We believe that there is no such thing as “too young” when it comes to learning about Remembrance Day (Veteran’s Day for our American Friends), so we rounded up a few of our favourite crafts to help you introduce your children to this important holiday. Each of them use different materials so you can likely find one to make with things you already have at home.
Finger painting is always a hit with our kiddos, so we tried and tested this poppy craft personally with great results!
Stained glass is always a beautiful option, and this poppy craft from You Pinspire Me definitely lives up to that. Best of all there is a fun song to use in teaching your littles all about Remembrance Day.
The stark simplicity and texture really stand out in this activity from Sun Hats and Wellie Boots, making it one of our favourites. We can’t wait to try this with our kid’s handwriting on the bottom. Stunning!
There is something extra special about a Remembrance Day (or Memorial Day) craft when you include your country’s flag. This simple craft and colouring sheet from Learning Adventures at Home is perfect for our American friends honouring their veterans.
These are our favourite ways to include our children in remembering our veterans, both past and present. Tell us in the comments below, what activities you do with your children on Remembrance Day?
