International Day of Peace Kids’ Crafts
Celebrate International Day of Peace with your child! How? With a few fun-filled peace sign activities. Try these easy art activities that will help your child to get creative while learning about peace.
Painted Peace Symbol
Reuse a large piece of cardboard, turning it into a mega drawing pad. The side of an old appliance or electric box will work well. Your child can draw an over-sized peace sign onto the cardboard. Give your child a rainbow of tempera paints to finger paint onto the drawing.
Peace Symbol Prints
Draw a peace sign onto a piece of thin Styrofoam with a craft stick or toothpick. Paint the drawing with tempera and then press it onto a piece of construction paper. Peel it off to reveal a print. Repeat to make peace signs in different colors. All you need to do is wash off the foam drawing in between.
Chalk Peace Symbols
If the weather cooperates, take the chalk outside and draw peace signs onto the sidewalk. If the weather is rainy or cold, stay inside and try the same project — on paper. Your child can draw peace signs onto dark or bright colors of construction paper using sidewalk chalk. Add a few different colors or have your child make patterns in the peace sign. You can also paint a thick piece of cardboard or a wood scrap with chalkboard craft paint. Draw the peace sign and other peaceful patterns (such as flowers) with the chalk.
