Veterans Day Crafts, Projects, Worksheets, Books, and Printouts

November 11 is a day on which many people around the world honor those who served in the armed forces. It began as a celebration of the peace after World War I ended. This date was chosen because on November 11, 1918, an armistice (truce) was signed that ended World War 1.

In the USA, November 11 is called Veterans Day, and honors the men and women who served in the US Armed Forces. Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day. Armistice Day became an official US federal holiday in 1938. The holiday was renamed Veterans' Day in 1954, and became an official holiday honoring all US veterans. Veterans Day is observed on November 11 each year in the USA.

November 11 is called Armistice Day in many countries (including France, New Zealand, and others). In Canada, Australia, and the UK, November 11 is called Remembrance Day or Poppy Day (named after the red flower that bloomed so profusely on the bloody battlefields of Europe).

These Veterans Day crafts projects are for preschool, kindergarten and elementary school children.

The crafts use materials found around the house, like paper, cardboard, boxes, string, crayons, paint, glue, etc. See a page about color mixing to see how to combine paint to make all the colors of the rainbow.
