Veteran’s Day is a day to show appreciation to those who have served in the armed forces. Not sure how you and your kids can show your gratitude?
1. Treat Them to a Day of Fun
Start with treating a veteran to a day of fun! There are a number of fun places to go, but how about taking them to a place where they can enjoy delicious pizza and awesome games—Chuck E. Cheese’s! This Veterans Day (11/11/2016) at Chuck E. Cheese’s, active and retired military members can enjoy a FREE individual 1-topping pizza with offer code 5258.
Military families can also enjoy deals year-round! Stop by with the kids and take advantage of one of the following 2 great offers:
The Alpha- Get a large 1-topping pizza, 4 drinks & 45 tokens for $26.99
The Bravo- Get 2 large 1-topping pizzas, 4 drinks & 100 tokens for $44.99
If you are unable to treat a veteran to a day of fun, here are three easy kid-friendly activities you and your family can do to thank a veteran this Veteran’s Day, and the other 364 days of the year!
2. Make a Card or Write a Letter
A simple activity for kids to show appreciation to a veteran or current military member, is writing them a letter or card! If you don’t personally know a veteran, you can send a letter to an organization that sends letters and care packages to veterans and active military members.
3. Donate Time or Money to a Veteran’s Charity
Paying it forward is another way to say thank you. Show your gratitude by volunteering as a family at an organization that helps veterans. You can visit this website, http://www.volunteer.va.gov/, to help you get started!
4. Simple Actions Do a World of Good
Show your patriotic pride and gratitude to those who have served by partaking in simple actions, like wearing a yellow ribbon or flying the American flag in your yard.
And of course, the simplest way of expressing your gratitude to a veteran is saying “thank you for your service.”
