Veterans Day is observed each year on November 11, and is a day to honor all those who have served their country in times of war or peace. The poppy is a well-known symbol of remembrance and respect, and these 6 poppy crafts are a great way to get the young – and the young-at-heart – learning about the solemnity of the occasion.

3. Cupcake Liner Poppies from Laughing Kids Learn 

From the website: “In light of teaching our children about war, in a way that is age appropriate, and paying tribute to those who have been or are currently involved in war, this is a simple paper craft that you might like to do with your young child. It uses a couple of little red cupcake liners and a lolly craft stick. So simple and beautiful.”

5. Pinwheel Poppies from Mum in the Mad House

From the website: “Both my boys take part in the annual remembrance parade as Cubs and this year it is the 100 anniversary of the start of World War One.  This has really captured the boys imagination, so we made Poppy Pinwheels. Remembrance Day, Armistice Day or Veteran’s Day as it is sometimes called is November 11th.”
