We are a proud military family and love supporting our troops and veterans! Our kids have been to a dozen or more send offs and welcome homes and enough military funerals to know freedom isn't free.
For this Veteran's Day we made a Bingo Bottle Poppy Craft to show our support and appreciation to Military Veterans. I love arts and crafts, but with 6 kids the mess can sometimes be overwhelming. That why I love painting with these Bingo Bottles (similar to Do-A-Dot Markers).
If you are braver than I, you can easily do this craft with fingerprints as well.
The girls made five red dots in a circle and our older boys put a green dot in the middle to make the poppy flower. We gave our 2 year old ample paper to make a "poppy field" on. After reading Flander's Field we wrote a little poem on each of the cards.
"I have a little poppy,
As red as red can be,
To show that I remember
Those who fought to make me free."
To all of our Veteran's, Happy Veteran's Day!
