A Veteran’s Day Activity

by This is Carrie on November 10, 2009

I’m loving my new calling at church: planning bi-monthly activities for girls ages 8-11.
Our first activity together?
Writing letters to soldiers and veterans and boxing up all the candy for Operation Gratitude.

Hi Carrie! What a great idea! I too am Activity Days in our ward. Is it not the best calling?!

What a great Veteran's Day activity for the kids. We're definitely putting this on our to do list. Maybe I can convince them to contribute some of their Halloween candy too. Thanks for the tip.

I love that idea! I'm working with the 8 year old scouts…this would be a prefect project for them, totally worthwhile and they would love doing it. Thanks for posting this….you always have the best ideas.

Seeing people want to continue to do this type of activity is so wonderful. As an Army spouse it means a lot that our soldiers serving over seas and those who have fulfilled their Military duty are not forgotten. Please remember to include our Wounded Warriors as well. Kind words and thoughts help them to continue their road to recovery.

This is such an amazing idea! I want our girls to always remember our freedoms and how they got them-by those brave enough to fight for them! I LOVE this idea for our Fourth of July activity!

Question though: where did you put the return address?
