Youngsters learn a lesson on poppies from Elmbridge Museum
Creative youngsters will get a taste of history at the next family arts and craft event at Elmbridge Museum.
To coincide with Remembrance Sunday, the event will explain to children why the poppy is so significant in history and why the Royal British Legion adopted the flower as the symbol for their Poppy Appeal.
After hearing the story behind the red flower, youngsters can create their own personalised poppy with a range of arts and crafts materials.
Councillor Jan Fuller, portfolio holder for leisure and culture, said: “Poppies hold such a special place in history. Their bright colour makes them particularly memorable, especially for children.
“In this session, children will learn a bit more about their significance and take their creations home to keep and show their friends and family.”
