Memorial Day Desserts | One Sweet Way To Enjoy The Holiday With Your Kids

by Saturday, May 28, 2016

This Memorial Day, it is either that invitations are coming in for a cookout with friends and family, or we are the ones making the invitations ourselves. In the whole process, children are often left out to play and never really understanding the real meaning of Memorial Day.

Well, this weekend, try to spend it a little different. I mean there’s no stopping the party, but how about giving the little darlings some responsibility of preparing the Memorial Day Dessert selects? This way you can spend more time together and see how they work their way around in the kitchen. Here are our Memorial Day Dessert suggestions that are easy and fun to prepare, fit for you and your children.

Reflect The True Meaning Of Memorial Day As You Spend Time With The Kiddos While Cooking

One party we’re looking forward to this Memorial Day weekend is a lunch out with the whole pack at my parents’ place. With Memorial Day approaching, my little tuts are hovering me with questions about what it means and if anyone in the family became a part of the military or something.

I briefly shared with them about their great grandfather who fought and lived, but passed away before they were born. I shared how much of a kind person he was, his deep sense of dedication to the country, and how much he craved for sweet delights that my great grandmother never failed to prepare whenever he’s home.

My kids amazingly responded on how much they want to become a hero like him, and decided to make them our Memorial Day Desserts Heroes this year! I am sharing with you our mix list of no-cook dessert recipe choices and easy to bake cakes so you can be the sweet heroes for your party as well.

Here you go!
