Visit a Cemetery
Have the children find a container and allow the child to use fresh, or fake flowers to make an arrangement to place on a headstone of a soldier or family member who had passed away that was a veteran or who had served in the military and had passed away. Explain that the military is a risk, and this is the reason that we appreciate people who have served for our country. This is a good time to explain the importance of remembering and recognizing these people. Use Small American flags to show patriotism in the flower arrangements or allow the arrangement to be accompanied by a note.
