Poppy making; Using red paint make handprints in a circle with the fingers on the outside.  Using fingers paint the middle black. For an extra messy treat allow the children to explore with red paint on black paper in support of our ANZACs.

Go-Yin 2 to 3 years

Poppy collage making; Cut a potato in half and using this with red paint stamp red poppies onto a piece of card/paper. Using a pen create stalks to the poppies and using black paint and your fingers colour the middle of the poppy in black.  Hang in the window to display.

Ngurr-Ngurr 3 to 6 years

Poppy Reef; Using an egg cartoon cut the bottom egg holders out, trim the edges to look like a poppy and then paint with red and black. Using a cardboard circle stick in the arrangement of a reef and hang on the front door.

Mon-Garrk Primary school

Anzac candle lantern; Using the bottom half of a milk bottle decorate with Poppies, medals and the Australian and New Zealand flag using sharpie pens.  Place a tealight inside and ensure it is placed at the bottom of the drive on ANZAC morning at 6 am.
