Instructions: Cut a white paper circle approx 2 1/2 inches across (size of frozen OJ lid) Then cut the small paper plate in half. One half becomes the doves body and the other half is cut in half again ( or quarters) The small circle is the dove's head, the half circle is the body, and the two quarter circle pieces are the wings. We glue these together, add eyes and glitter and then staple them to the headbands. Our kids love to wear any kind of crowns!
Alternatives: This is better for older preschoolers 3 and up.
Comments: After making these crowns we talk about the work of Dr. Martin Luther King and his dreams of peace. Also introduce the idea of objects such as the dove being a symbol or representation of an idea or concept.
