Paper Plate Poppies

It is that time of the year that we pause and remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice to help protect our country. This year we have been making paper plate poppies. It is a simple craft that is good to help little ones start to understand Remembrance Day.

Make sure that you follow my season of crafts board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own paper plate poppies you will need:

  • Paper plate
  • Tissue paper
  • Glue
  • Black paper or felt

We used bamboo plates rather than paper plates as we had loads left after a party. Just as a side note, if you are trying to be eco-friendly, you generally can’t recycle paper plates. Sad fact, but true.

Did you know that there are actually 4 different colours for remembrance poppies? Red is the one we all know to remember those military personal who have died in conflict. White is to remember those who have died in conflict, with a focus on achieving peace. Black poppies are to commemorate those of black African and Caribbean communities and their contribution to the war effort, both as servicemen and women, and civilians. Finally the purple poppies are for the animals who died during wars.

Cut your tissue paper into squares. Then cover the plate in glue before sticking the tissue paper down on.

YC decided she wanted to do a red and purple poppy, BB just picked whatever colours he wanted.
