What are you doing for MLK day?
Today we honor Martin Luther King Jr. for his great actions and words that has changed the face of America forever. What to do to celebrate this great man? For MLK day I like to pick one huge event (ex. freedom riders) and watch free PBS shows, find articles online (for the older one). I love to discuss the event with the kids after we watch the shows and read articles. For the young kiddo's, I like to do a freedom rider bus craft! We print out a free bus coloring page from www.coloring-pages-lids.com . you can either have the kids just color the bus while talking about the freedom riders or you can have them draw pictures of people on the bus and write in large letters Freedom Riders!.....Check your local listings for MLK events happening in your area. So....what are you guys doing to celebrate MLK day?
