Time for a Timeline

Whether someone you love is deployed or not, this is always a fun project. Take a long piece of butcher paper or small pieces of plain paper (about 12) and put them on a wall, side by side. Then draw a line horizontally (side to side) across all of the paper. At the beginning write the month; keep writing the names of all the months across the line left to right making sure there is the same amount of space between each month. You can make a timeline for a whole year, for the length of a deployment, or you can do it month to month. Then whenever something interesting happens make a mark by the right month including the date and the interesting information. You can even tape photos or draw a picture of an event or special time.

Name Games

Write down the name of the person who is deployed on a piece of paper like this (one letter per line):

M

A

T

T

H

E

W

Then write down something that describes the person starting with the letter on each line like this:

Magical

Awesome

Trickster

Truthful

Helpful

Everybody’s friend

Wise

Use bright colored markers or pens for a special touch. Hang it in your room as a reminder of the great things you love and miss about the person. Or mail it to the person and let them know about all those things you miss!




Lighten Up!

Jokes are a good way to make someone smile. Send your deployed person some of these jokes, other ones you know, or make some up!

Knock, knock
Who’s there
Boo
Boo Who
Don’t cry, it’s only a joke

What did the boy octopus say to the girl octopus?
I want to hold your hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand.

What has four wheels and flies?
A garbage truck.

Homemade Postcards

Design your own postcards. Ask an adult to buy you white cardstock or find thin cardboard. Cut it into the shape of a postcard. You can either glue a photo on or create your own design. For best results use markers or paints. Your loved one will be very impressed with your custom made postcards!

You can also have fun with boxes you have around the house. A Hostess Ho Ho box can make a fun holiday card "Ho Ho Ho!" Or cut out the side of an empty decorative tissue box. Write your message and the address on the blank side.
