Next Monday is Memorial Day and whenever I do any patriotic posts I consult with my husband since hes American and a former Air Force Officer. I on the other hand am Canadian. He explained to me that Memorial Day is really more about the start of summer but I cant help but think that we as parents and educators should at least take some time out to honor those who served and lost their lives for us. My son is all about military history and as I explore this history with him I am reminded how much we all have to be thankful for. While you craft with your kids try to find ways to fit in some of those lessons at whatever level they are at and then celebrate summer . Here are some of my favorite patriotic crafts .
