Veterans Day, November 11th of each year, is a federal holiday in the United States to honor all those who have served in the U.S. Military.

Take time today to talk with your kids about the United States armed services and ways to honor these community and national heroes.

Here are some ideas to celebrate Veterans Day:

  • Teach your children about the history of Veterans Day by having them create a time line of events leading to the observance of the holiday
  • Have you kids write short articles or essays of how veterans are honored around the world. And if you know any veterans locally, propose that you kids interview them about what it’s like to serve in the U.S. Military
