VVCS Poppies - Colouring Sheets

With the school year winding down, it’s nearly time to find some home holiday activities for the kids! Colouring in is a great way to relax, and it also gets us away from our digital devices, giving our mind and body a break from the digital world.

Why not give it a go with our VVCS Poppy colouring sheets. We’d love to see your finished masterpiece – please post to our VVCS FB page!

You can download the VVCS poppy colouring sheets below:
