These paper plate poppies are pretty much the simplest poppy craft out there, so easy that even very young toddlers can join in but also enjoyable for older children too (Seb is 6 this month and enjoyed it). All you need is some paper plates, red tissue paper, black paper and glue (pva or a glue stick will work perfectly).
Simply rip or cut up the red tissue paper (get the little ones to help, they love it) and glue the pieces to the paper plates. Once the plate is covered in red tissue paper, cut the black paper and glue to the centre. Leave the glue to dry and you will have some beautiful poppies to display.
There are some great resources available to help children understand and learn more about remembrance day. For very young children Cbeebies have a lovely shirt film called Poppies. Twinkl have some great printables availabke inckuding this simple 3D Poppy Craft. For older children The British Legion have some fab resources available.
