WeeWork Kids Craft: Martin Luther King Jr. Dream Mobiles
Martin Luther King Day is a holiday that kids can relate to on both a personal level and on a larger scale. Children have dreams for themselves, but can also think of hopes for the world. This easy project is a fun way for kids to think about those dreams and create a pretty decoration to remind us all of the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. on any day.
Read on for the three-step directions to create a special cloud dream mobile for Martin Luther King Day. And check back tomorrow for another fun activity.
1. Cut out clouds shapes. I did this freehand, but you can find free templates online with a quick Google search. Slightly thicker paper, like construction paper, will keep its shape better.
2. Write dreams on clouds. We each did one with a personal dream and another with a hope for the world.
3. Tape clouds to ribbon or string and hang in window or above bed to remember your dreams.
Feel free to embellish your cloud mobiles further with glitter or whatever you like. We still had some star decorations left over from Christmas so we attached those to the ribbons as well.
