Nobel Peace Prize for Kids

3.1 based on 13 ratings

What You Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Paper and pencil
  • Colored markers or crayons
  • String

What You Do:

  1. Start off by letting your child think about what he would do to bring peace to all nations of the world. If he is having trouble thinking on such a grand scale, perhaps brainstorm ways to bring peace to the United States or even his own city. Encourage your child to come up with a few good ideas, perhaps three, and ask him to write them down.
  2. Help your child cut out a circle from the construction paper to constitute the Nobel Peace Prize medal. Ask him to cut it out of yellow or orange, or he may want to make it a little more colorful and pick out a different hue.
  3. After the circle has been cut out, help your child write down his three goals for obtaining peace on the front of the medal. Once his ideas for peace are written down on one side, ask him to flip the medal over and draw out what peace would look like to him. Give him a few ideas, such as people holding hands, a dove, or even smiling faces and then ask him to draw away!
  4. With the Nobel Prize now decorated, ask your child to carefully punch a hole in the top of and run a string through the hole to hang it from around his neck, a doorknob, or on a wall.

Your child will have a personalized reminder as to just how important loving each other, peace, and equality is to the world. Perhaps one day your future humanitarian will be awarded a true Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts!
