool under the sun. Cap the party off with an outdoor movie on a projection screen and make end-of-summer memories you’ll never forget.

2. Spend time outside

Cooler weather and shorter days are right around the corner, which means this long weekend is the ideal time to take advantage of some last minute warm sunshine. Whether you take a group hike, spend time at the lake or just simply relax on your front porch, dedicate a portion of your weekend to enjoying the last bits of summertime.

3. Retail therapy

A long weekend means plenty of time to hit the shops and spend some of that well-earned money on new things for your home, your family or just on yourself. Many retailers and local shops use Labor Day as an excuse to get rid of their summer inventory, which translates to big sales and great deals for your wallet.

4. Decorate for fall

Pumpkins, red and orange leaves, festive signs and scented candles. A weekend of relaxation offers ample time to get your home ready for fall. Dust off the boxes in the attic and get your home ready for autumn-themed parties, holiday dinners and more time spent inside.

5. Tour a Lennar community
