Memorial Day was traditionally held on the 30th of May. In 1971, Congress changed it to the last Monday in order to afford a three day holiday weekend.

Celebrate this day by going to a parade, visiting a cemetery to honor and remember our servicemen, having a family picnic...

Patriotic Wind Socks

Make a patriotic wind sock from an oatmeal box, paper, string, and streamers
What You'll Need:
  • oatmeal box
  • paper or duct tape
  • string
  • streamers or ribbon

How To Make:

1. Cut the bottom off a cylindrical oatmeal box.

2. Cover the box with blue paper or blue duct tape.

3. Glue on white stars made from paper or craft foam.

4. Cut red and white streamers or ribbon and glue or staple them onto one end of the wind sock.

5. Punch 4 holes along the top of the wind sock.

6. Cut two pieces of string about a foot long. Tie the strings to the wind sock (tie the opposite ends of a string to holes on opposite sides of the cylinder). Tie a longer piece of string to the smaller pieces - you'll hang the wind sock from this piece of string. Hang your patriotic wind sock from your window or porch.
