Memorial Day or Veterans Day Ideas: We Salute You!

It’s so important for your children’s ministry classroom to celebrate Memorial Day or Veterans Day. By remembering these holidays, you’re not only saying thank-you to those who have served, but you’re always teaching your students about God’s sacrificial love. These four simple, but impactful ideas, are a great way for your class to show their appreciation and say thank you to our military personnel for Memorial Day or Veterans Day.


4 Simple Ideas for Memorial Day or Veterans Day

1. Thank You

Collect photos of the youngest generation in your family. Then create a collage of these little faces and write across the bottom: “Thank you for ensuring the safety of the littlest generation!”

2. Breakfast of Champions

Invite veterans in your church and family to your home for a delicious brunch in their honor.

3. Memory Box

Decorate a sturdy cardboard box that has a removable lid with military decorations. Give the box as a gift for your treasured veteran to store memorabilia.

4. My Hero

Along with your children, make a list of all the reasons you respect and honor your veteran. Mail the letter, or present it in person.

    Can’t wait to get started. My husband is the pastor of a very small church. There was only 1 child when we came, and that was only 1 weekend a month. We started a diaper ministry where we give free diapers and wipes and our little church is thriving. Our net ministry – to begin a children’s program. Thank you offering these for free, and God bless you!
