Long weekends are something that come far and few in between, and we all look forward to them. For those with children, though, long weekends can sometimes be more of a problem rather than a respite. After all, parents would want to keep their children occupied and spend some quality time together without spending too much money. Here are some activities that you can do this weekend – all of them either free or very affordable.
Go to a free outdoor concert. Outdoor concerts with no admission fees are part of Labor Day weekend. You just have to check what’s going on in your area to find something that you and the kids may enjoy. It is also a great time to have a picnic. Make sure you bring everything that you will need – blankets, tarps, chairs, food, and drink. It’s a good idea to go early, so that you can get a good spot.
Support workers by joining or watching the parade. Labor Day weekend is not just some holiday which gives us another day free of work. In fact, it was conceptualized to celebrate the American worker, remember? More than likely, there will be a parade in your town or city. You might want to take this opportunity to educate your children on the American work ethic.
Go apple picking. This is more appropriate in states such North Carolina, Virginia, New York or Washington – where it is apple picking season. If you find yourself looking for something to do on Sunday afternoon, why not head on over to an apple orchard and have some good old fashioned fun?
