This craft is to create the poppy fields left on the battlefields across Europe. It is just a small token of remembrance and thanks for all of those who have ever given the greatest sacrifice in protecting this country.
To make your own poppy field picture you will need:
- Cotton wool balls
- Red, black and green paint
- Thin paintbrush
- Thick paintbrush
- Dip one of your cotton wool balls into the red paint and stamp in onto your paper to make the petals of the poppy.
- Use another cotton wool ball dipped into the black paint to create the centre of the poppy.
- Using the thin paintbrush give your flowers their stems and then use the thicker paintbrush (which is lightly dipped into the green paint) to create the grass.
