Memorial Day is a special time of year for families.

The holiday marks the unofficial kick-off to summer – the moment kids have been waiting for! But first and foremost, it’s a time to remember and honor those who gave their lives protecting our country.

Creating patriotic crafts is fun and easy way to commemorate Memorial Day. They’re also perfect options for when the Fourth of July rolls around, too.

From flags to fireworks, your family has a lot of star-spangled inspiration to work with! Here are some Memorial Day crafts to get your children ready to celebrate Memorial Day in red, white and blue style.
