Who else loves three-day weekends!? There is nothing quite like Memorial Day weekend that screams HELLO SUMMER! :) How are you Making Time Together this weekend?
Today, we're sharing a round-up of some of our favorite family Memorial Day activities. If you're looking for a few activities to keep the kids busy this weekend, then keep on reading!
LEGO® American Flag Challenge: Challenge your kids to build an American flag out of their LEGO® collection. Once it's built, teach them about what the flag symbolizes. This blog post has some amazing kid-friendly facts and lessons about American history that is perfect for teaching this weekend.
Patriotic Rock Painting: This activity could not be easier ... and that's the main reason we love it. Send the kids out back to grab some rocks, grab blue, white and red paints, some brushes and let the loose! Let the kids paint the rocks to the heart's content ... we guarantee it'll keep them busy for a little while so you can get things done - or relax!
Say Thank You to Our Veterans: This is the whole reason we celebrate Veterans Day! We love this list of ways that you can actively teach your kids the importance of Memorial Day and engage them in saying thank you to our veterans.
Painted Lawn Stars: There is nothing more patriotic than painting red, white and blue stars ALL over your lawn! We LOVE this fun, creative idea from The Concrete Cottage. All you need is a star stencil, some spray paint and some kids willing to help and you'll have the most festive lawn in town.
Play OUTSIDE!: Set up the sprinkler, play musical chairs to patriotic music, go on a nature walk, have a picnic, roast s'mores on a campfire ... it doesn't really matter what you do, but get outside and build those memories!

Learning about symmetry is way more fun when you get to play with building bricks, especially our Pixel Bricks™! We are sharing a really fun and hands-on way to learn an early Math concept through an invitation to decorate butterfly wings.
Here are a few of our favorite April Fool's Day prank ideas we've done to our kids over the years. Most of which are last minute ideas (cause that's how we roll)!
Creative QT® co-owner, Adam Hinkle, lovingly refers toPixel Bricks™ as 'LEGO™ glitter' because they do seem to have a way of finding their way all over the floor if not properly stored. The good news is, however, we have loads of simple and affordable ways to store them all in this one blog.
