Memorial Day is a time for us to get together with our family and usually spend some time outside. We usually have a family cookout and I’m always looking for new Memorial Day recipes to take along with us. A side dish or dessert is usually what J and I take along so I have been scouting out some great sweet treats for this year!
But my sister-in-law is also a pro at making the dinner table look so festive. So this year, I wanted to find some great crafts that the kids could all do to help her decorate and to help make the party even more festive. I’ve gathered a small collection of some of my favorites to share!
