Crafts for Remembrance Sunday

Have you recovered from Halloween yet? It seemed to go on for a while in our household but since then we’ve been busy with learning about Guy Fawkes and fireworks – edible fireworks snacks anyone? We’re also thinking ahead to Remembrance Sunday. According to The Royal British Legion website:

Remembrance Sunday, the second Sunday in November, is the day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. On this day people across the nation pause to reflect on the sacrifices made by our brave Service men and women. Remembrance Sunday will fall on Sunday 10 November in 2013.

It wasn’t too hard to find lots of different crafts for us to try out at home, in fact as most countries celebrate Remembrance Day, we were almost spoilt for choice.

For pre-schoolers how about finger print poppies or potato print poppies? We’ve tried both and my children enjoyed making them. What’s not to love about a sheet of blank paper and some paint? We also made poppies from paper plates with hand print leaves.

There are plenty of ideas for older children too. What about using red cupcake cases to make paper poppies or sewing some from felt? Take a look at my Remembrance Day crafts Pinterest board for more inspiration.
