When site visitors were asked “How do you and your kids spend Memorial Day?” by Military.com writers, there’s a very good chance you also take the day to do the following: Hold a barbecue or picnic, go camping in the great outdoors, or attend a Memorial Day parade. But there are plenty of people who want to do more to salute brave warriors. They visit local cemeteries and war memorials. Some take books or baked goods to a loca1 VA hospital or retirement home to deliver TLC to patients and residents.
For some folks, going abroad and getting a chance to honor that nation’s citizens for their struggles to be free is an ideal way to build compassion in your kids and show them that the battles for independence that claim the lives of U.S. patriots also take place around the globe.
Make your Memorial Day escape meaningful and fun
By choosing Belize for your Memorial Day family vacation, you won’t have to sit on an airplane for very long, and since everyone speaks English, even your little ones will be able to converse with the people they meet. Choose Belizean Dreams Resort in Hopkins for your getaway, and you’ll be honored for your service, too.
Whether you’re a veteran or you are currently serving in any of the U.S. military services, you can take advantage of an exclusive offer that gives your family a 15% discount the resort’s most popular all inclusive packages: the Mayan Jungle and Beach option, the Just Chillin or the Honeymoon/ Romance package.
If you’re bringing the children, a great way to keep them occupied during the short flight is to print out a Medal of Honor coloring page before you leave home and pop some crayons into their backpacks for the flight. Load a child-appropriate film like the animated British movie Sgt Stubby: An Unlikely Hero or Bednobs and Broomsticks into your device so the kids are entertained en route to Belize, too.
