Make your own poppy – Anzac Day
“Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served”.Source
Anzac Day 2020 will be a very hard one for many Australians. Most of us have family members who have served our country in one of our Armed Forces or we are in fact the ones currently serving. As a country we are used to paying our respects and commemorating the service of many through Anzac Day parades around the country. Schools get children involved, adults march for family members no longer here and current serving members come together.
Sadly in 2020 we won’t be able to do that as we all remain at home and in isolation throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. This isolation however does not mean we shouldn’t commemorate Anzac Day. It means we need to find alternative ways to do so to ensure that those we honour, will still see a country who honours them even from afar.
Here at Innate Therapies we have decided to put together a “Make Your Own Poppy” Worksheet so you can make your poppies at home. We then encourage you to make as many as you want and place them on your front door or front fence as a show of solidarity on Anzac Day.
Please share the link to the worksheet with your family and friends so we can get as many poppies on show as possible. If you would like to share your creations with us we would love to see them and you can share your photos with us via email to email@example.com and we will then share on our Facebook page.
Let’s all come together to show that true Anzac spirit and to commemorate those that make so many sacrifices for us to be able to live in this beautiful country we call home.
