How do you introduce ANZAC day to your children?
I've been wondering about how to talk about this with my little boy. Here are some ideas I've been reading about and a way to perhaps start a tradition of commemorating ANZAC day with children.
Go to the dawn service!
Watching a service on TV.
Visiting your local library or bookshop beforehand and borrow or buy some of the many books on war, Gallipoli or Anzac Day. Go to your local war memorial later in the day to see the wreaths that have been laid there and read the messages on them. Going to a local museum and looking at the military section.
Taking a personal approach - talking about stories within your own family, or perhaps finding another persons story to read.
