Take the A6 card which can be any colour and make a template for the poppies. Two bow shapes to fit on the page and a circle. Cut them out.
Fold the A4 pieces into half and half again. While still folded trace the bow shapes onto the top of the red folded cards and the circle onto the folded black card. Let your child trace around the shapes. This should make twelve poppies. Keep the pieces folded and cut out.
Use a pencil to gently curve the ends of each red bow shape.
Take the circles and hole punch two holes into it with either a tiny hole puncher, or a sharp pencil. The circles should look like a button. Take the circle and use it as a template. Use the pencil to mark through the holes onto the bow so you know how far apart to make the holes. One bow has the two holes going horizontally and on the other the holes will line up vertically. Continue to do this to the rest of the flower bows.
Cut The string the length you would like and thread a blunt needle on the end. Start threading the flowers. Let your child have a go at treading them on. The sequence to thread them on is – first bow horizontal holes, second a bow with vertical holes, the black circle all going through one hole then the bead. Thread back through the other holes just like sewing on a button.
Keep going until you run out of flowers or make some more to decorate your front fence for Anzac day.
