Mrs. M over at Color Me Kinder shared this beautiful peace wreath craft that would be the perfect addition to your plans for Martin Luther King Jr Day or Black History Month. As a collaborative project, your kiddos will find out firsthand what it means and how it feels to work together toward a common goal, as well as observe how each of their personal contributions is necessary and important in order to create a beautiful and full wreath to display!

To create hand prints for the wreath...

  • Have students trace and cut their hand prints from multicultural construction paper.
  • Provide students with multicultural paint, inviting them to use a paint brush to cover their hand with paint and gently press it to a piece of white card stock. When dry, have them cut out their prints and arrange them into the shape of a wreath.
  • Of course, you can always use multicultural markers to trace and color, then cut!
