September 21 is a very special day. It’s International Day of Peace and World Gratitude Day. Both are wonderful holidays for adults and kids to observe. Today, I want to share some activities that parents and kids can do together to observe both holidays.

International Day of Peace Activities
I have lots of equality and peace resources for parents and teachers.
At Living Montessori Now, I have a post with lots of resources for singing peace around the world on the International Day of Peace (or before if the International Day of Peace is on a weekend).
Education World has directions and templates for making “pinwheels for peace” for International Day of Peace
Amy at Kids Activities Blog has a pinwheel-making activity for world peace.
Teacher Vision has a free printable peace pledge page.
Here, I have posts called “How to Help Your Kids Have an Attitude of Gratitude” and “How to Help Your Kids Have an Attitude of Gratitude, Part 2.” I also have “November Gratitude Inspiration and Activities” and “20+ Family Gratitude Activities.”
At Living Montessori Now, I have a roundup post with Montessori-inspired gratitude activities.
I have a category of gratitude posts here with inspiration for a number of ages.
Have a wonderful International Day of Peace and World Gratitude Day … and a wonderful time spreading peace and gratitude any day!
Note: It’s still No Kid Hungry Month. You’ll find lots of activities for kids and adults in my posts “Are You Going Orange for No Kid Hungry?”, “Fighting Hunger through Social Media,” “Using Children’s Books to Raise Awareness about Hunger (+ Moms Fighting Hunger Blog Hop 2014),” and “Hunger Awareness Activities for Kids.”
