11 poppy crafts, art or food for remembrance day

Remembrance Sunday seems to have jumped up on me this year.  I think due to having half term a week late.  I love to use the time that we craft as a family to talk about things and making poppy crafts with the boys always gives me the opportunity to discuss the need for remembrance day and this year has even more significance after our visit to the site of the Armistice over the summer.

Heather @ Bury Family Life » I think it is great to talk about the event whilst doing something, it helps it seem more real for children. Makes it tangible as it seems so long ago for them.
