Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Crafts and Activities

by Rebecca Eanes



  1. Talking About Diversity with Children Using Playdough by Bonbon Break. Combining a sensory activity with learning, I love this creative idea by Katie Myers. Kids learn that, no matter what color the playdough is, it feels just the same.

  2. What is Diversity? By Kids Activities Blog. This activity uses eggs to demonstrate to kids that, no matter color the outside is, the inside is the same.

  3. MLK Day Coloring Pages from Activity Village. Here, there are 3 pages to choose from ranging from simple to detailed. Personally, I love the peace dove and may color it myself!

  4. Free Banner by Playdough to Plato. With prompts such as “I have a dream…” and “I can be kind by…” this banner is a sweet activity to do after learning about MLK Jr.

  5. The M&M Experiment by Crayon Freckles. This teaches diversity much like the egg experiment, but is a bit tastier in my opinion!
