Martin Luther King Day Banner

This hand banner craft honoring Martin Luther King makes a good class or family project. Why not make the banner long enough to circle a room so it joins together in a unified circle? Each child can use a different quote and think about its meaning.


Construction paper-various skin colors


Glue Stick



Click on Printables and print out the quotes. You may want to enlarge them for easier reading. Cut out a number of handprints, making half left hands and half right hands. Either cut out and glue on one of our quotes to each hand or have children research and write on their own.

Take one left hand and one right hand and glue the ends of the index fingers and thumbs together. Make lots of pairs of hands in the same way.

Glue the pairs together by overlapping the little finger and the edge of the palm. Hang your banner.
