Perfect example — I will not be spending this Labor Day drinking too much, eating too much and laying out in the sun. I will probably spend the holiday breaking up fights between my toddlers and praying that they don’t get heatstroke if we spend more than 20 minutes in direct sunlight.
But I have learned a valuable lesson in my three years of having babies and now toddlers. Roll with the punches, come up with a few asinine activities and your children will think you’re a hero. You heard it here first. Labor Day can still be a good time if you adjust your expectations and think of creative ways to entertain your kids:
And then when you’re done, take another one.

This could also take all afternoon.
Kids love this shit.
Try your best to be festive and have fun. In reality, prepare for lots and lots of crying in the car.
KIDDING. This is festive but probably unsafe. Please find other ways to celebrate.
Red, white, and blue Jell-O will be the literal highlight of your toddler’s week.
I’m going to be honest — this really has nothing to do with children.
It’s a holiday, and they can’t tell time. It’s the perfect crime.
