Messy Church at Home: Week Four - Making a Pinwheel Poppy!
It’s Remembrance Day soon, when we remember all those who have died for our freedom in different wars. We remember by wearing a Red Poppy. Here is how you can make a Pinwheel poppy.
You will need: squares of red paper (or paper you have coloured red); scissors; paper fasteners; a black sharpie pen; a holepunch.
Cut your square of paper into the rough shape shown below - just fold a square in half diagonally, cut slits down the folds and shaped the edges. Use a hole punch to make holes on the four corner dots, and make a hole in the centre by pushing a paper fastener through. Curl each pointed end to the centre and put the paper fastener through all the holes. Colour the paper fastener black to look like the poppy seeds. Make a second square and add it to the original poppy if you want a fuller poppy shape.
We also remember, with grateful hearts, that Jesus, the son of God, gave up his life so that we might be rescued from our sin. John 3, v 16 says it all. God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
