Poppies grew over the graves of fallen soldiers. The poppy is a symbol for soldiers who died in conflict
Bottle Cap Field of Poppies
Materials: plastic bottle cap, red, black and green paint, brush, white paper, optional: green marker.
- Paint a small border of green “grass” on the bottom of the paper approx. 2 to 3 inches wide. (paper can be horizontal or vertical – horizontal means you can put more poppies).
- Holding onto the edge of the bottle cap, dip the cap into the red paint. Press the cap onto the paper anywhere from 2 to 5 inches above the “grass”. Repeat, randomly making a number of poppies. For young children, let dry before going on to #3.
Use a finger to make the center of the poppy. Dip fingertip into the black paint and touch fingertip to the center of the poppies.
- Using the green paint or the green marker make stalks for some, if not all, of the poppies.
