Mermaids` Makings

Remembrance Day Wreath

This weekend we celebrate Remembrance Sunday. My daughter`s topic at school this half term has been  war, particularly World War 1, so she has been learning about poppies. She has had a variety of homework – a book about members of the family who served in the war, a remembrance badge/ poster…and it gave us a good opportunity to talk about the war to her as a family, involving her grandparents as well.

We made this wreath – I saw it at Domestic Goddesque – and I liked it so much that we made our own, now hanging on our living room wall. I cut out a circle from a cereal box, and then cut out some poppy shapes from crepe paper. My daughter  helped me to glue them down. For the leaves we used green muffin cases, and then in the centre we glued some black beads from an old bracelet.

I thik it turned out beautifully!

    Thank you! I teach about Veterans Day in the US and my students read “In Flanders Fields”. This will be a wonderful addition to my classroom this November!
