Poppy crafts are great to make in November. Since Halloween has finished and Christmas isn’t here yet, November kids crafts help to keep those little hands busy. Also, as we prepare to participate in Remembrance Day (Canada) and/or Veterans Day (US) poppy crafts are a great way to get conversations started.

This poppy kids craft is perfect for all age groups, with simple instructions and small material list it’s great for students as well. It works well for preschoolers and toddlers as well as older children, who can cut and create their own poppy. We made this craft with kids aged three to seven and all of them enjoyed creating the poppy for November 11th.

Once the popsicle sticks are dry, grab the hot glue gun if you’re working with preschoolers (or use all purpose school glue if you’re working with older kids) and glue the two small sticks onto the bigger one in the shape of a cross.
