Remembrance Day and Remembrance Sunday is approaching soon. As a parent, I feel it is important that my children understand what the day is about and why we commemorate it. Here we share a set of easy Remembrance Day Craft and Activities for kids — lots of wonderful Poppy Crafts for kids to make and think about. Poppies as a symbol of the day are most common in the UK, Canada and Australia.

Remembrance Day is a memorial day which take place every year so that countries in the Commonwealth can remember members of the armed forces who have lost their lives serving their country. It was on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, that combat in World War 1 came to an end in The poppy was one of the first flowers to bloom on the battlefields of Flanders during World War 1.
A rmistice Day and Remembrance Sunday, both this week, provide the perfect opportunity for pupils to reflect on the events of the First World War and the continuing impact of conflict around the world. A good starting place is the Royal British Legion's learning pack. Updated every year, it contains a wealth of lesson ideas for KS on the themes of remembrance, conflict and the importance of peace. The pack, which also contains a copy of the First World War poem In Flanders Fields, is supported by six posters that can be downloaded for free. The packs encourage pupils to link their everyday experiences with people in the past and to gain an appreciation of the impact the First World War had on British society at that time.
