Fun Memorial Day Picnic Ideas


What better way to kick off summer than with a Memorial Day picnic! Whether you’re planning a day out with the family or spending it in your backyard grilling burgers, here are some fun ways to make your day a little more patriotic:


It’s amazing what paint, glue guns and a little elbow grease can do to an aluminum can. This Patriotic Upcycled Can Flower Pots Centerpiece is a simple way to spruce up your picnic table. This craft is also kid-friendly. Don’t forget your favorite flowers.


If you don’t mind high sugar content, these Layered Drinks are a fun addition to any picnic. This specific recipe calls for Ocean Spray Cran•Apple™ Cranberry Apple Juice Drink, White SoBe® Pina Colada flavored drink, Blue G2 Gatorade and ice. However, you can use whatever juices you’d like. Just remember that the drinks with the highest sugar content should be the bottom layer.


A fruity and colorful dessert option is this Strawberry Blueberry Mini Cheesecake Trifle. Not only is it delicious, it’s eye-catching, too.

These Red, White and Blue Marshmallow Pops are a grab-and-go treat that kids will have fun eating. Who doesn’t love marshmallows, especially colorful ones?

For fans of sweet and salty, Celebration Pretzel Sticks are just for you. Not only are these easy to make, but they’re also fun to decorate. The key is to only melt one color at a time, and then drizzle away!

If you’re looking for ways to involve the kids, you’ll find Memorial Day quotes, coloring pages, history lessons and more here.
