People around the world are working for peace. Create this universally recognized symbol of harmony as a reminder of what you can do to help.
Have you heard the saying "If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem"? What can you do to promote peace? Can the world be a peaceful place if you fight with others? If you are inconsiderate to strangers? If you gossip about others? With your classmates, discuss how you can work toward harmony every day.
What are some universal symbols for peace? To remind yourself about the need to practice peace every day, in all you do, create a paper mâché Bird of Peace.
Cover your art area with recycled newspaper. Crumple up a piece of recycled newspaper into a large ball. This will be the bird's body.
Tear more newspaper into strips. Mix Crayola® School Glue and water in equal parts. Coat strips with glue mixture. Cover crumpled newspaper completely with two layers of papier mâché. Dry.
Roll newspaper into a small ball and tape to body for the bird's head. Apply two or more layers of newspaper to shape into a bird. Dry.
Paint your bird with Crayola Paint Brushes and Washable Tempera. Add details such as a beak, feathers, and eyes. Dry.
Decorate with Crayola Glitter Glue. Dry.
Poke a partially unfolded paper clip into the bird's back. Pull to secure it. Attach yarn to the clip to hang.
