5 Ideas for Your Memorial Day Celebration
Although we may not be able to gather in large groups for our Memorial Day celebrations, here are 5 things you can do with your family that will keep the weekend fun and educational.
- Visit DuPage County’s Virtual Memorial Day Celebration
DuPage County’s interactive Memorial Day portal (dupageco.org/memorial) allows folks to honor the memories of family and friends as well as features lots of educational videos and information you can share with your family.
- Make Your Own Memorial Day Poppy
Red poppies are often worn as a sign of remembrance on Memorial Day. You and the kids can make your own with tissue paper and few materials. Get the step-by-step tutorial here.
- Create Patriotic Chalk Art
We have absolutely loved seeing all the creative chalk art local families have created over the past few months, so why not take it to a patriotic level? If you want to go beyond American flags, check out some of these ideas.
- Make Something Sweet
Nothing makes a weekend celebration sweeter than a little themed dessert. From red-white-and-blue berry pizza to mini stars berry pies, check out these great recipe ideas here.
- Have a Moment of Silence
Let your children know what Memorial Day is all about by taking a moment or two during the weekend to quietly remember those who have served.
Have a great weekend!
