Remembrance Day Craft For Toddlers
We love to do something special for each and every holiday and Remembrance Day is so important to us as a community it just made sense to create a unique piece that can be taken home and enjoyed year after year!
I like to make crafts that can displayed and kept year after year so this year we made cute grave marker crosses and poppies. The kids didn’t quite understand the project but that is ok they have plenty of time to learn about our fallen heroes when they are older. I simply explained that grandmas and grandpas who are no longer with us or lived a long time ago needed a special day to remember things they did years ago.
To create our cross I cut out cardboard into evenly sized strips, added some tape and glue and had the kids paint them in a pretty silver colour.
After that we created our poppies from cupcake wrappers.
Then we waited for our cross to dry and printed out a soldier taking a knee next to one of his fallen companions.
We glued the soldier and the poppies to the cross and the project was complete! I think they turned out beautiful!
