Remembrance Day art activity

Hi everyone,

I wanted to share an art activity from Pinterest  that you can do at home with your children to mark Remembrance day  on November 11th and all the poppies children are seeing many of us wearing these days.  All you need is some red, black, and green tempera paint, bottle cap lids, and a brush or even just fingers if  your children love finger painting like I do.  This would also make a great family activity to mark the day.

Here is also a rhyming poem you can read together to help children understand the significance of the poppy.

Poppy Poppy

Poppy poppy what do you say?

Wear me on Remembrance Day.

Poppy poppy what do you tell?

Many soldiers in battle fell.

Poppy poppy what should we know?

That peace on earth should

grow, grow, grow.

Support amidst all the challenges

For many of us this past year has brought significant challenges.  We are fortunate to have  a lot of supports in our community.  For those of you that know Cathryn from Information Children, she is available and will be joining us either virtually or in person very soon.  Additionally, you can also contact her on your own.  The parenting line is available 24hrs.
