Getting Ready for a Move

A big part of being a military kid is moving over and over again. Some kids think this is exciting and interesting; some kids hate it. Most kids think both things at different times. The good thing is that military kids get to have experiences no other kids get to have and will always have special memories. Learn more about moving as a military kid. You'll find lots of information so you are ready for your move.

Wacky Grownups!

If you’re a kid you know that sometimes grown-ups act a little wacky. Sometimes it’s hard to tell why and it can be frustrating. When someone important to your family is deployed, grown ups have a lot of mixed-up feelings, just like you. Maybe they are tired, worried, angry or lonely. It is important to remember that none of it is your fault. If you are feeling like the grown ups in your house are acting nuts there are a few things you can do:

>Tell them how you feel

>Tell them you love them

>Do an art project together

>Clean your room

>Write them a letter or poem


Got the Munchies?

Try these Cracker Cookies:

Ingredients
1 – 2 boxes Wheat Thins
1 large jar of creamy peanut butter
2-3 bags chocolate candy melts or almond bark (can find at Michael’s)

Make peanut butter sandwiches with the Wheat Thins. Have an adult help you melt the chocolate according to the package instructions. Set out a piece of wax paper. Dunk the sandwiches into the chocolate and set them on the wax paper to cool. When they are cool they are ready to eat. YUM!



Honoring Veterans

Many of our deployed family members are coming home as veterans. Maybe you are wondering what this means. Go to www.va.gov/kids/ and learn all about it. You should be proud of your veteran, because that person is very brave. There are veterans who are young and veterans that are old. It is important that we remember veterans and show them respect and kindness whenever we can. We even have a special day for veterans in America, November 11. Kids at your school may want to learn more about veterans and ways to show your respect. You can share ideas from the website or come up with some ideas of your own.


Pesky Questions

When other kids find out you’re a military kid and that you know someone who is deployed, they might ask some pesky questions. They don’t mean to be pesky, they are just curious.

Here are some ideas for how to how to handle the questions:

> Be proud of your loved one and what serving this great country means to you and your family. Say "I'm proud!"
> If you don't want to talk about it, say so.
> If they ask hard questions about war or people being hurt, tell them to ask their parents or the teacher.
