Remembrance Day Crafts??

Hi Everyone!
I am new to this site and I see that there haven't been many recent posts on the dayhome site. I was hoping that somebody out there would have ideas for a Remembrance Day themed week. I need books, stories, art, crafts, songs etc geared towards preschoolers and toddlers. You can imagine how hard it has been to find such things. Hopefully you all can help!
Thanks,
Janelle

Hi Debbie!
Thanks for the info, I was actually aware of the dltk website, but for some reason I had not read the Remembrance Day section thoroughly enough! The book sounds like a great idea and would be fun to make one day, then read at circle time another day.

I am just really having a hard time finding stories and learning games geared towards Remembrance Day. Looks like I'll have to get more creative and make up some of my own file folder game and felt stories!

Too bad, I'm really much better at following a template!

Thanks again for your help Debbie, I would love to share ideas with you in the future!

Janelle sorry not much more help......I really only do crafts and the littel book with the kids here for Remembrance day and we talk about the soldiers and what they have done. Helps that my hubby is military so he always things for the kids including a uniform for them to try on and pictures from overseas tours.


Hugs Debbie

Thanks Bilby...I just looked at the thread again. These poppies look great! I'm sure I will be able to use this craft for when my children get a little older. It is always great to have a stockpile in place so I don't have to keep looking every year.

Thanks again!!!

Found some great songs for youngsters on Rememberence day


Remembrance Day

In Flander's Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flander's fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, tho poppies grow
In Flander's fields.
Liet. -Col. John McCrae
Poppy
Poppy we are but children small,
We are too little to do it all.
Children you may do your part.
Love each other is how you start.
Play without fighting.
Share your games and toys.
Be kind and thoughtful,
To all girls and boys.
Remembrance Day
We wear a poppy
On Remembrance Day,
And at eleven
We stand and pray.
Wreaths are put
Upon a grave.
As we remember
Our soldiers brave.
Little Poppy
Little poppy
Given to me,
Help me keep Canada
Safe and free.
I'll wear a little poppy,
As red as red can be,
To show that I remember
Those who fought for me.
Coming In On a Wing and a Prayer
Coming in on a wing and a prayer,
Look below there's our field over there.
Though there's one motor gone
We will still carry on,
Coming in on a wing and a prayer.
Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree
Don't sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me,
With anyone else but me,
With anyone else but me,
No no no!
Don't sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me,
TIll I come marching home.
The White Cliffs of Dover
There'll be bluebirds over
The White Cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow just you wait and see.
There'll be love and laughter
And peace ever after,
Tomorrow when the world is free.
Are You Sleeping?
(to the tune of "Frere Jacques")
See the poppies
See the poppies
Oh so red
Oh so red
Growing on the hillside
Growing on the hillside
Soldiers lay dead
Soldiers lay dead
We remember
We remember
On this day
On this day
Soldiers on the hillside
Soldiers on the hillside
Far away
Far away



hugs Debbie
