Memories of the First World War are symbolically linked to the flowers that continued to grow on the churned-up battlefields.
In the U.S. and in the Commonwealth countries, the poppy was adopted as the symbol. In France, it was the cornflower or “Bleuet de France”.
This video shows how to make either one of these flowers. This beautiful craft is a good way to involve children in celebrating Remembrance Day, Veterans Day or Memorial Day. If you make this project with a large group, you could make a whole field of flowers.
