Due to staff shortages caused by the increase in COVID cases and current testing and isolation requirements the Upwey and Yarra Junction Community Links will be closed until the end of January.
Ages: 3 years+
Purpose: Children’s activity: Spending time with our children making Poppies is a creative way to acknowledge and celebrate ANZAC day and to remember the commemorate all who have and are serving.
1. Fold A4 red paper in half, then in half again.
2. Draw half heart along the fold line—you may be able to fit in 2.
3. Cut out the half heart - once cut out it should reveal 4 whole hearts.
4. Take each heart together at the base - this sample uses 3 hearts per flower.
5. On the front side draw a black circle for the centre of the poppy.
6. Tape the stick onto the back of the flower.
7. You could plant in the garden or give to a special person.
Questions - While making the Poppies talk about ANZAC day and why we celebrate and remember on the 25th April each year.
Extension - make ANZAC cookies, YUM!
