Crafts, Books, and Recipes for Memorial Day

Are you celebrating Memorial Day today? A few years ago, I shared this fun collection of crafts and recipes for the holiday. So I thought I'd do the same today. Here are a few ideas that we love from around the web:


Easy Decorations for Your Kids to Make
Patriotic Pinwheels - Love these super cute pinwheels from Kinser Event Company. They're great as both table decorations and toys for keeping the kids busy!

American Flag coasters - Technically, these are just puzzles made from craft sticks, but I think if you brace them by gluing them to additional craft sticks on the bottom, they would make great coasters!

Patriotic Luminarias - Aren't these tissue paper luminaries great? Use electric votive candles to be extra safe!


Yummy Recipes to Make with Your Kids

Roasted Poblano Cheddar Cheese Burger - My mouth began instantly salivating the moment I saw this recipe on Sweet Life Bake.

Steak Fajitas with Grilled Onions, Peppers, and Roasted Cherry Tomatoes with Chimichurri Sauce - Oy!! Why not fire up the grill? These steak fajitas on Muy Bueno Cookbook are making my mouth water. Have your older kids help prepare all the ingredients.

Berry Pavlova - Presley's Pantry has a colorful and super yummy dessert for you. And what kid doesn't like to help make dessert?

Paletas de fresas con crema - From my favorite food blog, The Other Side of the Tortilla, comes this easy recipe that may be more your kid's style.

Then wash it all down with...

Agua Fresca: Agua de Tuna Roja - Agua frescas come in a variety of flavors. This is not an easy phrase to translate; literally it means "fresh water" but I prefer to translate it as "refreshing waters." They are tasty, light, and easily quench your thirst. They are one of my favorite things about summer...and one of my kids' favorites, too! And this recipe from The Other Side of the Tortilla looks incredible!


Books

Don't forget to sit down and read...

Good Night Captain Mama/Buenas noches Capitan Mama (affiliate link) by Graciela Tiscareno-Sato and Linda Lens to remember Latino veterans!
Con mucho cariño...
