Memorial Day Traditions

july4th

Memorial Day will be on on May 27th, 2013 (check out our countdown widget on the right side bar–it’s on Monday). Memorial Day is a holiday dedicated to honor all Americans who had lost their lives while serving our country. It occurs on the last Monday of every May.

HS-J-2X3AMFLAGOn Memorial Day, many family, friends, and volunteers will visit the national cemetery to honor those who had been in service, and place American flags  and flowers on the graves. Memorial Day used to be called Decoration Day because of the decorated graves.

At 3 pm local time, Americans are asked to pause for 1 minute to signify unity of our country, also known as the National Moment of Remembrance.

Also, the American flag is to be flown at half staff from sunrise until noon. The flag should be raised to the top for a moment before lowering to half staff.

These are only a few traditions to observe on Memorial Day. To learn about these traditions and more, we recommend taking some time to read up on all the different historic and traditional information surrounding Memorial Day.

4th of July Project – Patriotic Hand Print Fireworks

Fireworks are synonymous with 4th of July! Learn a quick project to create patriotic fireworks with hand prints! They’re easy to make, and great for children of all ages!

There are two different types of hand print fireworks you can make. Keep reading for more!

Hand Print Paper Cutout Fireworks

From All Kids Network

For older kids who can work with scissors, this is a fun project to make their own firework hand prints!

Supplies

  • construction paper (red, white, blue, black)
  • pencil
  • glitter glue
  • scissors
  • glue

Kids can take turns tracing their hand prints on the colored construction paper. Cut the hand prints out and glue them into a starburst pattern on the black paper. The kids can then decorate the hand prints with glitter glue.

Hand Print Stamping Fireworks

From Real Bollywood

This version of the project is perfect for younger children! Not only will they have a blast stamping with their hands, they also get to participate in a similar project as the older kids.

Supplies:

  • non-toxic paint (red, white blue)
  • construction paper (white or black as background)
  • glitter glue
  • paper towels for cleanup

Children can stamp their hands into the paint to make their own patriotic fireworks. Alternate the colors before each stamp. Once dried, the children can decorate with glitter glue!
