International Youth Day Activity for Children

youth-day

August 12th marks International Youth Day. How can your child celebrate? Even though they’re a youth themselves, your child can use this day to learn more about other young people. Help your child to pick a notable contemporary young person or someone from history. After they’ve selected someone to research, your child can create an International Youth Day multimedia project.

Materials Needed

  • A computer, tablet or other device to conduct research on
  • Poster board paper
  • School glue or a glue stick
  • Markers, crayons or colored pencils
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Note cards

How To Project Steps

  1. Choose a child or teen to research. Ask your child why they want to research the notable youth. This could include any child who has made a major impact historically or right now.
  2. Research the youth. Your child can create a timeline of the youth’s life (so far) or choose to focus on one exceptional action.
  3. Write a mini report. Your child doesn’t need to write pages on their chosen subject. Instead, they can fill out note cards.
  4. Create borders for each note card. Your child can cut out colorful construction paper and glue the note cards to the front of each piece.
  5. Glue the note cards onto the poster board.
  6. Print photos or have your child draw pictures of the person. Add these to the poster board.
