PRIDE is all about being proud of who you are and accepting others for who they are. These are core parts of the GFS programme. In this activity, the girls will make flags to celebrate who they are.
If you would like more resources about how to talk to children about LGBTQ topics, we recommend this website https://www.welcomingschools.org/resources/challenging-questions/
Fold your paper in half and place your straw/stick in the fold.
Stick it down in place and then glue down the two sides of paper
Use your colouring pencils to create your own pride flag with eight different coloured stripes.
The pride flag has different colours to represent different traits. You can name your colours for things you are proud to be. For example, you might add a pink stripe on your flag to represent creativity, because you are proud of your creative skills.
Once you have coloured in the first side of your flag, flip it over and colour the other side.
Once everyone has finished creating their flags, share your flag with the group and explain the colours you have chosen and all the things they represent which you are proud to be and the traits you are proud to have.
