Laminated Poppy pictures for Remembrance Day

Laminated Poppy pictures for Remembrance Day
November 3, 2016 No Comments Teaching Ideas montessorisoul

I have been asked about books for Remembrance day. This book is absolutely beautiful. It has a nice repeating refrain through out and the illustrations are out of this world. It shows the life’s of 2 friends that are young when the war breaks out and their time in the war and then when they are old. It is thought provoking without being too graphic for young children. I have used it with 3 – 8 year olds who all lived it and listened carefully and thoughtfully. Here is a link to it in amazon http://amzn.to/2e6c9Dr (affiliate link)

This was one of my favourite activities last year and the children loved it too!! Cut the apple in half  and use ready mix paint the flat side with red paint.  Print it onto the INSIDE of a laminating pouch.  Add a black center. We used a cut off carrot! Then you can add a stem and leaves with a paint brush.  Now it is really important to make sure that it dries properly! See top tips below! Once it is dry you can close the laminating sheet and put it through the laminator. 

We cut some of ours out and left some on whole sheets.  They look so beautiful a perfect way to introduce rememberance day.  See more Remembrance Day ideas in these other posts: Rememberance day including how to finger knot a poppy.  I also have a Remembrance Day board on Pinterest with lots of ideas.

Top Tips: Make sure paint is dry or it will spread out! Let the paint dry naturally or it will crack and peel.  It still looked ok laminated though 🙂
