All you can see for the next three days is no school and (hopefully) no work, which means every hour is an opportunity for fun. Don’t know where to begin? 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.


It wouldn’t be a proper Sunday without a leisurely breakfast. Try out this classic buttermilk pancake recipe.

Your Morning Fun
Here’s a novel idea: spend the morning without any technology (gasp!). Put away those phones and screens and fill your a.m. with tech-free fun. Here’s how to do it.

Got hot dogs for that BBQ around? Make pigs in a blanket! We have nine recipes they’ll gobble right up.

Your Afternoon Activity
Science you can eat?! Yep, that’s right. Thanks to our story you’ll kill two birds with one stone: experimenting and snacktime.

Call us traditional but we think Memorial Day weekend wouldn’t be complete without throwing something on the grill. We’ve come up with a bevy of kid-friendly grilling recipes to get you inspired.
