Talk about different symbols of peace. Of course, there is the two-fingered hand gesture made popular in the 1960s, as well as the peace sign. Children can strengthen their finger muscles while using Playdoh or clay to replicate these patterns.
Other common signs of peace are the dove and olive branch, often pictured together. Use posters by Pablo Picasso as inspiration for children to create their own peaceful posters using these symbols.
The peace flag is a rainbow in opposite rainbow order. The top stripe is indigo, followed by blue, green, yellow, orange, and red at the bottom. The word peace is written in the middle in white. Children can try to paint their own at the easel. They can glue strips of colors in order on a background, following an example.
