April is Month of the Military Child!

April 5, 2010 | Categrory: kids and deployment, military families, military kids, resources for military families

This month the focus is on the kids! Here are some ideas of things you can do to celebrate!

Take those kids out for ice cream!

Take a spring walk or bike ride, and don’t forget to take pictures to share with a deployed parent.

A celebration picnic could be fun!

http://soldiersangels.org/gift-for-month-of-the-miltary-child.html go to this link for a free gift (while they last) of a bracelet of dog tags to those children who have a parent that has served in O.I. F. or O.E.F.

Send some We Serve Too! books to your local base as a gift for a class or FRG group of children, or give one to your local library.

Invite the military kids you know who have a deployed parent to a movie or other activity ( this actually makes it Military mom’s day)

Whatever you decide to do, with your own family or for a Military family, remember that the kids do serve too. They are making a sacrifice of missing a parent who defends this nation. To all you Military kids out there, thank you for your sacrifice , and Stay Brave!
