In honour of Remembrance Day today, Hannah, Ethan, and I made this poppy picture. Obviously,the kids are too young to understand much of what I said but I think it was a good activity anyway. I think it is important to remember the soldiers that fought for our freedom. So this is what we did:
|This is Hannah's finished work.|
|All we used were blue and green paper, glue, a sharpie, red paint, sponge bits, |
and finally some crosses cut out of white paper.
|First I cut the green paper to look like a soft hill and Hannah glued on the crosses.|
|Next, Hannah used the sponge (I rounded the end to give it a poppy shape) and the red paint to dab poppies all over the grass between the crosses.|
|Ethan did too. He moves so fast its hard to take a picture.|
|Finally, I used the sharpie to add black centers and glue it onto the blue sheet.|
