This activity is a fun and practical way for people of all ages to demonstrate that they understand the need not to be violent, and to affirm their commitment to live their lives violence-free.
It is especially good for young children who may not fully comprehend the way White Ribbon UK disseminate these messages.
What you will need:
Plastic trays/bowls for paints
A large piece of white fabric
What you can achieve:
Personal affirmations not to be violent
Creates a fun atmosphere for all ages and families
Develop a permanent display to raise awareness
Dip the sponges in the finger paint and cover hands
Tip: rolling the hand slightly gives a better imprint on the banner
Get them to make their mark on the banner!
Clean hands using wet wipes
They can use a marker pen to write their name and a short message
Ensure they understand what this action means
If parents/guardians are present, give them a leaflet
Once you’ve finished with the activity, allow the fabric to dry.
Find a public place to hang it up to display the work you or your organisation has done with young people to ensure they understand our message of anti-violence.
