After the noise and expense of Halloween and Bonfire Night I look forward to the quiet contemplation of Remembrance Day. It’s not hugely commercial, nor should it be. Remembrance Day is a time to reflect on the sacrifice of the past and I am so proud to remember the contribution my Great Uncle made during the First World War. You can read about him over on my family history blog.
I’ve been using Twinkl for a while as they have great resources which I can use with my children. We’ve started a great habit of sitting around the dining table after school and talking. Sometimes my 6 year old has homework to do but I usually have a few activities for us to do together.
Remembrance Day Paper Poppy craft for children
With Remembrance Day coming up this Sunday I wanted to talk about it with them. I found some great resources including a paper poppy to cut out which my 4 year old enjoyed.
Her cutting skills are good and she was able to cut it out herself. I helped her fold it and stick it together. It was the perfect after school activity and made a really lovely poppy.
I’m ashamed to say that I don’t have many other Remembrance Day crafts for children on my blog. A few years ago we made paper plate poppies and tiny finger print poppies. Next year I will have to try harder!
