Weekend Planner

Labor Day

August 29-September 1, 2014

Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of summer, so make the most of the long weekend by having an outdoor picnic with your family. Make some kid-friendly crafts, play some family-favorite board games, and fire up the grill for a delicious, home-cooked meal. This might be your last chance to really relax before the school year gets into full swing, so enjoy the down time with your little one while you can!

Variety is the spice of life! Swap out boring sandwiches for simple and healthy alternatives, like crackers and cheese, veggie or fruit kebabs, pasta salad, or breakfast for lunch (such as yogurt and granola, or whole wheat waffles).
