We adore real poppy flowers and love to celebrate their beauty with poppy activities galore! To help you enjoy some poppy craft time too, we’ve collected together our 20 favourite poppy crafts for kids. We’ll keep adding to them as we come up with more ideas, so do check back again in the future too.
Poppy crafts are lovely to enjoy in the summer months when our fields are teaming with them and then again in November as countries around the world commemorate those that have fought and died in wars.
Whether you’re looking for Memorial Day poppy crafts, or Anzac Day crafts if you’re in Australia or New Zealand, or whether you’re just enjoying these pretty flowers at other times of the year, you’re sure to find some poppy ideas that you like here.
Below you’ll see a photo of each poppy craft idea and below that a sentence with a link that you can click to view the full tutorial.
