CREATE A PAPER PEACE QUILT

Have the family brainstorm ways to promote peace. Write or illustrate each idea on a 3" x 3" square piece of paper. Then tape them together to create a beautiful paper quilt. Think about how many squares might make the quilt look complete - perhaps 16 or 25. Hang it up for all to enjoy! You might get several families together to create a bigger quilt with more ideas for practicing peace.

Talk to your child:

  • What does peace mean to you?

  • How can your family work for peace?
