Anzac Day - Handprint Poppy Flower

It is fast approaching Anzac Day while Neevah and Liam do not understand the meaning of Anzac Day or Soldiers or War for that matter (I figure there is plenty of time to learn about it when they are a bit older) I still think it is important that they know it is a day we commemorate. I gave her a very simple explanation that a Poppy is a symbol of remembrance on Anzac Day although she probably doesn't know what remembrance is either she knew we where making a Poppy because it will be Anzac Day soon. Neevah really enjoyed this messy craft....
