Memorial Day Activities

Memorial Day is coming up so we did some fun, themed Memorial Day Activities to teach the meaning behind the day!

I printed THIS page out from Making Learning Fun and paired it with some dot stickers.  This would also be fun with dot stampers, but I thought I’d up the fine motor learning!  Peel the sticker and place on the flag!
Memorial Day Activities
Have your tot make a flag!  Depending on his level of development, he may be able to cut his own shapes out.  Otherwise, provide white paper, a square of blue, and strips of red.

I let my little G (2 years old) make his own “stars” with a white out dabber.  Easy and fun and what a great way to teach patterning!

 And speaking of patterning, I broke out my star puncher and cut some strips of paper.  Let your little one make pattern strips, doing AB patterns to start and ABBA or ABC patterns as they progress!
