Step 1: Think about a what you care about: Is it the environment? Black Lives Matter? Girl Power? Animals? Reading? It can be anything, even a kind word.

  • Create a short, bold sentence that brings attention to your cause. Sketch your words on a poster board.
  • Or, draw a picture! For those peaceful protestors that can’t yet write, a drawing or scribble can communicate a thousand words

Step 2: Decide on COLORS for your poster. Bright and eye-catching? Dark and contrasting?

  • Decorate your sign with crayons, markers, or paint.
  • Remember, there’s no wrong way to make a protest poster!

Step 3: Attach your carboard tube, paint stick, or branch to your poster using glue or tape. Or, just use your hands!

· Proudly display your peaceful protest poster in your front yard, bedroom window, or in a parade.

Keep using your voice to make a positive difference in the world!
