Veteran's Day Crafts
November 11 is a day on which many people around the world honor those who died at war. 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. EnchantedLearning.com offers Veterans Day crafts, projects, worksheets, books, and printouts.
