In remembrance of those who died in the 9/11 attacks, we made memorial wreaths. Although my girls were not born until a few years after that day, I feel that this is a day for us to unite as one and remember those lives lost on that day.
I first traced the girls hands and cut out several from red, white, and blue construction paper.
Then I cut the center from a paper plate to make a base for the wreath.
Next, the girls glued their hands around the outside of the paper plate.
When they were finished, I cut out stars and glued them to the wreath with the words "We Will Never Forget". I then added a piece of ribbon to hang the wreaths.
