International Day of Peace Idea

I love that our school always makes a big deal about the International Day of Peace, which will be on September 21 this year.  We've always participated in the Pinwheels for Peace project and have the kids make pinwheels that we plant around the school grounds, which are adorable. You can learn more about that here.

This year we're celebrating a little early, which works out for you if you want to join in! Today all the kids in the school decorated a tag (like these) and wrote their wishes for peace. Then we all went outside and tied our tags to a tree. There was some soft music playing in the background while we tied and then we checked out the tags that were already there.

It was a quick and easy way to take part in Peace Week activities and it was a really meaningful experience for the kids.

Here are some great books to help kids understand the concept of peace, just click on the cover to see them on Amazon:

Peace Out!
