Kids celebrate Veterans Day with arts and crafts

By  | 

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - The North Platte Area Children's Museum held a "Veterans Day Celebration" on Saturday. Kids were given a chance to say thank you to our troops by making fun arts and crafts.

Children colored together and enjoyed treats for a good cause. The kid's art will be placed in an Armed Forces package that will be sent to active service men and women overseas.

Parents say they are happy to see their kids making an impact. Parent and board member Stacey Dawkins said, "My husband's a veteran of the army and it's heartwarming to see the community and the children coming together to honor and thank the veterans, as well as active military overseas."

The museum will be sending the care packages out Monday.
