Spring is full of holidays, and we aren’t through celebrating them yet! One of our favorite holidays to spend in Craig Ranch is Memorial Day weekend, coming up at the end of this month. With the kids out of school, it’s a good time for family get togethers. Here are four simple tips to ensure you’re making the most of Memorial Day weekend in McKinney, Texas!
1. Cookout in your Craig Ranch Home’s backyard
A great way to spend Memorial Day is with a traditional American backyard cookout, right at your own home! For extra delicious food, be sure to preheat your grill for at least 20 minutes before you start cooking. Still have food residue from the last time you grilled? No problem! Leftover food particles are much easier to remove when the grill is heated, so after you preheat it, simply scrape off any gunk with wire brush.
2. Create a Care Package with your kids
Another way to celebrate Memorial Day is to teach your children the significance of the holiday. One fantastic, fun and charitable way to do this is through sending a care pack to a solider. There are many websites dedicated to the cause that will help connect you with a solider overseas. Have the kids help you put the package together or give them paper and crayons to make a card the solider will love!
What better way is there to show appreciation for our country than getting outside and viewing it? Craig Ranch has numerous hike and bike trails that showcase the beauty of our state and our country. Get the family together for a little fitness walk, and then stop to have a picnic along the way.
Our master-planned community in McKinney, TX has a gorgeous Veterans Memorial Park located on a half-acre site in Van Tuyl Plaza. The park features a Wall of Honor with names of the Collin County servicemen and women who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Take a moment this Memorial Day to stop by and honor the heroes.
