Kids Celebrate Peace By ‘Hacking’ Violent Weapons

In honor of Peace One Day, a campaign called 'Create a Master-Peace' is inviting children and their families to create non-violent, neutral art out of previously dangerous items.

Friday the 21st marks Peace One Day, a global day of cease fire and non-violence. The effort is sponsored by big names, such as Dior, Coca Cola, British Airways, Google, and Skype. The organization says the day not only stands as a symbol of hope and action, but allows humanitarian agencies and organizations to focus on helping others and saving lives.

In conjunction with the celebrations, meetings, conferences, and a concert featuring Elton John and James Morrison in Wembley Arena, a campaign called ‘Create a Master-Peace’ is sending out an invitation to children and their parents and friends to show a sign of solidarity and peace by ‘pacifying’ and neutralizing play weapons with white paint, bubbles, flowers, and decorations.

The campaign’s website offers ideas, stencils, and patterns to inspire participants to create creative non-weapons, such as the ‘machine pun’ and the ‘petal pistol.’ Children can upload pictures of their creations to the website, which has a master gallery.

For more information and to find out how you can participate visit the Peace One Day website or the Create a Master-Peace webpage.
