Veterans Day Gift

Veterans Day is a good day to show appreciation and respect for our American heroes.
This beautiful Veterans Day Keepsake Craft Box is a great way to start a conversation about veterans, heroes, soldiers, America, history, war, protection, respect, remembrance, and appreciation.
  • What is a veteran?
  • Do you know a veteran?
  • Why do we need an army?
  • How is an army different than a police force?
  • Would you want to be in the armed forces?  Why or why not?
  • What makes someone a hero?  Can a child be a hero?
  • How is America different from other countries?  How is it the same?
  • What would you say to a veteran?
  • How can you show you appreciate a veteran?

It also makes a thoughtful gift to a veteran.  Kids can leave the top open, to store a veteran’s keepsakes.  This makes a sturdy and handy box for practical items, too.

One teacher wrote:

“Just exactly what I was looking for. My children are putting paper mache hearts inside and giving them to veterans at a local hospital. Thank you.”

I wish I could see those hearts, and the looks on those veterans’ faces.

To our all veterans, including my father, a heartfelt thank you for your service to our country.  Your service is a gift to all of us.  Here's a gift for you.
