ANZAC Day – 25th April

untitled

Next Thursday 25th April we celebrate ANZAC day.

According to the Australian War Memorial, “ANZAC Day – 25 April – is probably Australia’s most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.”

The kidlets always do activities at school (past teacher experience) to learn about this and we have a national holiday on that day. A tradition we started in our family is to make ANZAC biscuits on ANZAC day. I am going to make it as a slice this year.

I have also been looking for some other resources online to have some fun with the kidlets. Check out my pinterest board for some ideas I have found so far. Click on the picture below to take you there.

Gabbylocks has said that she wants to march this year so I will be taking her to the March on Thursday morning.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who grieve and remember lost ones on this remembrance day.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
 Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
 At the going down of the sun and in the morning
 We will remember them.
