If you live in one of the many areas of the country that is still social distancing you may not be able to move forward with your usual celebration, like heading to a weekend festival or parade. After being cooped up now for nearly 6 months we need to break the monotony every chance we get. Here are a few fun ideas for social distancing this Labor Day.
Spend The Day Outdoors
If you have a patio, porch or yard, plan to spend the day outside and in the fresh air. Unplug and bring a few board games outside and plan a few small group activities like flying a kite, playing frisbee, croquet, kickball, and more. Also, check your nearest national park to see what social distancing activities they have available or if their campgrounds are set up for social distancing.
Find A Few New Recipes
You may not be able to invite over the same big group of friends and family as you usually would, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t barbecue. To keep things fun, try a few new recipes. From testing a new BBQ sauce to meat rubs, or grilling a different variety of meat, seafood, fruits, and vegetables. This can include trying out a new CBD recipe or two. You could even head to a distancing Farmer’s Market and bring back a variety of artisanal foods, or fresh food to grill. If you don’t have a BBQ an indoor grill will give you those same delicious grilled flavor.
Create A Day Of Fun
If it’s too hot or humid or you don’t have an outdoor space, create a day of fun at home. The goal is to spend the day doing something different than your usual day indoors. Maybe an art or craft, testing out a new board game, or head online and do one of the many Airbnb Virtual Experiences—where you can take a cooking class from professional chefs from around the world!
Host A Virtual Labor Day Party
Holidays are one of the times of year we catch up with loved ones we don’t get to see as often as we may like. To make sure you don’t miss out on this quality time together, host a virtual party. Send out evites on Zoom and let everyone know the itinerary. You could all have cocktails, eat lunch together, play an online game, have a dance party, or just take turns updating one another. If not a large group, schedule to catch up solo with those you haven’t seen in a while.
Here's to mixing things up to ensure your social distancing Labor Day is fun!
