Things to talk about during these Martin Luther King Jr activities:

  • Explain to your kids who Martin Luther King Jr was.
  • Why peace was so important to MLK Jr. (non-violent protest).
  • Name examples when your kid and you acted peacefully towards another person.
  • How did that make you and your kid feel?
  • Who keeps the peace (parents, police, leaders) in your country?

Talking to children about humanity and human rights is important. However, it’s also important to do it on an age appropriate level. Doing simple and fun activities helps to open your child up for deeper, but important topics.
