I have made these around poppy day for years now  and residents love making them each year, it combines arts "n" crafts with a meaningful activity. They look really effective when on a wall.

Materials

  • Large & Small paper plates
  • Red, Black and Green paint & brushes
  • A3 paper

Instructions

For each poppy you will need four large paper plates and one small paper plate.

Paint large plates poppy Red, small plate Black.

Cut strips of A3 paper about 1" wide 25mm and paint these green this will be the poppy stem.

Once everything has dried staple the four large red plates together in the approx shape of the poppy flower.

Staple the stem in position.

Then place the small black plate in the centre of the red plates and using a drawing pin attach to the wall this holds the poppy together.

Save time with 1000's of meaningful

I am working with residents with Dementia at late stage, they all loved painting and singing songs, and in the end they were so pleased at seeing these beautiful poppies!
Many thanks!
