MLK Day Crafts

These Martin Luther King Day crafts can be used to teach children about other colours and cultures, and discuss the principals that Dr Martin Luther King Jr stood for. We have crafts which concentrate on his "I have a dream speech", crafts that give you an opportunity to talk about children of different races and colours, and also crafts with a "peace" theme.
