Handprint Crafts for Black History Month

This yea I am so excited to share with you all the new Black History Month activities we are doing in our house. We made crafts for Rosa Parks using paper plates, we used toilet paper rolls to make craft for MLK and Ruby Bridges and Harriet Tubman. We also created a solidarity sticky wall and a rocket ship craft using paper towel rolls. But these Black History Month handprint craft of MLK, Dr. Mae Jemison and Rosa Parks are definitely one of my favorites!
