Happy Veterans Day: Honoring All Who Served by Making Art

But guess who else is very grateful? Kids! In most elementary schools, to commemorate this special day, teachers have talked to kids about those who dedicate their lives to protecting America’s freedom. What can a second grader to to show his appreciation for a soldier? What would put a smile on a soldier’s face?

We think you know where this is going:

Personally, I think that teaching the importance of something as important as respecting veterans would be very, very difficult. Year after year, however, teachers nail covering this serious topic through a fun activity. Here are a few more arts and crafts that made our patriotic hearts swell:

We hope that any veterans that might have stumbled across this post would have been able to feel the appreciation that we feel for you; it’s clear that the American public school system is teaching their kids to do the same! We hope that this has put a smile on your face (if not for any reason than sheer adorability), and that you all have a wonderful day!
