The Best Black History Month Activities for Kids

INSIDE: Here is a collection of fun and easy Black History Month Crafts and Activities for preschoolers and kindergartners. Some of these activities are also appropriate for toddlers with adult assistance.

February is Black History Month. It’s a time to celebrate the achievements of Black people in Canada, US and else where. It’s also a time to learn about the figures that helped create a more just and equitable society for all.

This year I am so excited to share with you all the new Black History Month activities we are doing. We made crafts for Rosa Parks using paper plates, we used toilet paper rolls to make craft for MLK and Ruby Bridges and Harriet Tubman. We also created a solidarity sticky wall and many more.

How to Incorporate Black History Month at Home

The answer isn’t hard. Books (see below). Start off by reading an age appropriate book about a particular historical figure and then select an age appropriate craft, writing prompt or activity for your child to complete.

For my 6 year old this year we did lots of crafts and a word search. Next year, I plan to start incorporating more writing prompts for her. Check out this list below for more ideas.
