Veteran's Day provides a wonderful opportunity to talk with children about the role of violent and non-violent protest. It also is a time to engage intentionally around creating peace. There are many wonderful websites offering simple craft ideas and inspiration for talking with kids about what it means to be peacemakers.
* Peace Dove Coloring Sheets
* Peace Crafts (doves and paper cranes)
* Make your own Peace Pole
* Learn how to say "Peace" in many languages (I love the Karen Katz book for this, too).
