If you celebrate Memorial Day with the kids this is the perfect activity to keep them busy. I have been lightly homeschooling my toddler and love to create holiday themed learning activities for her to do. It is easy for me to try to explain to her why we have certain holidays while she has her hands busy with some crayons and stickers. Even though we don't have close family in the military I showed her some military heroes from some coloring pages that I printed out and explained to her why we celebrate them.
This activity is super cheap too because all you have to do is print this printable and get some star reward stickers in the dollar store. First I took the stickers and peeled off the excess sticker paper. It is easier for my toddler to peel off the stars that way. I laid out the blue and red stickers and the printable. Then I added a sticker in each section of the stripes to show where each color went. Then we counted out fifty silver stars and had fun fitting them all in the blue rectangle.
How do you celebrate Memorial Day with your family?
