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.
