Inspiring Crafts for Martin Luther King, Jr Day


Kiddos off from school for Martin Luther King, Jr Day? Looking for something artsy and fun to do?? Here are some inspiring crafts, activities, and art projects that promote peace and diversity.

I love that each one of these peace signs is unique! Instructions can be found here for this very toddler-friendly art project!

 

 

This peace dove painting was made using a hand print! Check out Handprint and Footprint Art for the how-to.

 

This dove garland is beautiful and very frugal to make — using coffee filters! Click here for instructions and a free downloadable pattern.
