3 Ways To Make Your Child's Memorial Day Special

Memorial Day is rapidly approaching, and we know that this meaningful day is set aside for us to honor those who have lost their lives while serving for the United States Armed Forces. While most young children might not be able to understand the meaning of this day, it is very important that parents teach their young that our military heroes deserve the utmost respect – especially on Memorial Day.

Here are a few kid-friendly activities for Memorial Day to help children realize the importance of recognizing the honor of our fallen heroes:


Sing A Little

Teach your child a patriotic song such as the Star-Spangled Banner, America the Beautiful or Lift Every Voice and Sing. Depending upon the age of your child, you can play a sing along in the car, teach them a few verses of the song, or you might even take it to the next level and learn the entire song.

Do a Little Crafting

Make an American flag together to help your child understand the importance of our country’s flag. You can make this simply by using construction paper and attach them on to bamboo skewers! Just a remember to make sure to keep the flag at half-mast (the position you keep the flag when the country is in mourning).

Make a Patriotic Snack Together!

Customize the food for your child to make this Memorial Day – memorable! You can do something like taking a skewer, cut watermelon into stars, add in some blueberries and marshmallows on to the skewer to make a cute patriotic snack. This is a great way to get your child involved in helping you in the kitchen, and they will love to see their semi-healthy snack eaten.

How will you be spending your Memorial Day? Are there any other hacks that you do with your family in order to help make sure that your children understand the true importance of this day? Remember that if you are doing outdoor activities with your child, make sure you always have your hat and sunscreen ready to go to help protect your baby!
