Memorial Day is a day set aside to remember with gratitude and pride all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our freedom. Let’s all take a moment to consider these kid-friendly Memorial Day activities to teach the next generation the importance of honoring our fallen heroes.
Consider taking your children to a National Cemetery. Take flowers to place on a grave or attend a Memorial Day Ceremony. Talking about how some people die bravely while protecting our country may help your children understand why we take a day to honor those men and women.
On Monday, May 27th, the US Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration will host Memorial Day ceremonies at VA national cemeteries across the country with the help of local communities.
