Happy Veteran’s Day!
Today I’m sharing some ideas about how to say thank you to those who sacrifice the most for us.
We passed out envelopes with the cards, pre-cut blue rectangles, and red strips of paper, and included some inexpensive foil star stickers with each card. For this one, I added a “thank you” on the bottom corner with this stamp (from Stampin Up). This design is really basic. If you pre-cut the strips of paper, this is a project you could do even with young children. They would love to add the stickers! Let them draw a picture or write their own message inside the card.
And to make the thank you a little Sweeter, we prepared rolls of Lifesavers with specially-designed labels to give to the sailors.
These cards and/or Lifesaver gifts could be great way to recognize anyone who sacrifices to serve and protect (or even babysit? :-)). You might drop some off at your local Fire or Police stations. Maybe you could celebrate Veterans Day by making some and and taking them to the local VA. I think sometimes a heartfelt thank you is the best service we can give!
