We are privileged to reside in a nation where such valiant people are prepared to protect and defend us. 💚
Puttisu would like to express our gratitude to all the veterans who have served our nation on Veterans Day. We are extremely appreciative of everything you've done for us. 🙏 🙏🏿 🙏🏽
This coming Veterans Day, it's important that we, as parents, teach our children about the significance of this holiday. It is a chance to learn more than just what you might find on a driver's License or in school books. It's also recognition day, where Americans celebrate their veterans who have served our country with distinction!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. #Vete #ThankYouVeterans #veteranday
We must remember this date. And teach the next generation the importance of our veterans and why we show our gratitude.
Here are 10 ways you can enjoy a child-friendly veterans day.
1. Have a picnic lunch.
Pack a picnic lunch and head to your local park to celebrate Veterans Day with your kids. Be sure to bring some American flags to decorate your picnic blanket! You can also use this time to educate your children about the importance of Veterans Day and what it means to be a veteran.
Remember to protect the family with sunscreen, remembering our very own designed especially for that delicate skin.
2. Make patriotic crafts.
There are tons of patriotic crafts that you can do with your kids to celebrate Veterans Day. You can make American flag banners, handprint eagles, or even paper plate medals. These crafts are not only fun for your kids, but they're also great for festively decorating your home.
3. Have a backyard barbecue.
Nothing says "American" like a backyard barbecue! Fire up the grill and invite some of your child's friends over for a Veterans Day celebration. You can even create a patriotic playlist to get everyone in the celebratory mood.
4. Go see a parade.
Many towns and cities host Veterans Day parades each year. This is a marvelous way to get your children out of the house and involved in the holiday festivities. Plus, they'll get to see all sorts of patriotic floats and marching bands!
5. Bake some red, white, and blue treats.
Baking is always fun with kids, and it's especially festive when you make patriotic-themed treats! You can bake American flag cakes, cupcakes decorated with stars and stripes, or even Fourth of July cookies shaped like fireworks.
6. Have a bake sale.
Now you have created the red, white, and blue goodies. Why not raise some funds? This is a fun way to raise money for veteran organizations such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) or the American Legion.
7. Make cards or write letters.
If you have any veterans in your family, this is a beautiful way to show appreciation for their service. You can also make cards or write letters to be sent to veterans who are currently serving overseas. One of Puttisu's favorite ideas.
8. Plant a tree.
This is a perfect way to teach kids about the importance of caring for our planet. Plus, it's an excellent way to commemorate veterans who have served our country.
9. Visit a local museum or monument.
Visit a local museum this Veterans Day to learn more about our country's history and the sacrifices made by those who have served in the military.
10. Fly the flag at half-mast to honor those who have lost their lives while serving.
