We have several books to put on the shelves, but we wanted to make some special crafts to also show the meaning behind the month- diversity, celebrating difference and acceptance. We made a bus craft after we read the inspiring Rosa Park's story and now we wanted to create a "Peace" Wreath. Working with my boys, we creating this masterpiece that is now on our front door- reminding us that love comes in all different colours!
neutral cardstock or construction paper (representing skin colour)
1. Trace your child or children's hands on the skin tone construction paper.
2. Ask your older children to help you make 8-10 copies of the handprint.
3. Overlapping them to make a circle, glue the hands together (thumb to pinkie).
4. Complete your wreath with a heart shape cut out and glued in the centre.
5. You can add words to your wreath- "Peace", "Love", "I Have a Dream", "Love comes in all colours".
Hang it somewhere in the house to remind you and your child that love does come in all different colours!
