Remembrance Day or ANZAC Day is a memorial day It’s a day that recognises all the members of the armed force who died in a line of duty since World War 1. The blood red poppies are a significant symbol of this day as they were the first flower to grow from the battle fields and graves of soldiers.
The concept of war can be incredibly heavy for kids and difficult for them to comprehend, adults included, but the poppy can be a great place to start. Here I share 11 simple poppy crafts for kids to make.
