I Have a Dream!


I Have a Dream!

[15 Minutes]

On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote a speech about his non-violent fight for civil rights. Honor his memory with this activity where you and your child can express your dreams to help our country.

You'll need:

• blue construction paper • white construction paper • scissors • markers • glue

What to do:

  1. If possible, print out these directions. Read them through with your child before you begin.
  2. With your child, gather everything you’ll need.

How to play:

  1. This is a non-competitive game. It is an activity where you and your child put thoughts together about a theme or subject.
  2. Use the blue construction paper as your base and write “I Have a Dream” at the top.
  3. Together, cut out cloud shapes from the white construction paper. Glue these to the blue sheet.
  4. Talk with your child about Martin Luther King Jr’s dream.
  5. Ask what dreams she may have for our country and together write them on each cloud.
  6. Display this poster at home for other members of the family to see.
