Veterans Day Craft – Finger Print Poppies

Finger Print Poppies


Poppies are synonymous with the WWI battlefields and are used as a reminder of those who have died fighting and for those who have and are still serving their countries in the armed forces.

This finger print craft is very easy – why not make your poppy field into a card for a friend or relative?

How to make a Finger Print Poppy Field…

See steps in photos…

  1. Take a green piece of construction paper.
  2. Squeeze some red and black paint into a tray.
  3. Dip your finger in the red paint and print spots all over the green paper.
  4. When you’ve finished printed the poppies, take a cotton bud and dip it in the black paint.
  5. Dab spots of black paint in the middle of each red print.
  6. Leave to dry.
  7. If you would like to make your field into a card, fold it in half when dry and write inside it.



  • You can do this with other colours and just create a meadow of flowers.
  • Try to create ‘clumps’ of poppies instead of spreading them out evenly.
