|Veterans Day Art - American Eagle Handprints|
|We did a mural of the 5 branches of the military and their seals. Some cute coloring pages we found HERE.|
I believe it is important. I like to have the kids learn about what the 5 branches of the military do for us. And that they work and sacrifice much to keep us safe from harm.

|Some of the writing we did for Veterans Day.|
We start by reading this book by Jill Biden called Don't Forget, God Bless Our Troops at the rug and have a short discussion about people in our family tree who have served in the military and what a sacrifice it sometimes is.

Then we did some fun hand print art to make American Eagles in small groups while the rest of us started our short essay on Veterans. The goal was to give REASONS why Veterans are great! We used information that we learned from the books, Youtubes or the kids sharing in our discussions.
Check out last year's activities we did for Veterans Day!

|My nephew Tyler posted this on Facebook when he was in the Army Boot Camp.....I loved it!|
I am the daughter of a U.S. Marine who served in 2 wars for 8 years and is buried in a military cemetary in Southern California. I think of him often and am proud of him for his military service. We honor all Veterans on this special U.S. annual holiday.
|I got this book for $6.00 and free shipping on Amazon and it's a HARDBACK! Woo Hoo! I read is called H is for HONOR. It gives kids an education on lots of different things in the military.|
|We used Handprints to make an American Eagle (and added glitter of course!)|
