Coronavirus has brought a lot of late-spring and early summer fun to a halt. And while things are slowly opening back up, your annual Memorial Day cook-out is probably going to be a bust this year.
But you don’t have to give up your celebrations up completely. There are still plenty of ways to throw the ultimate at-home Memorial Day celebration. Here are some fun ways you can make the most of your time at home this Memorial Day.
It wouldn’t be a Memorial Day celebration without red, white and blue decorations. If you haven’t put your flag up in a while, now would be a great time to put it up.
If you don’t have a flag currently, you can try a pompom American flag craft or some popsicle stick star streamers.
Learn how to make these crafts — along with several others with these roundups:
Plan your meal
A huge part of Memorial Day comes in the form of the annual cookout. While you can’t really invite the entire neighborhood over without presenting a huge risk to them and you, you can still host a socially-distanced cookout with those living in your home.

Commemorate the day
It’s a bummer, but you’ll be hard pressed to find a Memorial Day parade this year (and by hard-pressed, we mean you won’t).
But you can still pay homage to those lost in pursuit of our country’s freedoms — and there’s no better way to do that then teach the next generation about their sacrifices.
You can do that by reading a Memorial Day book to your kids, researching and sharing your family’s military history or writing a letter to a veteran.
Check out our roundup for more ideas — just be aware that some may not fit in with the restrictions this year.
