A Military Families’ Activity Book
A guide to help your family remember no matter where you are, you can learn from one another and appreciate your differences and similarities.
Print this guide and, together with children, enjoy the journey! As you share these pages together, point out that no matter where we are, we can learn from one another and appreciate our differences and similarities.
As you sit with your child, you might also think about your own family’s life. The military life is not an easy one, and as challenging conversations abound, you can also take time for self-care. Caring for one another in big and little ways keeps you connected. Going on walks, having dance parties, and making space and time to share feelings are a few examples of what you can incorporate into your family time daily, weekly, or monthly.
Children naturally notice differences. Starting in our own homes, we can help them continue to recognize and celebrate the diversity all around us.
