Instructions: For Martin Luther King Day last year my pre-k decorated an old sheet by spraying different colors (food coloring and water) from a spray-bottle all over it. Children take turns spraying the sheet with the color they choose. The colors will mix and blend as they are sprayed on. Then after the sheet dried I cut it into squares and let everyone take a piece home.
Alternatives: This could also be done outside if it is warm outside.
Comments: We watched the colors mix and talked about how people are different, just like the colors, but how they can live/work/share together (just like MLK believed). Children also learn about cooperation and working together in a group.
