Use a paper plate to make a large poppy. If you have a group of students each of them can make their own poppy for a Remembrance Day bulletin board in your classroom.
We like to use acrylic paint for most of our projects. It is fairly easy to find and inexpensive -- we usually buy ours from the dollar store in the neighbourhood but we also sometimes get it at the craft store or Amazon. I like that it comes in small containers in a zillion colors so I can shop for the colors I need for each project without feeling guilty about waste. It is cleanable if you wipe it up while it's still wet. It dries fairly quickly so children don't end up sitting around waiting for the various stages of the project.
