Happy Memorial Day

Welcome! New to ABC and 123? Please check out our FAQ in the sidebar.

Today is Memorial Day in the United States of America. It is the day when Americans remember those who have lost their lives while serving our country in uniform and honor those who gave "the last full measure of devotion."

We thought that it would also be a good time to share the recent patriotic themed submissions we've gotten. They were done in honor of upcoming Flag Day in the US, which commemorates the adoption of our national flag, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in June 14, 1777. We also think they are very appropriate for Memorial Day, they'd be great to have to wave while at a Memorial Day parade.

Superheros and Princesses did an activity comparing and contrasting the different versions of the American Flag.

At A Cookie Cutter Diva's Life they made two flag inspired crafts. One on day they finger painted flags and on another they made them out of craft sticks.

What does your family do to honor those who have fallen in defense of our country?
