Memorial Day weekend is a time of reflection for our fallen soldiers, reminding us to commemorate their heroic efforts, while spending time with our own family. This idea is not always easy for our littlest ones to understand, so why not create something patriotic together to celebrate this important holiday weekend?

Here are a few festive red, white and blue projects for Memorial Day to complete with your kids, ranging from decorations to food to keepsakes.

Toothpick Flag Wreath~ This is perfect for toddlers to help out with- all you need is a hollow Styrofoam circle, then stick in the flag toothpicks until it looks fluffy. Who knew toothpicks could be so decorative? Thanks to The Picky Apple for this awesome idea.

Painted Star Backyard~ Transform your backyard into a field of patriotic stars with this idea by The Concrete Cottage. After a little rain, the paint will fade.

Rice Candles~ Putting this patriotic Memorial Day decor together could not be easier than with this project by Today’s Creative Blog. Simply dye rice red and blue with food coloring, then layer the colors around a candle in a jar of your choice.

Flags in a Jar~ Layer JELL-O and fruit to create these adorable flags in a jar from Green Acres Hobby Farm. They look so festive, and taste great too!

Flag Cake~ If you’re feeling super ambitious, try baking a Hidden Flag Cake, which is made with a layer of red cake, a layer of white frosting, and a blue cake center so when sliced, everyone is served a perfect flag.

Most of us are looking forward to summer and spending more time with our kids but the lack of schedule can sometimes make it hard to organize your time. For me, I want to make sure our days aren’t so full of activities and events that we miss needed time to stop, relax and just enjoy being together.

Plus, it is also important to teach my little ones how to be creative when they are bored and how to appreciate discovering adventure in our own backyard and the use their imaginations. Above all, I just want to cherish these summer moments and enjoy this precious time as a family before the school year starts back up!

So here’s a fun idea to create a Summer bucket list with your family. Everyone can contribute, no matter their age and if you knock everything off your list by August, you are sure to have had a great off season! These are a few of the ideas my family came up with to get your started:

  • Visit the summer display at the library to check out new books and read throughout the summer
  • Make homemade playdoh
  • Roast marshmallows
  • Run through the sprinklers
  • Go to a baseball game 
  • Rest and relax at home
  • Go to the water park
  • Visit Daddy’s office and have lunch with him
  • Make ice cream at home
  • Go to the zoo

cruise deals

 

Are you looking to book a cruise?  If so, here are a couple of deals you can sink your teeth into.  Of course, competitive pricing is important when booking a cruise, but you need to think about the “value-added” to when buying a cruise for the family as often that takes all the “extraneous spending” out of the budget.

Barb Elliott Shelton, is a reader of MyDFWMommy! (Tell her we sent you and she will do her best to get you the BEST deal available for your money!)  Her job is to find the best pricing available and then she tries to get the “value add-ons”.  Here are some good deals you can take advantage of.

1 WEEK Only Sale ~  reduced deposits and onboard credit.  This is combinable with the May promotion that has 60% off 2nd passengers and 30% off 3rd/4thpassengers.  Plus if you mention Laura, you will get a choice of wine or cupcakes, plus get double the onboard credit for 4 days.
