ANZAC Day and Children

How do you introduce ANZAC day to your children?

I've been wondering about how to talk about this with my little boy. Here are some ideas I've been reading about and a way to perhaps start a tradition of commemorating ANZAC day with children.

Go to the dawn service!
Watching a service on TV.
Visiting your local library or bookshop beforehand and borrow or buy some of the many books on war, Gallipoli or Anzac Day. Go to your local war memorial later in the day to see the wreaths that have been laid there and read the messages on them. Going to a local museum and looking at the military section.
Taking a personal approach - talking about stories within your own family, or perhaps finding another persons story to read.


Lest We Forget

Rhema Media marks the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings.

The passing of time is a strange thing. 

In 100 years the world has completely changed. It has seen the advent of computers, air travel, man’s exploration of space, the rise and fall of governments and dictatorships, and generation after generation of human life. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings. ON the 25th of April, 1915. On that day, thousands of young men, far from their homes, stormed the beaches on the Gallipoli Peninsula. By the time the 8 month campaign ended, more than 130,000 men had died: Among them 2779 New Zealanders. "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them."

Resurrection Rolls

This is a recipe I got off the web. I am going to try this for the first time on Sunday!

Here's hoping it works out.

Make dinner rolls to begin with.

Dinner Rolls

1 cup water
2 Tbsp butter, softened
1 egg
3 1/4 cups bread flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
3 tsp regular active dry yeast OR 3 tsp bread machine yeast or quick-acting active dry yeast.

Combine the above and make into a dough.

Resurrection Rolls
6 TB sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 bag large marshmallows
1/4 cup butter, melted

Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
Divide the dough into individual roll sized portions. Press each portion into a flat circle.
Place 1 large marshmallow in the center of each roll.
Pinch roll dough very firmly around the marshmallow.
Roll each into a seamless, or nearly seamless, ball with your hands.Brush rolls with melted butter.
Sprinkle sugar mixture over rolls.
Cover rolls with plastic wrap and put in the fridge overnight.
On Sunday morning, preheat oven to 180°.
Take rolls out of fridge and bake for 15 minutes until rolls are golden brown. Be careful not to overbake.
(These may also be baked without sitting overnight. After wrapping the marshmallow in them, let them rise for about an hour or so and then bake them as usual.)
