ANZAC day wreath

ANZAC Day wreath

ANZAC day in Australia marks the courage and bravery of soldiers on the day the ANZAC soldiers landed in Gallipoli, Turkey in 1915, and broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders who served and/or died in all wars. School usually have a ceremony to remember the people who suffered and sacrificed their lives during wars.

I cut out a large circle wreath shape from a cardboard box. Students sponged green paint over one side. They also sponged a combination of green, yellow and brown over green cover paper with leaf templates already drawn on the back. Once dry, the leaves were cut out and glued onto the cardboard wreath.

Students used circles of red tissue paper, crepe paper or patty pans to make a poppy.
