Celebrate Peace Book and Activity

Our growing diversity and the close proximity of widely different cultures in many communities means it's important to learn how to be peaceful and tolerant of others’ beliefs.

 

At this community event for young children (and their parents), the theme is peace: peace between people, nations, and cultures.

Read The Peace Book

 

As the organizer and coordinator of the event, first read The Peace Book by Todd Parr to the gathered children and set the mood for the day's activities.

To make the space more comfortable for floor sitting, considering spreading out a large picnic blanket or comforter. You can also add a few floor pillows to make the story-time area more inviting.

The Crafts

After reading the book, engage your resident kids in a related craft. Here are a few ideas:

This collaborative brightly colored hands mural is a great way to help kids work together. Everyone can work independently to decorate their own handprints, and then assemble them together at the end.

It’s a great way to teach working together towards a common fun objective in a peaceful and collaborative way. It also makes a beautiful community mural to place in your rental office.
