The High King Lives

Hello dear ones! Thanks for all the comments. It really makes me smile when I know people are reading. Well, MLK day has passed but I wanted to post this reblog anyways. Last year we did a couple of Civil Rights crafts for Black History Month. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of my heroes and has been since I was a kid. I have his picture in my hall. We are learning about the 50’s in our Time Machine Unit so Michael and I had a talk about MLK. It was perfect timing. Maybe you can use some of these craft ideas in February since I’m posting early 🙂 God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover

Hello friends and welcome to Crafty Monday. Today I’m going to show you a few of the crafts we’ve been doing for Black History Month. This has been fun for me because I’ve always been very passionate about Civil Rights. We’ve read some neat books on Civil rights and also on Slavery. A good book is “Almost to Freedom” by Vaunda Micheaux Nelson. It tells the story of a girl’s escape on the underground railroad, from the perspective of her doll. Another good kid’s book is “My Dream of Martin Luther King” by Faith Ringgold.

Moving on….I got the Martin Luther King hands and the Peacock ideas from: http://elementaryartfun.blogspot.com/

and I got the Civil Rights hands with the heart idea from:  http://art-paper-scissors.blogspot.com/
