Memorial Day

For many families, Memorial Day weekend is just a holiday to herald the arrival of summer. But, as we all know, behind it all is a commemorative day for honoring the men and women who have served the country. It’s important to never forget the holiday’s true meaning, and it can start with honoring Memorial Day with our kids.

Memorial Day

Whether you are at home in Irvine, California, live in Scottsdale, Arizona or reside in Tampa, Florida, there are a lot of ways to use this holiday to teach our children about the role of the brave and dedicated men and women who serve in the military. Here are some ways we at Taylor Morrison will be giving the day meaning with our children: shares some kid-friendly patriotic crafts projects, perfect for preschoolers through elementary school children.

Go online with the kids to visit The National Gold Star Family Registry, where you can read and write tributes to someone who died defending our freedom.

Through Battalion Buddies, send a stuffed animal to a child whose mom or dad is about to be deployed.

Find out more about a local war memorial and honor the fallen with a visit.
