Pinwheel Poppies – A Remembrance, Armistice or Veteran’s day activity 23

Both my boys take part in the annual remembrance parade as Cubs and this year it is the 100 anniversary of the start of World War One.  This has really captured the boys imagination, so we made Poppy Pinwheels. Remembrance Day, Armistice Day or Veteran’s Day as it is sometimes called is November 11th. Materials: Red paper Brass Paper Fasteners Black Sharpie Green Paper straws Hole punch 1/8 inch Pinwheel Poppy Template  How to make a pinwheel poppy


Melted wax poppy craft, a remembrance day activity 15

Here’s an easy poppy craft, which is a great Remembrance Day activity for children. We have made a display of poppies and a paper plate poppy wreath, but you can use the same technique to make a poppy brooch by added a pin on the rear or a display of poppies for your home, church or school.  The mini mad’s will be taking the poppies to my mum’s grave in remembrance of her. These poppies were inspired by the fab wax paper flowers at Homegrown Friends. How to make melted wax poppies with Kids
