It’s no secret that this Memorial Day is going to look different than years’ past. That being said, it doesn’t need to be any less fun while celebrating at home. We wanted to share a handful of activities for both kids and adults to do at home so that the entire family is sure to have a fun-filled day.
Craft like no one’s watching.
A simple way to incorporate crafting and colors and patterns all into one? Take your red, white, and blue papers, grab your tape and scissors and get busy to create some paper streamers.
Have a handful of extra paper plates to use? Why not make a simple patriotic plate wind catcher? You’d be surprised how festive and whimsical these turn out.
Extra popsicle sticks are perfect for crafting this United States flag. Grab your red white and blue paint and get ready to stick.
However, if you’ve run out of popsicle sticks but have an extra egg carton on hand, another great flag idea to create with paint fun is this U.S. flag. We love the 3D look and texture it gives.
