Free Veteran's Day Coloring Pages
Veteran's Day is a federal holiday celebrated in the United States on November 11th, which honors military veterans who served in the armed forces. You may have heard of other countries celebrating the end of World War 1 with Armistice Day and Remembrance Day. Whichever holiday you observe, it's important to honor the brave men and women who fought for your country.
For this collection, we illustrated different scenes of service members, brave soldiers in uniforms, the American Flag, and medals of honor. We also have coloring pages with quotes expressing our appreciation and support for our veterans.
While we designed many of these printable coloring sheets for kids of all ages, we've also included some advanced Veteran's Day pictures for adults too.
Print some to use in social studies classes to teach little learners about Veteran's Day. Or, turn them into printable cards to color and include in care packages for family members who have served in the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Corps, or Coast Guard.
