🎖️Memorial Day - How We Remember

Today, we are paying homage to the🎖️ Memorial Day, a day to show solemn remembrance of the brave Americans who have laid down their lives for the freedom we so cherish.

In the morning, to honor those brave men and women and to make it special for Julia (who is off from school today), Adrian cut some fresh peonies from our garden to decorate the table. He also set the placemats (buy similar here) and utensils (buy here) for their special Memorial Day breakfast.

DSC_0017As a food offering: Adrian washed some berries and served some nuts.


DSC_0017Children also enjoyed hot cacao.

Julia then read to Adrian a Memorial Day book (buy here), and we talked about the significance of this holiday, during which we pay tribute to those who died serving in the military, while protecting our country, our values and our freedom.

Below are some of the Memorial Day inspired activities.

We love using Holidays as themed unit-studies for our activities, which adds newness, diversity and a spike in interest.
