Rainbow crafts for kids

Educational Pride activities to inspire you!

1) Start with a discussion about being kind.

Begin with a lesson on kindness. Ask students what they think it means to be friendly and accepting. Encourage differences and emphasize that all families are unique. 

2) Design rainbow crafts and decorations.

Engage children in colorful art projects that celebrate diversity. Create rainbow-themed crafts, such as rainbow flags, friendship bracelets, or collaborative art pieces.

Display these creations around the classroom as a visual reminder of inclusivity and acceptance. 

3) Create a pride month collaborative project.

Engage the whole classroom in a collaborative project that highlights the uniqueness of each child.

For example, create a "Wall" where children can contribute self-portraits accompanied by descriptions of what makes them special. This project celebrates individuality.

4) Invite guest speakers and involve the community.

Invite community members or allies to share their own stories about kindness. This can help foster empathy and understanding, as well as provide positive role models.

Consider reaching out to local LGBTQ+ organizations or community centers for potential guest speakers.
