We’ve developed this toolkit as a resource to offer suggestions for hosting a Peace Fair at your school or parish in honor of Pax Christi USA’s 50th anniversary year. Included are a sampling of activities/projects that can be used in a classroom, at a meeting, at a Pax Christi celebration or special event.
You will find many ideas for community celebrations of peacemaking and peacebuilding in this document. We invite you to use them as an individual, family project, in a classroom or as part of a Peace Fair. A Peace Fair can be one day or a week of activities in which a group of people, young and old, come together to celebrate and learn about peace. Many of the activities presented in this resource are for children and can be adapted for teenagers and young adults.
Each idea is developed enough that the coordinator does not have to research or spend time looking up each activity.
Please feel free to make a booklet from these pages to use not only on the 50th anniversary of Pax Christi USA but anytime you have the opportunity.
