Soak Up the Last Moments of Summer with These Labor Day Activities

Country Living Logo By Laura Kostelny of Country Living | Slide 1 of 21: You’ve made it through the highs and lows of an unusual spring and summer, and just as you’re getting settled into an undoubtedly new school routine, it’s time for Labor Day! Celebrated on the first Monday of September, this day of beauty was dreamed up by the labor movement in the latter part of the 19th century, and it's been a Federal holiday since 1894. You’re likely no stranger to labor these days. The extra cooking, cleaning, and parenting required with staying closer to home means that this year you deserve a fun holiday more than ever. The great news is that many stores and restaurants were already closed on Labor Day, so you might end up having a holiday that feels more normal than you think. You could plan a barbecue and cook up some of the best grilling recipes and easy summer desserts and play an array of outdoor games suitable for all ages. Feeling fancy? Anyone can watch a parade, but why not break out the bikes and organize your very own socially distanced Labor Day parade up and down the block? Really, the possibilities are endless—which is why we've done all the, well, labor and come up with a ton of family-friendly ideas for a day well spent
