Why Color on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

Coloring isn’t just about staying within the lines; it’s a window into understanding big ideas in simple ways. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a special time to remember a hero who had a dream – a dream of equality, love, and peace. Through our coloring pages, we can explore these big concepts and talk about them in a way that’s easy and enjoyable for kids.

A Palette of History and Dreams

Imagine a palette where each color tells a story. A peaceful blue for Dr. King’s dream of tranquility, a hopeful green for growth and change, and a bold red for the courage of those who stood up for their rights. Each coloring page can be a mosaic of these ideals, blending history with creativity.

Our Coloring Pages: More Than Just Pictures

  • A Peaceful March: Color in the historic march where Dr. King led thousands in a peaceful protest. It’s a chance to discuss the power of coming together for a good cause.
  • The Iconic “I Have a Dream” Speech: Bring to life the momentous day at the Lincoln Memorial. Kids can even write their own dreams in speech bubbles!
  • Symbols of Peace and Equality: From doves to interlocking hands, these symbols can help kids understand the universal messages of harmony and fairness.

Interactive Fun: Beyond Coloring

Why stop at coloring? Here are some engaging activities to add an extra layer of learning:

  • Story Time: Pair coloring with story-telling. Narrate the history behind each page as kids color.
  • Dream Discussion: Encourage kids to talk about their dreams for a better world, inspired by Dr. King’s famous speech.
  • Colorful Puzzles: Cut the colored pages into puzzles. As kids piece them together, they piece together parts of history too.

Wrapping Up with a Colorful Reflection

As we put away our crayons, let’s reflect on the day. Coloring these pages isn’t just about making pretty pictures; it’s about understanding and cherishing the values that Martin Luther King Jr. stood for. Let’s hope our little artists not only enjoyed their time but also absorbed the powerful messages of love, equality, and peace.

Set in the ultimate crafting space, Curious Crafting is a short form pre-school age series about the joy of making crafts. I lead a rotating cast of adorable little preschoolers (including my own) making magic out of common household objects.

In each episode we transform recycled items into magical crafts like a milk carton school bus, paper bag puppet or cotton pad turtle. The crafters learn and laugh their way through each activity while demonstrating what their young imaginations can create.
