Veterans Day often feels like a heavy holiday, thick with the air of loss and sadness felt for those who have given their lives to protect and serve the country. However, there are plenty of surviving veterans to salute, and the day should be one of pride and joy regarding the fact that there have been so many willing to put their lives on the line for the well being of the population. In fact, some themed holiday crafts can really help us commemorate the spirit of the holiday.
One Veterans Day craft that can be fulfilling and enjoyable is to create homemade thank you cards that can be handed out at veterans retirement facilities, perhaps with small cellophane bags of candy attached. Often, many of these older veterans don't have a lot of family and friends left to visit them in their facilities, and just paying the visit can be a great uplifting offering. How much more so it would be to hand out cards into which you poured the labor of love to these dedicated individuals!
Another craft you can attempt for Veterans Day is to put together homemade ribbons that resemble awards won for special achievements that can be given to veterans or, if permitted by the facility, put on every gravestone in a veterans’ cemetery. Imagine the look on relatives’ faces when they visit their loved one's grave and find an anonymous homemade ribbon of thanks for the service provided to the country! With these kinds of crafts, you can really uplift individuals on Veterans Day, a day when many tend to feel down.
