As Labor Day approaches, let the party planning begin! Don’t have the time to go on vacation? Skip the packing and enjoy a stay-cation in Baton Rouge this year! From slip ‘n slides to outdoor theaters, we’ve put together a list of our favorite backyard activities to try this Labor Day weekend!
Go beyond the typical backyard barbeque this Labor Day by getting all the guests involved. Challenge everyone to bring their best signature dish to the party. Designate a few lucky judges to taste test and give out a gift card or other fun item as the prize!
Keep cool this Labor Day with an at home slip n slide. With a few tarps and some expertly placed sprinklers, an at-home slip n slide can provide a day of fun for all ages!
If you’re looking for something out of the box this Labor Day, try going with a fun theme. Familiar with the rule to not wear white after Labor Day? Throw a Whiteout party and ask your guests to come decked out in all their white clothing. Don’t forget to incorporate this theme into your food or decorations too!
Between larger than life lawn games and outdoor giant screens for virtual games, your backyard can become the perfect outdoor arcade. Organize teams and have a tournament for extra fun. Be sure to include these fan favorites in your set-up:
If you’re looking for an evening activity this Labor Day, an outdoor theater is the perfect way to spend the evening! If your home is white, or a lighter neutral color, you can simply project on the side of the wall. If your house isn’t suited for the cinema, a king size sheet hung between trees can serve as the perfect backdrop for a nighttime movie. If you’re looking for a more permanent theater, try a white tarp or waterproof material with anchored polls.
Once your screen is ready, grab blankets, pillows, lawn chairs and anything else that helps you relax, and end your Labor Day right!
