From A Crafty Arab: Black Lives Matter Painted Rocks Tutorial
My daughters wanted to participate in the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement that is happening around the world. We crafted these BLM rocks to jump start conversations with other kids.
In the past, I have taken them to protests to voice our opinion. Lately, the city where we live, Seattle has been tear gassing peacefully protesting children. Also troubling, recently a terrorist drove through a crowd, then shot a gentlemen who had been peacefully protesting.
We brainstormed other ways we can help create change. Other than participate in a protest, we wanted to bring the unfair systematic racism conversation into our community.
We decided to add BLM rocks to a local area park. They were placed close to the sidewalk, to be seen & taken as conversation starters for other kids.
Below are the steps to how we made them, in hopes that others will do the same to start other similar conversations. I received the supplies for my role at Plaid Ambassador.
