They’re just simple circle poppies on a folded piece of card stock, but they provide a lovely art experience for kids, and the opportunity to strengthen scissor skills, and fine-motor abilities.

Supplies:

  • Card stock or construction paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • fine-tipped black marker or pen

Styles Suggestions for Age Groups:

Another nice thing – kids can work at their own level of development, making their poppies as basic or as detailed as they like.

Toddlers/Preschoolers:

Young children can simply layer two different sizes of circles – one black and one red together to form their poppies, and cut straight stems to glue beneath each one.

Older Kids:

Older kids can cut multiple layers for their poppies, and fringe the edges of their petals and leaves to mimic the frilly look of a real poppy.

In between:

For kids whose fine motor skills aren’t advanced enough to do the intricate scissor work above, is to keep the poppies simple, but add a few details to the petals with a fine tipped pen or marker.
