Remembrance Day Poppy craft for children

There is lots to inspire us with our crafting lately. Everywhere we go we see poppies. Although the children are too young to understand the significance of Remembrance Sunday I don’t think they are too young to make their own contribution.

We thought we’d make our own poppies from paper plates. We painted them with red paint which my children loved. Little Sis loves to paint as much as her brother and makes *quite* a mess!

We left them to dry overnight. The next day we cut out two circles from black paper and also drew around their hands to make a leaf from green paper.

We then glued all the pieces together to make our poppies.
