Since the Bean came along, I've been scouring the internet in search of some neat Memorial Day crafts for us to enjoy together as a family. I happened upon some pretty great projects, and since I believe that sharing is caring, I decided to let you guys in on the fun.
I also found a great resource for educational Memorial Day printables for children. The best thing about these printables is they are made for children ranging from fourth grade to high school, so they'll be plenty of activities for every member of the family to enjoy. This is a great way to discuss Memorial Day and what it stands for with your children while learning a few new things yourself.

By now your expert crafters have probably worked up quite a sweat creating their masterpieces. What better way to cool off then with a delicious and refreshing drink? Have you little munchkins give you a hand with the drinks and then sit back and enjoy the fruits of your hard labor.
If you do one of these projects with your kiddos, be sure to come back and link it up so I can show you off on the blog. Happy Memorial Day and may you take a moment to remember those who have given their lives so that we can continue to live the American Dream.
