This origami (or kirigami) dove is easy to fold, but needs a few simple cuts with a pair of scissors. It makes a very pretty decoration for a table or mantelpiece, looks lovely in a mobile, or hanging on a Christmas tree. We have made ours using a semi-transparent handmade paper. We also decorated our Christmas tree last year with white doves made from handmade paper and embellished with a scattering of glitter on the wings! Of course a dove is also a symbol of peace and is appropriate for Martin Luther King day, too.
Martin Luther King's message was always one of peace. Try this pretty dove of peace craft as a reminder. This dove is also very pretty hanging from the Christmas Tree!
Brainstorm what is meant by "peace", what symbols are used for peace, or synonyms, and use this pretty frame to record the results.
