An Easy Way to Enjoy Memorial Day with Kids
If you’re looking for a print-and-go way to celebrate Memorial Day with kids, this free word search is a wonderful choice. It’s an easy and excellent way to boost your holiday celebration.
Memorial Day (the last Monday of May in the United States) is a magnificent time of year. The days are longer and the weather is usually warm. If you’re still in school (or homeschool), you typically get long holiday weekend.
Over the years, I’ve had each of my boys ask me about Memorial Day – what it is and why we celebrate it as a national holiday. When my youngest recently asked me about this holiday, I knew that I wanted a simple printable activity, like a word search, to kick off our conversation and learning fun.
That’s why I’ve created and shared this free printable Memorial Day word search!
