Create a Memorable Memorial Day

While for so many, Memorial Day weekend is the official kick–off for the “summer season,” it is a very serious holiday, and we feel like it’s a great opportunity to let family and friends, and kids know what it’s all about.

Memorial Day is a time to honor members of the armed forces who have given their lives in service to our country. It also means an extra day to spend time with family—but how? Try one of these family friendly and kid-approved ways to enjoy your time. Create your own tradition this holiday! Plus, we’ve passed along some of our favorite little recipes to enjoy.
