Peace Plates


Yesterday I read my class What Does Peace Feel Like? and then we made our peace plates!

I LOVE these peace plates. They're so beautiful but easy to do.

I used plain white plates ... those very flimsy ones from the dollar store. I put masking tape on them ahead of time. I was very careful to make sure that all the edges were down so that no paint would seep through.

The kids used their water colours. All I told them was to cover the entire plate and that they could use any colour except black, brown or gray.

After their paintings dried, I carefully peeled off the tape, then outlined their peace signs with a black sharpie.

Couldn't be easier!
