I, Too, Have a Dream...
When Martin Luther King Jr. declared that he had a dream for a more peaceful and united society, he envisioned that one day little children of all races would be able to walk down the street hand-in-hand. He hoped that one day America would overcome the longstanding racial barriers, and today we have certainly come a long way.
There is no doubt that your child, too, has dreams and hopes for the future. Use this activity to show your little one that one day, she too can see her goals realized. While her dreams may be change over time, in the future she can look with a smile and see just how her younger self envisioned her future. Along with providing a lesson about the dreams of Martin Luther King Jr., and how he helped mold a brighter present day, this craft will also open your child's eyes to the possibilities her own future holds. This activity will also boost her creative writing, critical thinking, and motor skills as as she cuts, pastes, and assembles her inspirational "I, Too, Have a Dream" magnets.
