5 Last Minute Ideas for Memorial Day Get Togethers

Happy Memorial Day! As you know, today our country takes recognition of its men and women for protecting and serving for so many decades now. In an annual celebration, parties will take place all weekend and into Monday. Even if you haven’t had the time to plan anything to do, there are always great ways to celebrate in style around the people you love.

In a last minute honor of Memorial Day, we have taken a little bit of time to list some simple and satisfying ways to make the most out of your Holiday. They aren’t the best we have ever come up with but hey, we want to have some fun today too.

1.) Have a Cookout
It doesn’t take long to throw some hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill and grab some chips, desserts, and sodas or alcohol. What more do you really need than your loved ones to join you in a celebration feast with?

2.) Play Games
Whether you want to spend the day inside or out, games are a great way to keep everyone entertained. Charades. potato sack races, throwing footballs and frisbees, and so many more.

3.) Play Music Chairs
Music is a great idea to have at any get together. You can use it for background noise, karaoke, and even a friendly game of musical chairs.

4.) Fly a Kite
If the weather in your areas allows for it, grab your kite and watch it take flight while keeping the neighbors and other party to enjoy too. There’s nothing like a colorful kite flying in the sky on a gorgeous Summer day.

5.) Make a Slip-n-Slide
For the kids and grown-up kids at your get together, a water slide is a cheap and simple way to add a wave of fun. All you really need is a large waterproof tarp, some duct tape or other force to hold it down with, and a hose pipe for the water, and now you have your own mini water park at your party.

It doesn’t matter what you do on this day and long as you get to have fun. The best thing we can do on this day however, is keep in our thoughts those that have put their lives on the line for our country so that we can be here today to celebrate and live.

If you know or see any veterans, give them a personal thanks, which are far too few in this day in time.
