Memorial Day Activities and Ideas for Families
Memorial Day Parade
Most cities and towns have their own version of a Memorial Day parade. This is a fun way for the family to spend Memorial Day. When you attend a Memorial Day parade, you and your kids have a chance to see a long line of those who have served, and the candy is always a bonus.
Head to the Park
Parks are always a great place to spend any holiday. They’re the perfect place to sit back, have a picnic, and reminisce and what big holidays like Memorial Day means. You can take the meaning of the holiday and fuel that to create the perfect family day!
Serve the Local Community
Memorial Day is a day of remembrance, so why not spend it giving back to the community? Find a local business or nonprofit that could use your help. Perhaps a church or soup kitchen could use your help this Memorial Day serving local veterans. Maybe the local homeless shelter needs someone to help with their landscaping. Find something that your whole family can get involved in.
Serve a Veteran’s Family
Think of all of the people you know who may have lost a loved one serving our country. Think of all of the grief that are living with and what a single nice gesture could do to help them heal?! Consider taking them a meal or a nice potted plant to thank them for what they gave in order for us to be free.
