A red poppy is an emblem of remembrance and has long been associated with Anzac Day memorial services. You can make a paper flower version of a red poppy for Anzac Day with your kids and teach them the meaning of Anzac Day.
What you need: 1 x piece of red A4 paper 1 x green chenille stem glue scissors pencil ruler Measure and cut two 10cm x 10cm squares from the red paper.
Fold each square into quarters (see video) and then fold on the diagonal, so that each folded edge meets and the cut edge is along the top.
Now mark out a curve on the triangle (see video).
Cut along that curve.
When you open it out, you should have a red flower shape. Make two.
Snip a hole in the centre of each red flower shape, push the chenille stem through the centre and tie a knot or twist to keep it in place.
Add a dab of glue to the underside of the flower where it meets the chenille stem, for good measure.
