Use our weekend itinerary to help with the planning. Whether you have an entire weekend to fill or just a morning, check out our ideas below broken down by manageable nuggets of time.


You have 72+ hours of new memories to make. Fuel up for the long weekend with breakfast that isn’t cereal, and won’t take you hours to make (win!). Check out our ideas for quick and easy kids’ breakfast recipes by clicking here.

Your Morning Activity
You’ve played grownup all week so it’s time to give it a break—at least for this morning. Get back to being a kid in all the best ways possible with your own kiddos. Here are 10 ideas to get you started.

Over the grilled cheese or PB&J’s? Us too. The end of the school year calls for a new take on lunch. Try out these lunch ideas that aren’t sandwiches.

Your Afternoon Fun
Maybe you have a few family traditions or perhaps, none at all. Today is the perfect time to start a new one. How about a new take on happy hour? Or, getting lit (no, it’s not what you think)? Find the best Friday traditions by clicking here.

TGIF, indeed. You deserve a break from planning and cooking. Rely on one of these meal delivery apps that’ll make dinnertime a total breeze. Now, go relax.
