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!
