In addition to what the kids are learning at school about the ANZAC's Today we searched Ancestry for the ANZACS in our family and the Discover ANZACS website, there is a lot of information that I have previously not been able to find.
I wanted to make some cardstock poppies with the kids to use when recording these memories and the stories of the ANZACS in our family.
Draw a yellow circle and colour it in in the centre.
Draw a scribbly circle over the yellow and then do lots of dots around it. You can do this at any stage before shaping.
I just dabbed the ink pad on my craft sheet and added water.
Some I coloured with a brush and some I just dabbed the cardstock directly into the colour.
If you make them with coloured cardstock it will affect the hint of yellow in the centre so just do a black centre.
To shape them I ran my large stylus in little circles all over the flower and then pressed down hard in the middle so it popped up and created a fold.
These poppies are a great activity for children to create for ANZAC Day.
I love how they turned out and will add them to my stash I am collecting to record the ANZACS in our family. There is no photo of Grandma's brother so hopefully I can get my cousin who has his Medal to take a photo of it and I will scrap that.
