I had a Dream…Craftivity!

July 14, 2012

I wanted to take a minute to share one of my favorite MLK Jr. crafts and activities to do!
Our I had a Dream craftivity:
That MLK was a cutie, huh?!

Anyways, he is just one of the fun activities I added to my lil packet. 
My fave, fave, fave book to read aloud is Martin’s BIG Words by Doreen Rappaport. The last two years my kids even teared up at the end… which causes me to tear up, and we have a sweet little cry fest and talk about how great MLK Jr. really was! It always amazes me the depth of understanding those little 6 year olds have. 
Martin's Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
After we read the book aloud and have many in-depth discussions, we create our own book of BIG words.

  • This version is sooo much better than the little Martin crafts my kiddos made last year. Why you ask? Because you have eliminated the mustache. Most of the Martin's my firsties made last year had a straight up Hitler stache, for reals!! This is super CUTE and yes, we both LOVE Martin's Big Words!
