Labor Day, a day dedicated to honoring and recognizing American workers, is also a day of celebration, relaxation, and fun BBQs. If you’re planning a BBQ with friends and family, but wondering how to keep the little ones entertained, we’ve got you covered! Here are a few fun games and activities that will keep the kids entertained.
1. Bag of Goodies
Create a bag filled with items representing different careers: a stethoscope for a doctor, a spatula for a chef, or a ruler for a teacher. Let kids pull out an item and guess the profession it represents.
2. Footprint Vehicle
This is a wonderful craft activity. Have kids dip their feet in washable paint and make footprints on paper. Then, using markers or other craft supplies, let them turn their footprints into vehicles, like cars, trucks, airplanes, to communicate the importance of transport workers.
3. Career Collage
Provide magazines, newspapers, and printouts of different professions. Let kids cut out and create collages that represent various jobs. It’s an educational activity that broadens their understanding of careers while fueling creativity.
4. The Right Tool
Lay out various tools on a table. Then describe a job or a problem, and let kids pick the right tool to fix it. It’s a fun way to enhance their problem-solving skills.
5. Word Jumble
Create word jumbles using job-related terms or tools. This not only engages kids but also improves their vocabulary and understanding of various professions.
A classic game that never gets old. Set up a cornhole board and have kids try to throw bean bags into the hole. It’s a fun way to improve hand-eye coordination.
7. Ultimate Frisbee
Ideal for a large backyard or nearby park, Ultimate Frisbee combines the best of soccer and rugby but with a frisbee. Kids can burn off energy while learning teamwork and strategy.
8. Water Balloon Relay
Perfect for a warm Labor Day, this relay involves kids passing water balloons to one another using towels or simply racing with them. Just be prepared for some splashes and giggles!
Labor Day BBQs are about more than just food—they’re about celebrating community and spending quality time with loved ones. While the kids are immersed in their games, ensure the adults are treated to some mouth-watering delights. For an unforgettable feast, order from CowgirlQ BBQ today!
