United Nations Day

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:30 pm

United Nations Day

United Nations Day will teach little ones about other nations and children around the world! They will also learn how their actions can affect others through activities like flag making, dancing, and story time!

Time: Peace Gathering @ 11:00am; Let’s Move @ 1:00pm; Sensational Story Time @ 3:30pm

Activities times may vary and are subject to change.

  • Smart Art: My Flag > Children will use the initials of their name to create their own flag and add it to our mural in celebration of United Nations Day.
  • Peace Gathering (11:00am): Join us for a joyful morning of music, friendship, and unity. We will sing interactive songs about virtues such as love and kindness with musical instruments. Children are welcome to share songs, poems, and prayers from all religious and cultural backgrounds to create a warm and welcoming environment of unity in diversity.
  • Let’s Move (1:00pm): Happy Dance Around the World > Join us in Orange Plaza as we dance to the song Happy (by Pharrell Williams) with children from around the world!
  • Sensational Story Time (3:30pm): Whoever You Are > Every day all over the world, children are laughing and crying, playing and learning, eating and sleeping. They may not look the same, speak the same, or live the same, but inside, they are all alike. This story urges us to accept our differences, to recognize our similarities, and-most importantly-to rejoice in both. After the story, children will create their own Earth to take home using coffee filters and food coloring.

Play Partner: The Bahá’í Community of Irvine

Grown-up Tip: Talk about other people’s feelings with your child. Lily is feeling sad because you took the bear from her. Example: Please give Kayla back the bear and then you choose another toy to play with or ask her for a turn. Young children are learning how their actions can affect those around them and how to make things better when they cause another person distress.
