Veteran’s Day Activities for Kids 

Veterans Day is observed on November 11 each year. The observance preserves the historical significance of the date, World War I fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

This holiday helps focus attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

Here are a few activity ideas for your child to learn about Veterans Day and to also help them reach out to others around the world for this Holiday.

Celebrating Veterans Day with Kids

Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor ALL those who served honorably in the military – in wartime or peacetime. Today, look around your community to see how you can support your local Veterans.  

There are a few ways to just stop in the day and encourage you and your family to think of a way to express our gratitude to Veterans. Maybe it’s a simple hand-drawn card by your child that you hand-deliver or inviting a neighbor over who served in the military for dinner.

In the United States, it’s Veteran’s Day but in other parts of the world, it’s Remembrance Day and Armistice Day. I fondly thank and remember my Grandfather who was in the Marines serving during the World War II

Our gratitude goes to so many friends whose husbands have served in Afghanistan and Iraq and other places around the world over the past few years.

Your braveness and honor make each of us so ever so thankful and proud of you!
