Memorial Day Kids Activities

Memorial Day Kids Activities and American Flag Preschooler crafts to celebrate USA PATRIOTIC holidays with Montessori inspired practical life, sensorial, and math invitations to learn.

Today, we are paying homage to the Memorial Day, a day to show solemn remembrance of the brave Americans who have laid down their lives for the freedom we so cherish.

In the morning, to honor those brave men and women and to make it special for Julia (who is off from school today), Adrian cut some fresh peonies from our garden to decorate the table. He also set the placemats (buy similar here) and utensils (buy here) for their special Memorial Day breakfast.

Julia then read to Adrian a Memorial Day book (buy here), and we talked about the significance of this holiday, during which we pay tribute to those who died serving in the military, while protecting our country, our values and our freedom.

Another great fine-motor exercise is to using a tweezer to sort stars by color. (We are using confetti stars.)


We love using Holidays as themed unit-studies for our activities, which adds newness, diversity, and a spike in interest.ย Memorial Day Kids Activities are a fun way to promote important developmental skills while teaching children, through American Flag Preschooler crafts, about the important Patriotic holiday!

I hope you enjoyed our USA PATRIOTIC Kids Activities! Which Memorial Day craft was your favorite?
