A Simple Way to Enjoy a Labor Day Activity with Kids
If you need a print-and-go way to celebrate Labor Day with kids, this free word search is a fantastic choice. It's an easy and excellent way to take your holiday celebration to the next level.
Labor Day (an annual holiday on the first Monday of September in the United States) is often a lovely time of year. Where my boys and I live (western Pennsylvania), the weather is still summer-like. If you're in school (or homeschool), you typically get long holiday weekend.
I've had each of my boys ask me about Labor Day - what it is and why we celebrate it as a national holiday. When my youngest recently asked me about this holiday, I decided that I wanted a simple printable activity, like a word search, to kick off our conversation and learning fun.
That's why I've created and shared this free printable Labor Day word search to use with my boys and give to you!
