Gorgeous DIY Poppy Suncatchers for Preschoolers and older kids. A great Remembrance Day Activity, that looks beautiful too. We love Poppy Crafts for kids.

I think it's because they are still so young. Despite that I try to make a point each year to talk about Remembrance Day and the Soldiers we are remembering.

Memorial Day Poppies
My search for a suitable Memorial Day craft on the Web yielded nothing. Oh, there is a galore of fantastic ideas, but somehow none of them looked appealing enough to try to make with a bunch of 4-to-9-year-olds. That is the age range in my Sunday School class at the moment. So, I rolled up my sleeves and came up with this simple picture that involves just coloring and pasting, and following instructions. For my class, I will prepare all the poppy pieces, so all that is left for the little…
