  • Let’s make a sign to stand up for what’s right!
  • Let’s look around us for something that we feel isn’t right or fair. Let’s choose an issue that matters to us like littering, protecting the environment, protecting animals, or keeping children safe and healthy.
  • Let’s use paper and markers or sidewalk chalk to make a big sign that reminds people to do what’s right. Let’s draw and use words to make our point!
