In honor of Memorial Day this weekend, we wanted a project for the kids to do that would bless Veterans. It was very simple, fun for the kids, and turned out really sweet.
Print the "Dear Veterans" template - click here to download the google doc
Use a paper cutter to cut into 4 postcard sized letters
Punch two holes along the right side of the "Dear Veterans" side
Have the kids sign their names and their ages on the letter
On the blank side, have the kids sketch a flag with the rectangle in the upper left corner, and then the stripes.
Color the rectangle blue, and stripes red and white
We had stickers for them to apply to the rectangle
Thread the straw through the holes in order to complete the "Flag"
Beaded Saftey Pin How To:
Have the kids thread red, white and blue beads onto safety pins, and then pin to the front of the letter.
Mail or deliver to Veterans you know!
