As my kids are getting older (4, 6 & 8), I look for new ways to teach them about holidays like Veteran’s Day. I don’t want them to get used to having these “days off” without understanding the meaning behind why they are celebrated. We started talking about what it means to be a Veteran and the fact that their father is a Veteran of the US Army. Happy Veteran’s Day and thank you to all of the Veterans out there for your service.
I always look to Pinterest for craft ideas for various homeschool projects. So here are 4 super easy Veteran’s Day crafts for kids that I will be trying out with my own children.
I love this easy craft from Fantastic Fun & Learning. This is super easy, and I know my kids will enjoy doing it. I also loved the fact that Shaunna read a story and discussed it about Hero Dad before doing the project with her kids.
Paint is always something we have on hand. So what better way to mix a timeless hand print with the American flag? I love this easy craft by Krissy of B-InspiredMama.
I absolutely adore this FREE 20-page activity packet for the kids. It breaks down all of the different branches of the military, and lots of coloring activities. This packet from Monica of Happy and Blessed Home is an absolute must for younger kids. Click here to download your free packet.
I really love this idea to make and send out Christmas cards to those in the armed forces. And this simple craft from Alisha of Makeovers And Motherhood, is absolutely adorable. I know my kids will enjoy this project. Click here for full details.
