Remembrance Day Activities

Remembrance Day Activities

Here's a few simple crafts that should be good for all age groups, to celebrate Rememberance Day.

Heart poppies

Basic poppy craft, easy for all ages. The basis for the majority of the crafts we do for our Remembrance Day theme.

Materials:

  • Red construction paper
  • Black/green construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Trace a heart onto red construction paper. Each child will need 4 hearts. When the hearts are joined in the middle they create the “petals” us a green/black circle to cover the connection point.

Felt poppies

Our school-agers make these poppies. Felt is harder to cut then paper and the result is a more realistic poppy for them to wear.

Materials:

  • Red felt
  • Black/green felt
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Safety pin

Instructions as above, glue a safety pin to the back of the poppy to wear.

Poppy Wreaths

Materials:

  • Same as heart poppies
  • Cardboard circle

Create a number of heart poppies as above and glue onto a cardboard circle to create a class wreath.

Cross and Poppy

Materials:

  • Same as heart poppies
  • Cardboard
  • White paint

Trace and cut out a cross shape from cardboard. Paint white. When dry, glue a heart poppy on the cross.

Peace Dove

We have had difficulty finding Remembrance Day crafts in the past to last an entire week. Over the years we have shifted to add a peace element to our Remembrance Day weekly theme. We make Peace Doves to hang from the ceiling. 30+ doves hanging from the ceiling of the classroom can make quite the impression!

Materials:

  • White construction paper or card stock
  • White computer paper
  • Scissors

Enchanted Learning has a craft almost identical to the one we’ve been doing the past few years. Their instructions are very clear and detailed pictures show where cuts should be made.
