Memorial Day, May 31, 2021
We have updated our Memorial Day Holiday Helps page — unit resources that can be used for learning or for simply celebrating the Memorial Day holiday. This year we have added an excellent resource that explains the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
In addition, you will learn history of the holiday, and find crafts to make, books that fit the occasion, decorations to hang, and instructions on flying, folding, and handling the flag respectfully. There is also a link to our favorite flag cake to make and decorate!
You’ll also find other activities, printables, free notebooking pages, and more aimed at helping you and your family celebrate Memorial Day.
Our Memorial Day Holiday Helps page has been around since May 24, 2006 (originally posted in our HomeHearts Journal)! And in the intervening years it has expanded and grown. We continue to be honored that other sites have found the information helpful in providing ways to celebrate Memorial Day with kids.
