Remembrance Day Crafts for Kids
Remembrance Day crafts are a creative way to include children in the honoring the sacrifices of members of the armed forces during times of war. Remembrance Day is celebrated on November 11 in many countries around the world. It is also called Poppy Day, Armistice Day and in the United States, Veterans Day. With a few basic supplies, children can make simple Remembrance Day crafts to display in their homes or to give as gifts.
Remove the center of a paper plate to create a round wreath shape by cutting it with scissors. Paint or color the paper plate wreath green. Glue synthetic poppies or other small, red silk flowers to the wreath. Tape a loop of ribbon on the back of the wreath to hang it.
Using red construction paper, cut out four small hearts for each poppy you plant to make. Cut a small circle from green construction paper for the center of the poppy. Glue the hearts to the circle with the points meeting in the middle. You can then glue the heart poppies together to create poppy wreaths, or use them to decorate cards and other items.
Handprint Remembrance Wreath
Using red finger paint, make eight handprints on white construction paper or card stock. After the prints have dried, cut them out. Glue the handprints together into a wreath. Decorate the wreath with bows, poppies or flag stickers.
